Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

Thought this was a Psathyrella, but the spores look more like Coprinellus. No cystidia found.

Gill material included cells/structures seen in second micro.

A non-trivial percentage of spores appear to lack the black pigment seen in most. Mounted in Congo red.

Landscaped area with woodchips.

The name is my best attempt for the Psaths I found today (obs 250301) based on gross macromorphology and habitat. I have 0 prior experience with/knowledge about the taxon, but your obs reminds me a lot of mine. If you pursue it further I’d very very much like to see your results.
