Recognized by sight: Black spores, brown stem, close gills

Recognized by sight: The species concept of Agaricus (Panaeolus) cinctulus is based on a drawing made by Bolton in 1791. No type collection exists. Since it is not possible to know whether Bolton’s species was Panaeolus subbalteatus, P. olivaceus or P. fimicola, I consider Panaeolus cinctulus to be a nomen dubium.
Based on microscopic features: The gill faces need to be checked for sulphidia; the presence of these would indicate that it is probably Panaeolus fimicola.

i am proposing the name Panaeolus sp. because P. foenisecii has brown spores, yet the spore deposits on the cap of one of the previously underlying mushrooms in the photo are black, indicating it is another Panaeolus species not in the section Panaeolina.
