conical... hmm.

if the spore print is dark purpleish, I'm guessing psathyrella based on your description, and definitely not active. you should have noticed a very obvious blueing on this white stem had it been active.

Perhaps conical, is not the right discription for the cap shape. The cap is shaped the same as the picture of Panaeolus castaneifolius in the hunting gallery.
