Has anyone ever found Ovids? If so what do you think about this ID? They were found in dyed conifer mulch on Long Island NY. They were first noticed about 1 week ago but I was helping someone else out with an ID based on pictures and was not sure of the species. I’m quite sure of the Genus Psilocybe. I have experience with IDing and finding/fruiting a number of species ( Ps. azeurescens, Ps. Caerulescens, Ps. Cubensis, Ps. Cyanescens, Ps. Galindoii(Mexicana?), Ps. tampanensis (Mexicana?), Ps. weillii (Caerulescens?), maybe some others e.g. Pans, Gyms. But the first pic was a week ago. I told them to spore print them and I thought they were Ovids, but they did not do it. So then today they go back and find what you see in the later pics. I have not seen spores yet but I am still going with the Ovid ID... it matched all the major characters and without microscope work I think it’s a good ID. Any opinions or suggestions? I obviously recommended against injesting it at this point as I have not even seen the spores yet.
