These specimens are all the same. They all have the same veil attached at margin and are growing from the same deposit, but they don’t seem like Panaeolus papilionaceus I see in this area.

Looking through your pictures more, this is a mixed collection. A lot of these look like they could be P. cinctulus or one of the similar species as the spores show. Img 494363 shows something in the P. papilionaceus group though, probably other photos do too.

What do the cheilocystidia look like? Does it have sulphidia? How big are the spores? There is not enough info in this observation to prove or disprove P. cinctulus, there are other species that look similar, P. fimicola for a single example.

How many bluing Panaeolus are there in California? These definitely do not look like Panaeolus semiovatus. Do you think these could be Panaeolus cyanescens???

You need cystidia and sulphidia (If present) for Panaeolus identification… You are right, they don’t look like P. papilionaceus spores. P. cinctulus is a better name than P. subbalteatus.

You could be right Christian.

I’m going to look at the spores tomorrow.

at center combined with the features of the other fruitbodies remind me of Panaeolus subbalteatus
