The second picture DOES clearly show an annulus. Good call!

There are no dung Psilocybe in CA, with the exception of P. semilanceata, which this is not. See the notes in my name proposal for your other questions.

Rich, The partial veil is adhering completely to the pileus and not the stipe, but I see your point about the pileus shape and color.

How are you getting to species with two photos of desiccated mushrooms? Given the state of the mushroom and its habitat why isn’t Psilocybe a possibility? And what makes either of your proposals more likely than the other? Given the available information on this obs it would seem that more than one genus is possible and innumerable species.
