I was thinking pseudo veil… maybe a wet spot on the stipe where spores gathered. Otherwise looks a lot like what I’ve come to know as “Pan foe.”

I believe…

The gills are far too dark for pan foe. The molting deffinately points to Panaeolin species; however.

ah but perhaps a pseudo-veil…

a kink in the stipe where spores collected? Note the upside down Panaeolina in the group photo: look Ma, no veil!

Everything else fits Panaeolina foensecii: habitat, general gestalt, purple-brown spores.

Didn’t save these, but more are surely on the way! I can check for ornamented spores when more pops up.

I hear you, Dave…

this little guy definitely has a veil, but no good match to anything in Arora…suggestions, LBM lovers?

Maybe it’s just the focus,

but it looks like there’s a ring on the stipe… or at least a spore darkened zone.
