Yes, oblique germ pore is correct.

Did not test sulphidia.

Seems to me, if this has sulphidia and a germ pore that is “often very distinctly oblique”, P. fimicola is the best name for it. Without those features, there are lots of other choices. I’m using the Gerhardt Panaeolus key.

I am no fan of Panaeolus and I did but a few notes.
Spores from 11-14×8 µm, smooth, dark brown.
Cystidia only feebly capitate.
On cow dung in subalpine meadow at 1100 m NN.

Seems to me the closest match of all.

ID’d with Erhard Ludwig’s “Pilzkompendium” Vol.I.

Any more info?
