Brittlestem mushroom

Psathyrella sp.

Description:

Psathyrella is genus of fungi similar to the genera Coprinellus, Coprinopsis, Coprinus and Panaeolus, usually with a thin cap and white or yellowish white hollow stem. But the caps do not self digest as do those of Coprinellus and Coprinopsis. Some also have brown spores rather than black. These fungi are often drab-colored, difficult to identify, and inedible, and so they are sometimes considered uninteresting. However they are quite common.

Habitat:

Spotted on a small grass meadow. Pine trees and evergreen oaks forest.

Notes:

Camera Model: NIKON D300. Exposure Time: 1/60 sec.; f/11; ISO Speed Rating: 200. Exposure Bias: 0 EV. Focal Length: 90.0 mm. Flash fired
