Including this observation, here are 3 more which are probably all different species in subgenus Psathyrella…

obs 192454
obs 194804
obs 194805

I have only scoped the last one so far which has not proven very helpful, stuck somewhere in limbo between P_. fontinalis_, P. opacipes & one of the numerous variations of P. corrugis, but not P. gracilis sensu Smith due to the relatively short stem and presence of a veil despite that its supposed to be the same thing as P. corrugis which is also supposed to be genetically different from P. fontinalis, but how………….

Also, it may be somewhat hard to spot in the photos, but these had a pseudorhiza which is supposed to be a taxonomically important feature for some Psathyrella.
