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.

I will check and see if I still have these speciemens. If not my buddy’s yard is full of these in the spring so I can get more. They seem to like to grow in his yard wich is full of dog poop. Because of the poop the first thing I thought when I found them was Ooooo Pan oliveaceus. Psylosymon thought for awhile there that there was some corelation between the two.:)
