These grew out of wood mulch. I have also found them in my yard after mulch has rotted in.

But I guess Parasola leiocephala is more likely since it is in wood chips.

How are you differentiating Parasola plicatilis from P. leiocephalus & the species depicted in obs 104906 & 105563?

Byrain, thanks for the key link…

that’s pretty handy and there are few macro features that last for any length of time on many of these Parasola.

Oh, ok

This is most definitely a mixed collection, Parasola species don’t have a veil and do not deliquesce. The last two pictures show a veil and deliquescing.

@samh41, Parasola works for the first 4 and Coprinopsis works for the last two.

Split collection

If you can give me a relatively accurate names for first four pics and last two I will destroy page and re-post as separate observations.

You can find a key to Parasola species here – http://www.grzyby.pl/... (Under their old names) , that site can also be used for Coprinopsis and Coprinellus, but they are not all neatly under one subsection like Parasola.

Excellent to know

that there are a cluster of Parasola that seem to be mostly indistingishable macroscopically. I see that you’re making those fine distinctions from microscpy and I applaud you for that. Nice going. It makes it easier for me too as an amateur because now I can call them Parasol mushrooms that belong to a cluster of look-alikes. Someday I suppose I’ll find the time to read the paper that delimits the segregates of Parasola.

OK, I guess my off the cuff comments were directed toward the first pic only. I didn’t realize it was a mixed collection I was looking at and I didn’t look closely at any of the other pics.

I think we should also consider P. leiocephala and P. schroeteri for the first four pics, I don’t know how to distinguish them without microscopy.

oops, wrong new genus…

…I meant to say Parasola nor Coprinopsis.

How about Coprinopsis plicatilis?

I think of lagapus as shaggier without the orage blush in the center of the disc.
