As with this observation:
http://mushroomobserver.org/18255

I think it is difficult to distinguish between at least three species within the subgenus Psathyroides, stirps Lepidota without examining the spores.
However, I think P. subtruncatispora is most probable based on this feature described in Smith’s monograph:
“in age the margin lacerated somewhat”
