    I found a small cluster of mushrooms out side of my barn last night. I live in North Texas just north of Dallas. They were growing in a small pile of horse manure in a horse stall in the shade. It has been wet and raining here lately and pretty humid. They are about 4-5 cm tall. The spore print that I took is purple. I believe that they may be Cubies but I'm not sure as I have never done this before and would like the opinion of someone who might know what they are talking about.. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. IMG_0343.JPG IMG_0342.JPG

    No these are not pslocybe mushrooms and do not come close to psilocybe cubensis.

    What books are you using for identification? If you do not have books, you do not go mushroom picking until you have a stack of ID books that you have read cover to cover.

    Being that far off in your ID is frightening, you are really not even close. That's how people end up dead.

    Next time you ask for an ID, make sure you describe; the stipe, the veil, density, type, and connection point of the Gil's, dimensions of all the parts, texture of the cap... If you can not do all this, you need to study harder before picking.
