I found these in my backyard after we had some rain. I live in the Prescott area. I was wondering if there is any chance that they are psychedelic. I'm pretty sure it's not, but I'd like a second opinion from an expert.

BTW - the small one has been drying for about a week, the big one was just picked today.

Those are Lepiotas, and based on the gill color in the small one, probably Chlorophyllum molybdites, a very nasty, poisonous mushroom. DO NOT EAT.

You can verify the ID by getting a spore print from the large cap. If this ID is right, it should come out a green-gray color. If it's wrong, it should come out white. If it comes out white, cut the stem and cap in half vertically and scrape the inside to bruise it. Then let us know what color(s) it turns. It can take up to an hour for the color changes to occur.

Happy mushrooming!
