Need Help to identify these little guys. Took a spore print yesterday and it came out brownish black. found then in mulch with mushroom soil(horseshit) under the mulch. Located in Central PA. I Know Not to Consume untill Im 100% sure but any help would be great. There are two kinds posted. Thanks, Mooseman

Resembles psathyrella gracilis indeed, for that species the spore print should actually be (very dark) purple-brown, can this be confirmed or disconfirmed? What I'm not sure about is the cap colour. The mushrooms mooseman found are too grey IMO to be psathyrella gracilis. Am I saying something stupid here? The closest match I can come up with is psathyrella conopilus, although that species has much browner stems...
