I would never. Haha.

The only species which I ever really ID to species macroscopically are C. albipes and C. filaris, though that may even be mislead.

Or Conocybe, of course…

Does look like Conocybe sp. indeed. Just don’t tell me what species without complete analysis :-)

That doesn’t look like any Psathyrella I have seen. The gills look especially rusty. I bet that if a spore print was taken it would be rusty brown. Spore colour viewed on a microscopic level can vary considerably from the macroscopic level.

Probably Conocybe, maybe Galerina.

Not velutina. Some other Psathyrella.

Couldn’t possibly be velutina. Here is what Psathyella velutina looks like, it’s one of the most distinct mushrooms.
