Looks scalier (And different) than any other Agrocybe I have seen before, even compared to the obs Jimmie linked. Also, as a side note, mycobank considers the current name Phaeogalera dissimulans while index fungorum uses Meottomyces dissimulans, as I don’t know which is correct I left both as accepted on MO… I wonder how many other choices around these genera or Pholiota there are to consider?

Does anyone know a species…

of either Meottomyces or Agrocybe that grows in moss?

Looking at some online photos labeled as M. dussinulans, there is a close resemblance to A. erebia… makes me wonder about my own erebia IDs. Spore shape would probably settle this question.

The ones seen in this obs have scalier stipes than what I associate with A. erebia.

Why Agrocybe?

There are other brown spored things out there…

Look clearly like Agrocybe to me, this one doesn’t, but I can see the resemblance. It’d be cool if there were some specimens available…

My ID wasn’t based on these photos but with an immediate downvote I feel I should reference other finds for the voting community
