Not like this… I have found single fruiting bodies before, but I was never quite sure if it was just immature or what. But in this case, they all have pale gills, at all stages. I am doing a spore print just to be sure, but i know it won’t drop anything. So no, I have never found an entire patch of sterile Psathyrella, I am pretty surprised!

Oh, neat. Do you find sterile fruitings with any regularity?

They are sterile.

Wow. Rather warm-brown gills, but …

I’m going to trust you on this, since I know you are wise in the ways of dark-spored things.
