Thanks for the genus id. The spore print is faint, but dark brown for sure. The spores are elliptic, smooth, thick-walled. I could not see the apical pore.

Cheilocystidia are numerous and large, very wide in the upper part. Pyriform is the closest match of the cystidia shapes shown in Largent et al, vol III of “How to identify mushrooms to genus”. There were also smaller cystidia with a pointed tip (obclavate?), but not on gill edges.

The PNWKC key to Psathyrella does not seem to have a description with the above features.
