No dung

Growing from charred soil and debris. Madrean oak-pine forest. Habitat is what caught my 6attention, i would have called it Psathyrella if not for the mottled gills and reddish pruinose stipe. Border Patrol horse patrol rides this area often, perhaps there was dung i couldnt see.

Edit. I remembered this was found growing with the Conocybe in this ob http://mushroomobserver.org/119046?q=ts55. I called it Galerina, but if its Conocybe it would make sense there was dung i did not notice.

Was this growing from dung? Was this in a forest?
