First of two Psathyrellas found this week. These were found in a swampy area, in grass and moss. You can see bits of the veil tissue on the margin of the cap, and the tissue is black from the spores.
I have microscopic photos from this one, and I’ll postem eventually here. Also I wanted to give the monograph of US Psathyrellas a try on these.
