I somehow thought I was looking at a Ronpast obs… :)

If you collect some of these, I will be happy to take a look for you. The more material and better pics I have to work with, the more likely I can produce something worthwhile as my micro skills are still rudimentary.

Coprinopsis marcescibilis, it would be really cool to see micro on this. If you can look at it closer, check the spores, the absence of pleurocystidia and cheilocystidia at least. The cap surface and looking on the stem would be good too.

You can compare it with my obs 87767 and you can find it described in smith’s Psathyrella book under the name Psathyrella fragilissima under subgenus Candolleana.
