Psilocybeweraroa1a

Psilocybe weraroa

Until recently this was known as Weraroa novaezelandiae

An irregular roundish head which is a pale blue-grey colour and about 10 - 15 mm diameter.

The fruiting body doesn't open to release the spores (a feature described as secotioid), so perhaps these fungi are dependent on small animals to release and spread the spores.
