if so I hope someone can prove me wrong. :)

Mykes, have you sent this to Christine yet?

I think that Panaeolus papilionaceus does that sometimes.

I consider it doubtful because the very clean non-appendiculate cap margin, I think at least one specimen would show some veil if this was P. papilionaceus. My vote is a bit of a toss up between ‘doubtful’ and ‘could be’.

Why do you consider Panaeolus papilionaceus doubtful? I always call mushrooms that look like this P. papilionaceus. I see there is a herbarium specimen, who has it?

Just Panaeolus papilionaceus

What species are in the Panaeolus papilionaceus group?

I think the “group” is a remnant from when there were several “varieties” that have since been synonymized. I imagine its easy to accidentally click on the group option instead of the taxon sometimes whilst proposing names.

Consists of which species exactly? Everything in Panaeolus sect. Panaeolus? Which species in that section are worth considered besides P. papilionaceus? We should be able to rule out P. venezolanus right away due to the absence of an annulus and the only other described species I am aware of is P. rubricaulis, but without an appendiculate cap margin (Or a hygrophanous cap surface) I don’t think that is a good name to consider either…
