Not Sure about Dung

I have not seen any dung around the area but a horse comes by once in awhile to eat the grass .

Panaeolus campanulatus

Almost a perfect match. Would have to be very young specimens to have white stipes. Color should turn brownish very quickly, either after handling or after some drying. Very common on cow or horse dung, according to Audubon Field Guide to North American Mushrooms. I bet it grows on other animal dung as well. Another problem: edge of cap should be decorated with “white, toothlike veil remnants”. I can see just one in one of the pictures. If this really was P. campanulatus and a young specimen, I would expect to see more white tips on the edge of the cap.

dung. I’ve heard it called Dung Dunce, but have forgotten the name.

…one of those little psaths or Psilocybes.
