Panaeolus cinctulus is highly likely.

 

@SayN If you care, these are now known as P. cinctulus. :)

Hi All,

 

Literally my first post here...

 

I found an abundance of these in my local park, are they panaeolus cinctulus?

that's the closest ID I've found so far, but I'd like to be positive before I go out and pick them.

Hi archigen.

 

I'm quite sure that these ones are Panaeolus foenisecii. They will have Brown coloured spores. You can check this by doing a spore print.

 

You do this by cutting the cap off the stem and then placing the cap onto some tinfoil or white paper for at least 6 hours. After this time you remove the mushroom cap and there should be a spore deposit left on the paper.

 

Panaeolus cinctulus will have Black spores.
