Help required, i know mushrooms even of one species can grow in many shapes and sizes. However this one really made me think, maybe it could be the rumoured liberty cap/blue meany/cyanacenes rumoured to grow in victoria of which i have never knowingly scene, but i heard they dont turn as blue, so maybe it is just a strange super resilient sub. aNY ideas? just wondering whether anyone could tell me whether this is another psilocybe mushroom similar to psilocybe sub, its characteristics seemed quite different to most other mature subs i have found. The only differing features i can notice from other subs i have found are; The cap as u can see is so domed, but another interesting thing to note, the subs i have taken spore prints from have all been a very dark purple to more so a black colour, where as this ones spore print was DISTINCTLY PURPLE so I was wondering if this is another species and if so i hope i kept the spore print :P
Found in Southern Victoria, Pine Forest Isolated single mushroom in pine needles Cap: 3-4cm in diameter domed and bell shape no nipple Also has a white veil around the perimeter of the bottom of the cap Gills, dark brown-black Stem very long hollow and thin, staining blue. Spore Print: Bright Purple anything else? Its easy to copy and paste some text u read, i was hoping someone might be able to understand what im talking about here! at least i posted it in the correct forum this one one of only a few specimens which were still some what healthy when i picked them, it was like a mushroom cemetary, so many black dryed up stalks and rotten caps.

Please read forum guidelines, you have to provide more information to get a worthwhile ID.
Quote: Accurate mushroom descriptions
It is critical that you describe mushrooms fully and accurately in order to get a proper identification.
A good picture of the mushrooms is invaluable, but not required. Along with the pictures YOU ARE REQUIRED to provide the following data:
* Habitat (where [woods, pasture, state,province,country, altitude] and what [soil, dung, wood (dead, living, what kind of wood?)] does it grow on) * Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc) * Characteristics of the stem (length, diameter, color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc) * Characteristics of the cap (diameter,color, texture, conical/spherical, convex/concave, etc) * Spore print color (very important!) * Color that the mushroom bruises * Scent of the mushroom * Anything else you might find important
