What I saw in the other obs, was a mushroom with a hollow stem, something I couldn’t recall in an Inocybe. Now I beleive you were right about that in the first place. Any mushroom that grows fast enough, can become hollow…

They are all over right now…..

but always in grass. I haven’t gotten a very dense spore print out of any specimen, but it is sort of grayish brown I suppose.

The other observation is the same species (I assume), just a different location.

It is interesting that Alan voted Psathyrella in one obs. and Inocybe in another.

Any trees nearby?

Any particular shade to the brown spore print?

My first reaction was towards a Cort.

The other observation looks the same to me. Don’t know of any red staining Psathyrella species, but I’m hardly an expert. :)

Inocybe was my thought too…..
