This is NOT Psathyrella velutina.

The cap is too smooth, the gills are not mottled, and the stem is all wrong. The spores will be wrong too.


While this is Agaricles, I dont think that is a good name for this observation as this is almost surely a Psathyrella. I guess you can argue that we need DNA to know which genera in the Psathyrellaceae this is, but that is probably not necessary and you should propose Psathyrellaceae if that is what you think.
