Observation 164148: Coprinopsis picacea (Bull. : Fr.) Redhead. Vilgalys & Moncalvo
When: 2014-04-21

Notes: Strong, deep corn smell verging on unpleasant.

As far as I can tell, obs 163829 and this are the only obses of a Coprinopsis that looks like this from Southern California… Must be the same species, looks the same, same day(!!!), similar habitat, maybe 40 miles away

In Europe which C. picacea can be confused with, spores would help, this and that other obs are the first time I have heard of them in CA.

Interestingly, I found a C. picaceus look alike on Palomar Mountain in November of 2005, still the only place in CA that I have seen it…
