Observation 64766: Panaeolus acuminatus (Schaeff.) Quél.

BLACK- not purple spore print, which indicates P.cinctulus formerly subbalteatus.
No zone rings on cap- but purple black stalk- NOT WHITE- with light dusty film before handled. High nitrogen fertilized grass on this sports field substrate. I have monitored these for two years now- they fruit at this time of year like clockwork and again in mid to late summer whenever the humidity and heat are high.

Positive they are not P. fo’s- Jet black spore print.

Temp- mid 50’s – light rain, partly sunny.

Have never been able to peg this one- much appreciated- I was always confused as to where to place it due to the black spore print and dark “dusty” stem.

The hook shaped stem base also seems to be very indicative of most collections.

Agree with the P. acuminatus-

Much appreciated
