On 22 October 1983 one of us (L.O.) found at Kjugekull in the parish of Kiaby, some 15 km from Kristianstad (Sweden), three carpophores (young and mature stages) of a characteristic species of Psathyrella, which, because of its overall brown colours and small spores (6.5—7 x 4.5—5 μm) belongs to section Hydrophilae (Kits van Waveren, 1985. 172). As we were unable to find a description of this taxon in the literature it was decided to describe it as a new species.
