Then what was the reason for proposing it?

Just to further vote against it?

I didn’t agree with Panaeolus

In fact I am very much against calling this collection Panaeolus.

Message me through MO or through shroomery when you have specimens to send. I would put them in a small box and have them marked as fragile when sending. The post service will probably crush them in an envelope. Also, if you find other lbms you want someone to scope in the future, please extract the stem base carefully and don’t crush the stem and all the caulocystidia on it.

that made you agree with Panaeolus?

Psathyrella can have jet black spores.

This is not Panaeolus cinctulus, there are wood loving Panaeolus described, but I would think Psathyrella is more likely.

No hints of brown or purple at all. I still believe they are Panaeolus.

I know they dont

Just saying not to rule out Panaeolus because of the wood. I don’t think my pictures are clear enough to tell if the gills are mottled.

The gills don’t look mottled.

Not all Psathyrella grow on wood.

I really doubt it’s Psathyrella

It was a very thin layer of woodchips, these were coming from the soil.
