Notes: This is my first attempt to identify an LBM and to use this site, so please bear with me.
Spore print was dark chocolate brown, maybe purple-brown.
These mushrooms were growing on the shady side of a hardwood log at the edge of the forest—possibly oak or cherry.
Caps were maybe 2 cm. wide at most, with a fibrous or spider-web like margin. The less mature ones had the spider-web like ring near the top of the stem.
The gills were white to greyish in appearance,crowded, and based upon that observation I’m eliminating Psathyrella hydrophila, which had the closest description to what I found in the field guide I was using.
The only key I could find to help me narrow this down was in the Stamets book on Philocybin Mushrooms (Probably not the best reference for this I.D.).
Hopefully, I’m not too far off base.
