We can call it Coprinellus sect. Micacei in the field too!

I guess we’ll all just call these little mushrooms C. micaceus in the field and C. sect. micacei on MO =)I’m good with that.

The inconsistencies on MO are baffling.

Thanks, Alan. I agree with you completely. C. micaceus is what I call it when I find it in the field. However, I was trying to be consistent with an earlier observation of mine (# 196206)which I posted as C. micaceus and which was changed to Coprinellus sect. Macacei. Can’t we all get together on these names somehow???
