Psathyrella candolleana

I rather doubt the above identification of the photographs as being this species. P. candolleana is generally a little more robust, though I do note that the stem width is given as 4mm. Almost always P. candolleana has remnants of a membranous veil on the cap margins. As the specimen has dried out a little, we cannot tell if it was pellucid-striate, which would fit P. corrugis and its many allies, but in the same state, the cap surface of P. candolleana would normally be whiter and smoother.

But as I indicated above, it is best to get some microscope data before identifying all but the most obvious Psathyrella species.
