Have you considered doing a spore print?
Many people consider this a useful way to help determine the genus of a mushroom.

The color of the spores is not always the same as the gills. Black spores would tell to it was a paneolus or a strophoria or some others, but not a psilocybe. Brown spores could mean cortinarius. dark purple could be a psilocybe. Any decent mushroom book from the library will tell you what to do. By the way, some members of the cortinarius family can kill you.
No offense, but when you say that you think it is a psilocybe based on your "research" and you don't know what a spore print is, my assumption is that you have the unwarranted confidence of a 16 year old.

I have done research on matching the species, its not too hard to look at a picture and depict whether or not it is the same. I am sure there are look alikes, but seriously what are the odds of those shrooms in my yard being psylocybe?

In my opinion, little to none.
A spore print, if it is other than dark purple, would rule out the entire psilocybe genus.

A fresh cap, elevated in chop sticks or pencils over a piece of paper should produce enough spores in about 24 hours for you to get an idea of the spore color. Also, if you have one cap overlapping another in your yard, you may be able to find a spore deposit on the top of the lower cap.
