Thanks Timmi. I’m still obviously very much a novice when it comes to identifying fungi, so I appreciate your comments! I intend to start getting into microscopy next year. A whole new world awaits…

But at least I got the Psathyrella part right :D

Very cool mushroom but…

it’s not Psathyrella echinata given the dung habitat. Perhaps Psathyrella hirta or another similar species. You would probably need to do some microscopy to be certain of the species.
