Are there any good complete keys for Coprinus?

The Ulje key has only 3 species, comatus, sterquilinus, & spadiceisporus, FAN6 has then same 3 + calyptratus, and then Mushrooms Demystified mentions 4 more, colosseus, palmeranus, alnivorus, & umbrinus, and mykoweb mentions one more, xerophilus. Where would someone go to attempt a thorough id on Coprinus? (Just a general question and I have no specific reasons to doubt comatus for this observation…)
