lowered the certainty

Thank you for your comment Byrain. I agree that this quite superficial determination was based on insufficient data for a 100% certainty. Coprinus/Coprinellus determinations without microscopy are frequently questionable. Nevertheless, presence of a mixture of soil and wood- and bark chips (edge of a rudimentary foresters’ road with a lot of ‘traffic’), abundant hairy fibrillose, whitish to silvery grey veil and the fact that this species can quite often be found in the region led me to say ‘I would call it’ C. lagopus. I lowered the certainty to ‘Promising’. Thanks again.
