Graceful Psathyrella (Psathyrella gracilis)

The graceful psathyrella (Psathyrella gracilis) is a common wood chip mushroom with an elegant, bell- to cone-shaped cap. The cap is hygrophanous, transitioning from deep brown to a pale buff as specimens age and dry out. This species is often observed with scurfy twiglet (Tubaria furfuracea).
