How interesting..........
Doug Fir litter eh?? - MeThinks a little test is in order.
Been experimenting with pine-cone litter as a substrate. Those conifers shed a lot of "trash" throughout the year and it would be nice to have a coniferous "composting" bin to manage lawn litter and ease the load on the land-fill.

Currently trying Gymnopilus on pine cone cob litter but Sub-ascens culture is mature and ready to try

Any other (scientifiallly intresting/edible) coniferous woodlovers you know of??

Thanks for sharing. I needed the ID photos for backup.

Some of them remind of chantarelles. Unusual shape for psilocybes.

They seem to be more pale, too. Cyans are kinda reddish.

True, but cyans often lighten as they age.

Psilocybes is the name of genus containing many psychedelic mushrooms.
Psilocybe (think of it as a last name) Cubensis (and name) is the most popular and most often cultivated species of psylocybin mushrooms. There are many strains (like B+, PR, mexican SA, Penis Envy and many others).
The most potent Psilocybe is supposedly Psilocybe Azurescens - also a woodlover like Ps. Cyanescens, Ps. Cyanofriscosa, Ps. Subaeruginascens and a few others. All woodlovers are very potent and quite a few species of them grow in California!

But the most potent psilocybin (as a substance) mushroom is Panaeolus Cyanescens. A mushroom from completely different genus, a dunglover. Close cousin of Pan. Tropicalis and Cambodginensis. They are also quite popular.

Due to macroscopic, microscopic and DNA evidence, I am now calling all west coast collections of Psilocybe subaeruginascens sensu Guzman Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata.
