Quote: Notice that several of the cap sufaces are cracking sort of like mud drying out? That tells us that the cap cuticle is cellular. Psilocybes have a filamentous cuticle, and won't crack like that.
I didn't get to see the pictures (got the cute red X's instead) but it gave me insight into the group I called "split top" above.
I've been Googling more and more on the web about IDing, and have found a couple of good sites and keys... here is one I thought I would share and maybe get feedback from the pros about how useful this simple guide is: http://www.nemf.org/files/menu.htm (Gary's Beginners Page) especially this: Simple keys to accompany this list - the two PDF files.
And I swear the advice coming in isn't going in one ear and out the other, I have been cataloging my finds so I'll have a source of future reference. And doing my own research to try to find the answers myself... I've noted in the first post, naming possibities for my finds.
