I kept them because they were soooo strange! to me. I was trying to guess the genus and thought it was almost like Psathyrella, I guess it isn’t thanks for the help, any thing in particular I should look for?

I was just complaining about never having found this genus…
Do you still have the specimens? Any additional information would be great.
