Galerina autumnalis has a quite similar cap to psilocybe baeocystis and Armillaria mellea (depending on whose classification you are using) sometimes. In general, if you are not familiar with the organisms don't eat them. I have never seen mycelia with any coloration and I've examined a bit. I have seen rhizomorphs with colored tips but I have never heard any research that indicates that this is anything other than a byproduct of the way it grows. BTW, taxonomy in the fungi is no easy task. They are quite unlike other living things. Read this page: about the honey mushroom or just google fungi taxonomy. Students and fundys could get pretty confused. This page, if you've ever sat through an upper division biology class in any specialty, you will appreciate. There is quite a story not told.

Who said that ev'ry wish would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it
Look what it's done so far
