Looks in Smith’s subgenus Psathyrella in his Psathyrella book. http://quod.lib.umich.edu/...

These are hard to identify with microscopy, documenting the habitat and sometimes the taste/smell can help.

If you ever hope to know what these are, you should take very good pictures and dry good collections for someone to scope (I can try, but I don’t hold much confidence in iding these). A swiss army knife can help dig them out in out piece and a tackle box is essential for getting them home.

Edit: The cap color could be a good clue…

Such a beauty – too bad nobody knows the species :-(
