We hunted this morning and found a considerable number of 'shrooms. We think they are copelandia cyanescens, but figured we'd let the experts take a look. They were found growing out of cow manure and a lot of hay or straw. The pics are pretty decent, the spore print looks dark, dark purple. The gills are a grayish black. They vary in size greatly. The only thing is, the stems haven't bruised blue yet. We agree that they look and smell "loamy and mushroomy". We are in northeast Texas, and we got a light rain last night, so things were pretty wet this morning. The stems are solid, thin, and they feel smooth. The caps are metallic looking and start to crack with age. I've dealt with other mushrooms, and these look, feel, smell, and taste (just a small piece) like cultivated mushrooms. Thanks in advance for any help!
