They may be, they certainly look like some types of psilocybe. There are several ways to tell, but firstly, do they bruise blue?

I can tell by the picture that they are not Amanita or Lepiota. Don't look like any Psilocybe. Do gills attach to the stalk? Any spore prints to tell spore color? ID of a mushroom just by a picture on the computer is next to impossible without other data. Never eat an unknown mushroom. slp/fmrc

For sure Stephen. Thank You.

A picture doesn't tell a thousand words with mushrooms. It could just be one word - deadly.

You should join your local mycological society for 'field trips' where you can learn to identify and gather a wild assortment of fungi - from deadly to gourmet. Mine starts up again in a couple of weeks!

All lies contain truth.

All truths are circumstantial.

All the mushroom are good for health or some are poisonous for human. I don't have knowledge on mushroom.
