Observation 27567: Psathyrella (Fr.) Quél.

Associated with coarse bark mulch in a planting bed. Abundant: several hundred specimens observed within a 30×30 foot area. If I had to guess, Paneollus. Cap brown, dunce-cap shaped, white stipes to 4 inches tall, mostly arising from chips; caps fading to near off-white with extreme age. Shown are several fresh, young caps.

Used references: Arora’s Mushrooms Demystified. Drawn to the description of the cap as “reddish-brown” which seems to fit this observation. May also be growing on coarse Eastern Red oak chips, as many of those trees are present in the park where this was found.
