Inocybe sororia is a distinctive poisonous Inocybe with a conical cap and a distinctive green corn odor. All Inocybes share a cap composed of radial hairs that may peel up to look scaly or lie flat to look fairly smooth, but almost always cause radial splits in the cap as the mushroom ages. The spores are a dull brown color and there is frequently a hairy veil in young specimens. Most are small dull colored mushrooms that I lump together as little brown crud mushrooms.
