I don’t see anything wrong with the id, just wanting to improve my understanding of the European P. candolleana complex. In the states I think there are others out there other than P. candolleana, but I do understand that Europe is supposed to have a lot less Psathyrella? Also, I recall reading stuff about some species being differentiated with breeding studies, I’ll have to look for more on that.

Edit: Here is some on that…

“Interfertility tests between a large number of collections from the Old and New Worlds show that there are 4 breeding groups [P. candolleana, P. elegans, P. scotospora and P. proxima] in the collective species P. candolleana.”

and with beech or oak forests I would say so although you can never be sure. But there are remnants of the veil on the margin of the caps and the white small slender stipe and thin cap context is very diagnostic.
Honestly I do not know. I have no special literature (monography or something like that), only the standard stuff as Moser and Horak respectively among others.
As I am not intending to deal with this genus in depth that’ll suffice for me. If there are uncertainties I bring them to Vienna.

Is this the only option in Europe? What would you recommend for European Psathyrella literature?
