Observation 7434: Lacrymaria lacrymabunda (Bull.) Pat.
When: 2008-05-03
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I found about four of these little mushrooms growing near a construction sight on a rocky, muddy hill. The second picture is the mature version and the first one is younger. They did not grow in a cluster but near each other.
Cap- Brown with a sort of rough texture and has a very weird shape when mature that makes it look like a baseball hat or something

Gills- Grey to purplish brown it’s hard to tell and changes in the light

Stem- white at base and gets darker to a light brown on its way up.

Spore print- Jet black, could be very very dark brown
