The are only two possibility:
1) Psilocybe aeruginosa (Curtis 1786) Noordeloos 1995 [= stropharia aeruginosa (Curtis 1786) Quélet 1872]
2) Psilocybe caerulea (Kreisel 1980) Noordeloos 1995 [= Stropharia caerulea Kreisel 1980 = Stropharia cyanea (Bolton) Tuomikoski 1953 sensu Orton]
The only macroscopical difference is the edge of the gill: barren (white) in number 1 and concolorous in number 2; unfortunately your photo doesn't show the gill but, even if I can't be sure, according to my experience, the general aspect advises Psilocybe aeruginosa (Curtis 1786) Noordeloos 1995.
Other differences are microscopical.

Hi Pedro, this is a pretty green mushroom. I love the colour of it. It's a busy scene, but that is quite normal for these ground shots. Well done.
Nice photo more DOF would have helped but then a tripod would be needed by the look of your camera settings. You may find better results if you use a reflector to get some more light under the fungi.
Don't think I've seen a green fungi before.
good POV but the DOF is just a little short and gives that blurring on top of the cap. Not bad though.
