Observation 135669: Coprinus floridanus
When: 2013-06-02

Notes: found on detritus/moss covered rock surrounded by pond and bald cypress, sabal palms, and oaks… there were hundreds of them all around me fruiting out of leaf litter/wood detritus on the ground, etc., but this was by far the best cluster… there were also the older purple-brownish specimens that were much larger AND much smaller, as well as the lighter tan-colored immature caps. All had white stems. Broke easily… very hard to keep intact… dried about 30 specimens and have them vacuum-sealed in the fridge.

Recognized by sight: Smaller than C. floridanus, although these differ greatly from my C. disseminatus find that was about 400-450 yards from this location (http://mushroomobserver.org/118210)
