|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Taxonomy is not decided yet what to do with this genus. Psathyrella has many species and has ben for a long time part of Coprinaceae family. Now, some specialist put them all togheter in their own family: Psathyrellaceae.|
Thiese are very young individuals of Psathyrella piluliformis, a mushroom growing on stumps of deciduous trees, but not avoiding alive trees too.
In the period of their maximum developement (which is in September), they grow fasciculate, in quite large patches. The cap is chocolate-brown, up to 6 cm, gills white and browning in mature exemplars, stem is white.
Few scientific works give any culinary value to this specie, one of them is my Ronmanian guide. I'll tell you that is good (I tried it myself), especialy that often can be found in large quantities, and of course, if you have a good recipe for it. I cook them in the same way like Marasmius oreades (with garlic, parsley, etc)

Ai interesting shot of these velvety capped mushrooms.
This reminds me very much of mushrooms I found in the forest on Mount Pirongia in the North Island.
They were called Agrocybe parasitica.
You can see the photgraph of them Here
Superb shot, a really lovely image. Nice angle and love that velvet texture.

I like your nice shot of these beautiful fungi so much. You have done this picture skillfully and presented this species perfectly. Especially I like their 3D-image and perfect flash work. Well done and TFS.
It is interesting to see where the mushroom can find lifeworthy conditions!
The image is well composed, with fine details in the caps...
