| Psathyrella species Maltese name not known|
| Further Information: |
Psathyrella is a genus of mushrooms and is similar to the genera Coprinellus and Coprinopsis, usually with a thin cap and white stem. But the caps do not self digest as do those of Coprinellus and Coprinopsis. Some also have brown spores rather than black. These fungi are often drab-coloured, difficult to identify (often needs the use of a microscope), and inedible, and so they are sometimes considered uninteresting. This specimen was found over a tree trunk which was cut nearly down to ground level.
