Agrocybe erebia is similar,

but overall darker brown in color. The purplish tint to the gills in 24785 does not remind me of Agrocybe.

Agrocybe was my initial reaction, though I do not recall seeing one like this before. I have the specimen. Maybe I will have a chance to take a closer look in the near future.

It could also be an Agrocybe

Dan, are you certain about the color on the ring resulting from the spores?

I have never found Psathyrella longistriata, as this is a western USA species. But your photos looks a lot like this one. If it is the Ringed Psath, that would be a very interesting find in Ohio.

appear to be more of a rusty brown than a purple brown that one would expect from Stropharia.

Young Stropharia?

To me, looks like a very young Stropharia species, without even mature gill coloration.
