Someone sent me a suspected Panaeolus papilionaceus from Lexington, South Carolina recently and I was surprised when the ITS sequence came back as a perfect match for Psilocybe tampanensis.   Taking a closer look at the pictures it shouldn't have surprised me, as it clearly is.  Microscopy matches too.
