I saw your TV appearance on the Vice channel.

Very well done.

I was curious about Curecat’s mention of red gill margins…

and found a lovely photographic example of P. prona here, from the field guide “Mushrooms of France”:

I think I know this one. Check for setae!

Alan, this is not even close to Psathyrella prona.

Seriously, do a proper analysis. Particularly check for setae on the
pp. I will expose several similar collections under Oak that have
setae, but are not the same as Psathyrella conopilus.

What was the size of the cap? Were they on the smaller isze, cap ~
1in/2-3 sm?

Was microscopy done? It COULD be, but this looks larger, the cap is more campanulate or paraboloid, the attachment is less or not at all decurrent (hard to tell), the gills are not red marginate, and the cap does not seem to have any pink tones. So I’m going to go with Psathyrella sp. .
