Observation 144546: Psathyrellaceae Vilgalys, Moncalvo & Redhead
When: 2013-09-03

Notes: found in mulch (pine, straw, oak, palm, fresh wood and leaf litter, etc.) in pineapple patch in my 1 month old permaculture garden. Pileus is 1-2 cm wide, fragile, and bluish-gray, and stipe is 8 cm tall, hollow, and very thin and fragile. Found in the same mulch as mushroomobserver.org/144397; however, this specimen was found alone in the fronyard, whereas the link above was found growing gregariously with other specimens in backyard.

You’re going to be hard pressed to identify this if it is really in Coprinopsis sect. Lanatuli. You should try going through the key here if you actually want to learn why…


Remember that is a European key, as far as I am aware there aren’t any keys that good meant for the States yet.

Edit: Also these two observations you applied Coprinopsis lagopus to are certainly not the same species, just look at the stem texture…
