    Hello, please help me identify these mushrooms I picked recently in Lancashire, UK - I hope most of them are Liberty Caps(Psilocybe semilanceata)? But I’m not 100% sure and would love someone’s help in identifying them. It’s my first time picking so still finding my feet, spent the last few weekends picking the wrong ones!

    Thanks you very much in advance

    Most look like libs to me, but don't take my word for it... wait for someone with more familiarity with these to chime in

    Most of those look good. Maybe some panaeolus in there. Ggt is the lib king.

    Thanks for your replies, I’m quitely confident about most of them, the last picture are the ones I was unsure about mainly, I think a handful of these might be libs, but majority look too dark?

    Yip all libs but maybe the odd panaeleous in there too, we get 2 or 3 in uk and they are mildly active, lovely little batch of Libs there though.

    Bon voyage and happy travels :hatsoff:

    Are you the Lancashire lass off Youtube?

    I would through the heavily degraded ones that are heavy spore dropping into your lawn :D you could add them to a pint of water and blender them up and then spread this all over a lawn and let nature do her thing
