I first noticed this growing on June 15th. The beginning of our rainy season. It is very warm and damp. It is growing in a lumber/concrete crevice in my home.

Any one know what this is??

Pholiotas are in the same family as Psilocybes. Some psilocybes (very few) do have reddish spores. Some psilocybes grow an woodchips. But I would doubt that is is a psilocybe because of the lack of hymen on the cap.
Most Pholiotas have gills that do not connect to the stem.
The only sure-fire way to identify fungus is to analyze the spores and gills under a microscope.

I recently had a comment that it is more likely a Pholiota.

I quote:

"More likely a Pholiota. Psilocybes do not grow on wood, and the spore print would be dark purplish black."
Any thoughts on that?
I am looking for a Mycologist at my University to enlist some help. But I dont think there are any there.

It would be good to find out, because they'll probably grow back. If you cut one of the caps off, then place it on a white piece of paper (gills down), then leave it for a few hours, it will give you a spore print, if you can take a picture of that, then you'd have a better chance at a positive ID.

Impressive collection you have there sir. My first guess would be Psilocybe cyanescens... but I'm not sure. I wish I could see under the cap where it connects to the stem. I'll do some research.
