Any mycologists here?

yep, those are mushrooms.

Not the good kind.....not good for salad OR clusters.

Psilocybe mushrooms, among other things, will "bruise blue" when you touch the stalk, as the psilocybin oxidizes.

Even that does not guarantee they are safe. Its really tough "accurately" identifying mushrooms from a picture.

Thanks Bob! I have a massive group of them in the spring and fall, apparently over an old stump in the ground. I found out they're Coprinellus micaceus. Good for nothing, as you say. We do get a lot of Hen of the Woods and Chantarelles that are really good.

I've long wondered if one could inoculate a log with pc and bury it so it fruits like this. I've seen other strains that like to grow this way, shitake, so why not psilocybe?

psilocybe species do not eat wood like shiitakes, they prefer to eat poop.  Try it, but my guess is that it would not work.
