Is this supposed to imply that it is not Psathyrella? Psathyrella gills are often attached.

Still not anything active man...

Pehaps you need to read the FAQ and/or buy a field guide.

I'm with Gumby. Those look pretty similar to Psathyrella candolleana.

Happy mushrooming!

The difficulty with this question has a lot to do with how much knowledge you have on identifying mushrooms. For example, if you think the cap color is relatively important, you may find Psathyrella candolleana that don't seem to look much like those at all. And you may find other species of mushroom that seem to look "just like" those but aren't even closely related. A quick flip through the photo section of the Audubon Field Guide will probably yield several species of mushroom that seem to look like those to you. As you learn more about mushroom identification your definition of "looks similar" will change. So if you and I were to flip through that book (or any other with a bunch of good color photos) we would probably come up with different lists.

There are several other Psathyrellas that look pretty similar to those. Without a microscope it's pretty much impossible to be certain which species you're actually looking at.

Happy mushrooming!
