Because the real Coprinopsis lignicola also occurs in North America. The type location is in Idaho.

How about

Coprinopsis “uliginicola” sensu NA?

What should we call it?

Perhaps Coprinopsis hebelomii nom. prov. since it looks like a Hebeloma, or Coprinopsis uliginioides since it is like P. uliginicola?

Good idea

I was thinking the same thing. A provisional name would be good.

It is definitely a Coprinopsis though.

“Coprinopsis” is a nearly useless name for this observation. Maybe create a name like “Coprinopsis sp. ‘uliginicola’”…
