Observation 14593: Psathyrella (Fr.) Quél.

This fungi was on dead wood at the side of a stream in an area that had canopy and has high rainfall. It was found in the early part of our Fungi season and I cannot remember seeing it before. It had little or no smell was delicate and the spore appeared to be light brown. It was raining at the time. There were no other simlar specis found. I do have a problem with the stem comparison in my references with the image. The colour is true and the height of the fungi (matured) was approx. 2cm with caps to about 70mm. The caps as can be seen tend to flatten as maturing.
I have added 2 more images to this obs as I am still unsure about the naming. The smaller and younger specimens seem to have a dark cap, and this fades as they mature. The caps do not seem to have enough "spikes " on them and the stems seem to be clean. Maybe another species could be suggested?
