We just found some mushrooms in the forrest near my house.. They have large caps (just smaller than a cd) Dull to Chocolate brown and totally flat. The most remarkable thing about them is that they have bright yellow gills. They are quite stumpy, only about 5-7 cms tall.

They DO blue. URGENT ID NEEDED please...help appreciated.

I'm only a recent amatuer at hunting mushrooms, but I am gonna say my impressions. Your mushroom is posionous. Well maybe not but you won't know without at least a better description and an expert opinion.

Even though I couldn't help you with the additional information, I think you need more information before anyone on this board could help you, because a sporeprint and habitat (you don't even say what part of the world you are in) are almost always needed to make an id (according to the stuff I've read). Information on the stipe (stem) would also be necessary. In some cases, the stem extends underground and without that part a complete id is impossible.

There are poisonious mushrooms that bruise blue, and from what (little) I understand psilocybes are rarer in the forests.

Assume it's posionous, because if it is and you eat it you may die, so even if you were 75% sure, it would be too risky.

If you need an urgent ID because someone ate the mushroom and is having an adverse reaction, gather the rest up and get to a hospital. If you need it because you want to trip tonight, be patient.
