Can anyone help me out with this mushroom found on woodchips?
The sporeprint I have given you looks purplish to me, though it looked darker before it got scanned.
The gills were attached, but seem to pull away easily from the stalk. Is that what you call adnexed? The gills turned dark brown as the mushroom dried.
The cap was about 2 cm across on the larger specimen. There was a very pronounced umbo. I have been using my scanner for photos until I get a digital camera that does close-ups, and the mushrooms got squished a bit, so the umbo is not particularly clear in the photo.
The stalk was about 6 or seven cm, and the roots were about 4 to 5 cm. Stalk about 3 or 4 mm in diameter. Stalk was whitish drying to yellow, and cap more a tan brown.

Given habitat and spore print color I would first guess Psathyrella. I don't have a good key to the genus - rooting stems as those have are very distinctive features and should allow them to be rapidly identified to species. The next most likely genus would be Psilocybe, in which case they would be one of the majority of species in that genus that are inactive and mostly obscure.

Is the cap slimy, or can you peel the cap?

Happy mushrooming!

Thanks for the psathyrella id and your suggestions about the above, TM. The only mushrooms in my guide that had a long taproot where phaeocollybia, though they were clearly a different species. A google image search though turns up a number of phaeocollybia with a shape close to the above mushroom.

Any other suggestions on the rooted stem on this puppy? Is this possibly an inactive/obscure psilocybe? Irritating thing is the mainstream mushroom people don't want their guides to be used for a lot of drugging and trespassing, so they say little about psilocybes as a genus, and the hallucinogenic people don't tell you anything about the non-active species.

Does it have a slimy cap? That is a characteristic of some Psilocybes. It is not a as rule a ussually a characteristic of Psytherella.

Yeah those look interesting from what I know. Does anyone have a clue for these?? The stalk is reminiscent of Psilocybe.
