From fan6:

“Coprinus micaceus differs from the other species in the complex by
the spores with distinct conical base and truncate apex, and the caulo-
cystidia on the stipe. Coprinus rufopruinatus Romagn. (in Bull. trimest.
Soc. mycol. Fr. 92: 205. 1976) differs from C. micaceus mainly by the
pinkish coloured veil, and needs rediscovery.
Ko et al. (in Mycol. Res. 105: 1519–1526. 2001) showed that there
are molecular differences in collections from different geographical
regions of the world.”
