Looking for help on an ID of a local mushroom I found this past Friday.
Habitat: Found in USA, Millersville, PA Lancaster county. Found growing in decaying mulch adjacent to a yard.
Gills: light brown to brown, while drying they turned dark brown/black
Stem: From white to light brown, some golding seen at base occasionally. I believe hollow stemmed, small/skinny stems.
Cap: Conical, dark brown during stages of growth and light brown when mature. Multiple bands of color seen around cap, light brown to dark brown.
Spore print color: Black.
Bruising: No color change observed.
Other information: I believe the mushrooms to be not fully grown to potential, due to poor conditions/specimen. Was thinking they were Panaeolus subbalteatus due to black spore print, but with this specimen it is hard to know for sure. Little help?
