I really wanted to call these Lacrymaria lacrymabunda but they had no fibrils on the pilei.
Fruiting in grass with magnolia, oak. Several present. 5cm tall.
Pileus: umbo medium brown fading to streaky tan. Margin turns grey as it ages. Veil remnants on margin. 3.6 – 4.5 cm.
Gills: mottled, beige when first found, brown an hour later. Attached.
Stipe: white at apex graduating to dark brown at base. Fibrous veil covered with black spore dust. 4mm at apex.
Spores: very dark brown, appearing black without magnification.
