Psathyrella candolleana group?

I showed them to Alan Rockefeller on facebook and he said they are Psathyrella; candolleana group. I’ve never seen anything like it and its definitely very different from any candolleana I’ve ever seen but I’m not an expert by any stretch of the imagination so I’ll take his word for it. I cloned it on agar from a mycelium covered stipe base and got a tiny spot of mold contamination but this thing took off, wiped out the mold and kept on going! very rhizomorphic and fast growth at around 80 degrees F on malt extract agar.

These look like they could be a Psathyrella, but admittedly with a thicker than usual stipe. Spores and gill look about right. Could there be toxins in the wood chips or other reason for environmentally prompted mutation?
