Psilocybe sierrae: Physical Description
Cap is conic to bell-shaped, expanding to broadly bell-shaped with maturity. Ochraceous to olive brown, bruising blue.
Gills reach the stem but do not attach and are initially clay coloured, becoming violet-brown with white edges upon maturity.
Stem is usually slightly enlarged at the base, pallid, and forms a well-developed partial veil that leaves a fibrillose annular zone.
