No specimen available

I came too the conclusion this is Panaeolus subbalteatus because of habitat(horse pasture), cap shape, oxidation on the base of sum of the stipes, and spore print(black), as well as white edges on the gills a feature always found with this species. The larger specimens were fruiting directly off of horse dung the smaller ones around the dung.

Notice the white edges on the gills.
I love this picture, the caps are wrinkled from sun exposure.
The caps tend too get scaly and cracked like this from exposure from the sun.
