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.

Thanks for your comments Allen, i can give you certainty that these were an active Panaeolus due to mild bluing at the base, habitat, black spore print, macro-details, and anonymous reports after ingestion. I’m not sure where the community stands on established names, as it has gone back and forth.
