 MycoBank #:513122 
 Authors (abbreviated):Örstadius
 Page #:79
 Year of effective publication:2007
 Name type:Basionym 
 Date public:2009-03-17 16:16:18 
 Name status:Legitimate
 Remarks:Psathyrella romellii is recognised by the copious veil near the cap margin, the abundant cheilocystidia, the often fusiform spores, and the absence of clamps. The often forked cystidia must be verified by future records. Psathyrella effibulata, P. purpureobadia, and P. immaculata also lack clamps. Psathyrella effibulata differs in having a scanty veil, more elongate spores, and in being nitrophilous.
Psathyrella purpureobadia has smaller
basidiomata, darker spores, and is usually
coprophilous. Psathyrella immaculata has
smaller spores and a white cap. The species Psathyrella fagetophila, sometimes likewisely growing on beech, is separated by larger basidiomata, a scanty veil, sometimes a red gill edge underlining, and the presence of clamps.
The species is named in honour of the
excellent Swedish mycologist Lars Romell
who recognized the species already in1890.
