ID Request - psilocybe look-alike?
    #26367706 - 12/07/19 09:26 PM (1 year, 2 months ago)

Habitat:
Grows on dirt, near large coniferous trees, hidden behind bushes. This was found in the Puget Sound area - very damp, wet, lots of pine trees and rainfall. It's possible that there's podzol beneath the topsoil, although I haven't researched fully into this possibility.

Gills:
Gills were a brown color, with the center being slightly creamier.

Stem:
The stipe was about 3 inches long, extremely dark in color, and very thin (broke/flopped as I handled it).

Cap:
About an inch and a half in diameter, extremely dark brown, with a "nipple" at the center.

Spore print color:
The spores were orange - images will be posted.

Bruising:
No bruising was observed.

Other:
This mushroom dried within 12 hours of starting the print. In the last picture, it is a dry and crisp cap, fused to the stipe despite being previously cut.
While scrolling through Wikipedia on members of the Psilocybe genus, I recall a dark mushroom that looked EXACTLY like the one pictured. Although this one has an orange spore print, I'd still like to identify it.

Images:

Yes, definitely not a psilocybe with that spore print color.
Idk, galerina maybe?

Entoloma is likely

It's definitely not a psilocybe, that's for sure. I've yet to find any article for the original psilocybe I had found on Wikipedia, and Entoloma is also a possibility.

Is there any more information that would be helpful in identifying this mushroom?

Yup, Entoloma,  the color of the cap and the spores being pinkish in color is classic

These pictures aren't really good enough to see details necessary to give it a species name, but I suggest something in subgenus Nolanea.
There are many brown colored sort of non-descript Entoloma species, and they often tend to require microscopy.

It helps if you can get well lit in situ shots and preferably pictures of several specimens in different stages of development.
Take a habitat shot too, if you can, and especially of the bushes it grows behind.
