I think absent.

About the 4 species, I do know as much as you. To be honest, Psathyrella is a mess for me.
P. candolleana is pretty common around here but if it is true candolleana or a variety or forma or independent DNA species I am really not sure about that.

Outer veil

Absent or rudimentary? I mean the veil on the cap surface many Psathyrella have.

The type variety of P. candolleana from Europe should have it absent, the one I see commonly here in urban CA has a rudimentary outer veil and the type I have seen in the woods has it well developed (With the spore Q value differing). There are supposed to be at least 4 species distinguished by breeding studies in the P. candolleana group also, but I don’t know much about that…
