Hat: In its youth, the cap of the fungus psaritella water-loving has a convex hemispherical or bell-shaped shape, then it opens and becomes a half-spherical. Scraps of a private bedspread can often be seen around the edges of the hat. The diameter of the cap ranges from two to six centimeters. The hat has a hygrophilous texture. The color of the surface is highly dependent on humidity, varying from chocolate in fairly humid conditions to cream in dry weather. Often the cap is colored with peculiar areas.

Flesh: The flesh of the cap is whitish cream in color. Has no particular taste or aroma. The pulp is not brittle, thin, relatively tough.

Plates: frequent, adherent plates in a young fungus are light in color. As the spores mature, the plates darken to dark brown. In wet weather, the plates can release droplets of liquid. Spore powder: purple-brown.

Leg: Smooth, hollow, but quite dense leg, three to eight centimeters high, up to 0.7 centimeters thick. Whitish in color. There is a false ring at the top of the leg. Often the stem is slightly curved. The surface of the leg is silky, smooth. The upper part of the leg is covered with a powdery coating, the lower part has a light brown color. Distribution: Psatirella globose occurs on woody remains. It grows on stumps in deciduous or coniferous forests, as well as around stumps and on damp soils. Grows in large colonies, connecting in bunches. Fruiting from early June to mid-October.

Similarity: From other species of mushrooms of the genus Psatirella, this mushroom differs in brown cap color and growing conditions. This is just one of many small brown mushrooms. It has a similarity to Psatirella gray-brown, but it is larger and does not grow so heap. Summer honey agaric has a similar color of the hygrophane cap, but in this case, the differences are much greater than the similarities. It is worth noting another similar small brown mushroom, which grows in late autumn in the same conditions, practically on the same stumps as Psatirella globular. The main difference between this mushroom is the color of the spore powder – rusty brown. Recall that Psatirella's powder is dark purple. Of course, we are talking about Galerina Okaymelnaya.

Edible: this mushroom is not considered poisonous, but it is also not considered an edible species.
