Observation 1325: Coprinopsis P. Karst.

Proposed Names

1% (2)
Recognized by sight: Based on the discussion I am not completely confident this was Psathyrella uliginicola, but I’d still call it that to distinguish it from other groups of Psathyrellas that can be separated out macroscopically.
28% (1)
Recognized by sight: The west coast version of Psathyrella ulignicola has been sequenced and the ITS region is 91% similar (647/710) to the holotype of P. uliginicola. See http://scmycoflora.org/sequencing/specimen.php?project=6 and http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nucleotide/557116293. This species falls within Coprinopsis.

Which P. uliginicoloa

I just saw your notes on http://mushroomobserver.org/6789 about some of the similar species. I did no microscopy on this (it was during a fungus fair). At the time I was certainly unaware that there were multiple potential species. It was an id based on gross morphology and gestalt based on material I’d collected in the Santa Cruz area. So it would be reasonable to add Psathyrella as potentially a better name. However, in my view Psathyrella uliginicola is a closer match even if it is too specific.

It would be really helpful if you could at least add a comment on the Psathyrella uliginicola page or start a description of the species that discusses the other close species and how to tell them apart.

‘Imageless’ doesn’t apply

Based on the reasoning given by Danny on the Imageless page. This was not an unknown that I neglected to provide a photo for. It was a familiar species that I didn’t take a picture of. It was a bit unusual since it was from southern California.

Edit: nvm, didn’t wait long enough for the comment…

There is more then one species with the P. uliginicola name on MO though, which one do you mean?
