There are many species of Psathyrella….

and of those many different possibilities, many of them have dark purple-brown spore print. Durable/fibrous stipe points away from genus Psathyrella. So it may represent a species from some other genus… Hypholoma? Psilocybe? Maybe someone else will weigh in on this.

Almost certainly not P. candolleana.

not sure

the stem was very durable and fibrous. different from most psathyrella I’ve found. thought it might be candolleana because of the purple spore print.
