Maybe deliquescent was too much… I’ll fix it. Because the spore print was not very thick I’ll change it just to brown.
but a few things seem out of place. Pileus is described as “deliquescent.” But I see no typical such indication of this in the pics… gills/pileus blackening and liquefying. Stipe is described as “flexible”, which would seem unusual for a Psath. Spore prints colors for Psaths are generally very dark brown or purplish (often appearing black when viewed against white), but there are a few types with prints that are reddish, pinkish, or brown.
I would post a guess of “Psathyrella”, except for the three things cited above make me hesitant.
