observation 133331.

Same day, same habitat, same yellowish stem which darkens at the base.

The two collections are only an hour apart.

it’s so dimly lit that it could be a host of dark colors, of which blue is one possibility. many a marasmioid hosts darker stipes/stipe bases.

i have to call this A.s.l. until or unless more info is presented.

or just among it? i see no bases clearly attached. they all descend beneath our plane of view. more reasons to get more info.

i even jumped to Psilocybe at one point…lol.
i thought i saw blue bruising at the base of one of the stems…

in which case

that gill snipit we can see would indeed be hiding the true spore color. more info/views are needed.

growing from dung??

my best guess was Conocybe…

some of these images

show white-ish gills near the cap margin, which could potentially coexist with less than light colored spores, but my guess is it’s another slender marasmioid/gymnopoid something or other.

very interesting…
