white Psathyrella

Douglas, there is an all white Psathyrella which is pretty common in the Bay Area, CA. I mean, the lamelle are black, but the rest is snow white. I seem to remember coming across the name for the mushrooms I am thinking of, but I can’t seem to place it at the moment.

Okay I found the mushrooms I am referring to, but not the name yet.

Why go with Psathyrella on this one? If it has dark spores, maybe a Coprinus-type also?

Why do you call this Psathyrella?

What colour are the spores?
