Hmm. You’re probably right. I guess I’ll have to take a closer look next time as you have fogged my brain with nagging doubt again…

If the two images in observation 44685 are the same species, then the cap is not pleated, but very striate-translucent when wet. The one pictured here actually looks pleated or ridged. If the mushrooms in the second image are in fact pleated, then your observation shows two different species.

Not saying it’s the same Psathyrella, but I found some that look sort of similar to that with the pleated cap and that in 44685. Second pic down…

The gills are convincing (for Psathyrella), however, I still don’t know of a Psathyrella with a pleated cap. This is probably a Coprinellus instead.
