Clusters of these. Margin is darker than the rest of cap as it begins to decompose. Many clusters in mulched planting. Dark gills.
Psathyrella? I don't know, just a guess.
I'd guess Psathyrella, but there's always the possibility of Panaeolus - if there's manured grass in the area. The stem, then, would be stiff, not hollow and fragile, and the gills would be mottled.
Hi Gary, I was pretty lazy about this and just took pictures. It looked like some of the spring time stuff I was seeing in the BBG mulched areas. The younger ones around them seemed to have redder caps, cobwebby veil and likewise clustered. I'm not aware of manure in the mulch but perhaps there is, I don't know.
was the stem hollow or stiff? did you make a spore print? gills look white-edged. any more info? any manure in the mulch?
