Recognized by sight: The species concept of Agaricus (Panaeolus) cinctulus is based on a drawing made by Bolton in 1791. No type collection exists. Since it is not possible to know whether Bolton’s species was Panaeolus subbalteatus, P. olivaceus or P. fimicola, I consider Panaeolus cinctulus to be a nomen dubium.
Based on microscopic features: The gill faces need to be checked for sulphidia; the presence of these would indicate that it is probably Panaeolus fimicola.

Thanks for the correction. The group on the left is definitely Agrocybe. I checked that mushroom the day after posting, but forgot to post the correction.

I was seeing a lot of P. foenisecii on that lawn in 2011…

Looks like Agrocybe, not Panaeolina.
