that I’ve been finding. Arora mentions a ubiquitous but unnamed Psathyrella, frequently found in this area, that is in the shaggy Psathyrella category. I don’t know if it’s since been named. Maybe this is it?

Definitely Psathyrella

In Arora, look under Psathyrella carbonicola and P. canoceps. You may want to commiserate with Debbie Drechsler about mysterious shaggy Psathyrellae.

I agree with Alan, Psathyrella

Don’t know the species off the top of my head due to the pretty squamules on the cap. I’ll see what I can find tonight if no one else recognizes it or has a chance to key it out.

Probably a Psathyrella.

Need more pictures when they are older

I would guess these are dark spored and either a Pholiota or Psathyrella, but I’d need to see mature caps mushrooms to be sure.
