Habitat:
Found these at my uni in a mixture of wood mulch, soil and dead leaves, unsure of what kind of wood chips though.

Gills:
Attached, light brown to darker brown in older specimens.

Stem:
4-8cm in Length, approx 0.4cm in diameter, whitish brown in colour, breaks easily , is hollow, and quite thin.

Cap:
all around 2cm in diameter , caramel brown in colour, turning light pale brown when bruised or left out for a while. Quite slimy when wet, is spherical and convex in shape.

Spore print color:
unsure of specific colour, looks dark purplish, but could be blackish blue

Bruising:
minimal bruising- orange brown

Smell:
has that common "mushroom scent"










the spore print leads me to believe that it could be a Psilicybe, but the bruising tells me otherwise....help!

No, it's not a psilocybe, although I can see why one could mistake it for a species in that genus. Still, it looks to me like a psathyrella species.

The lanky, fibrous but brittle stems combined with the shape of the cap and the habitat. I'm not 100% sure if it's in the psathyrella genus btw; it could e.g. also be a conocybe species. Perhaps that's even more likely, as the caps don't seem particularly hygrophanous.

Psathyrella conopilus.
