Description: Original observation #7909 (Mushroom Observer)
Occurrence Remarks: These were found and brought to me. They were in among moss, and with the brown caps, and the lighter colored gills it was thought they might be Galerina. I put them under the scope, and not so much. They have short cheilocystidia which were pointed to subcapitate, no pleurocysitidia. Which could be Galerina, but the spores gave it away. They were non-dextrinoid, thick walled, smooth, smokey-brown in KOH with a clear germ pore. Which makes these Psilocybe. They were found near another collection of older P. montana.
