Excellent if you have the “The North American Species of Psathyrella" by AH Smith. I used that book to key it out in the first place. It keys to page 37 Psathyrella velutina. Notice how the spores place it there. The description, habitat, distribution, B&W photos and even the spore drawing in the back are a perfect fit.
When I went to Index Fungorum it had a new name. Lacrymaria lacrymabunda
The Fungi of Switzerland Vol 4 has this species and the spores look identical. They are NOT smooth. So, what has become of Smith’s species on page 53? I have no clue.
I am not sure that Lacrymaria lacrymabunda is the correct name for this one. In “The North American Species of Psathyrella” by AH Smith page 53, it says that Psathyrella lacrymabunda has smooth spores, while the spores pictured here are warted.
I would like to know what this is because I found a very similar species in my neighbors garden. It is here: http://mushroomobserver.org/4161
