Eh I found this mushroom in the dark last night. It was in wood mulch where sprinklers had been wetting it. It immediately started bruising darkly from its carmel color, I could not tell in the light I had if it was black or blue. Now in this picture it looks black maybe with a tinge of blue or not, hehe who knows. I am unable to get a print, the gills are mangled and it just wont print for me. There seems to be a broken veil on the stem aswell. This is a long shot id but maybe someone more experienced could tell by looks.

The mushroom looks way too destroyed to make any kind of ID.Maybe someone can but I doubt it. Try to find another one if you can and someone would sure give it a shot at an ID. Good luck!

dont eat it, im goint to make a first ever suggestion that you have conocybe cyanopus or smithii.
i ONLY make this HYPOTHETICAL >>>GUESS<<< based on the assumption that it has orange gills and a bluing reaction rivaling a very potent psilocybe. once again, DO NOT EAT based on this POSSIBLE identification.

if the bruise is black then perhaps it is a very old and mangled hygrocybe conica, but then the cap would ALSO bruise black from the poor handling. this would also explain lack of print if you were printing on white paper as this (H conica) has a white print.

that definately isn't a hygrocybe- more liekly a conocybe. The stem tells the story there.

the bruising appears to be reddish-brown. i have done a few color adjustment/enhancement tests on it in photosuite and can not conclude the presence of any blueing; though this does not mean there is none, it does mean that there is no evidence at all to suggest a psilocybian nature.

if you are having trouble obtaining a print and te cap seems a bit dry you can try placing a drop of water on the center of the cap during the printing proccess and repeat anytime the cap appears to be drying again.

Hehe.

Yeah I have been putting water on the cap, no cigar there. =/ Maybe I'll try it on foil in case it is a white print that I am not seeing.

how long have you been waiting on the print?

btw: if you suspect a white/light print, try taking it on black paper instead of foil.
i do not think the print is going to be white but check anyway.
