When: 2014-10-27

(observation 188078) was found in the same area. It has a jet black spore print but overall looks pretty similar to these. Is it also likely to be a Psathyrella? Not saying that I disagree, I’d just like to know what you guys think about this one. Also, are there any species of Psathyrella you guys think look similar to these?

Psathyrella can have more durable stems too, its mostly a gestalt thing for me, but the habitat looks too muddy and not grassy enough for Panaeolus and also the gills don’t look dark enough or enough for the jet black spored species or quite brown enough for the Panaeolina species nor do they appear very mottled.

I agree that it could be a Psathyrella sp., but what features point towards Psathyrella for you? I didn’t notice the stems snapping and they generally seemed more like Panaeolus stems to me.
