Observation 19090: Coprinopsis romagnesiana (Singer) Redhead, Vilgalys & Moncalvo
When: 2009-02-25
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Sorry, this turned to goo before the weather turned sunny, so I wasn’t able to preserve it.

I believe this is the same species I saw in Torres, and I remember Nathan wanted to see a cross-section of it. You have only to ask…

This was quite common in this area, always in clusters.

The smooth cap with the broken up scales looks a bit more like Coprinopsis than Coprinus.
