Observation 202351: Psathyrella (Fr.) Quél.
When: 2015-04-04
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Habitat – Hardwoods – Growing out of old dead hardwood log.

Although spent, the two specimens were interesting. The spore bearing surface was ridged. I’m not sure if these are considered gills. If gills they have a depth of about 1.5mm

The torn cap had no smell.

The cap (excluding the gills/ridges) was thin ( ~ 0.1 – 0.2 mm) but not fragile).

I was not able to get a spore print. However, when I added H2O to a bit of the “gill” on a slide, I could see a cloud of very dark brown spore.

Cap diameter – 1.75 inch

Stem length – 2.5 inch

See image with ruler.
