The majority seems to disagree with me on this one, but no one has presented an argument.

I wish someone would speak up and detail WHY this resembles a Conocybe
The image quality is horrible, but I get the impression that people are voting without taking a closer look.

The cap looks secotioid and the pileus is some what shiny and granular, like Panaeolus. That description might be bad… Here is a photo of what I mean:

The stipe is also darker, redder, and less flimsy than Conocybe.
