Description: Original observation #83395 (Mushroom Observer)
Occurrence Remarks: Caps on these were up to 3.1 cm across. They were growing in grass in the middle of a dirt road used heavily by horses. The stems were relatively pliant and not extremely fragile for their small size. The spore print was black to purplish-black. The spores were ~ 10.8-12.9 X 7.9-9.0 microns with a small neck and germ pore. The caps all had a rather flat-domed shape and the gills adnate, some with short decurrent teeth. The gills turned very dark brown to blackish in age and only slightly mottled. The Cheilocystidia was small and somewhat strangulated.
