As far as I know it isn’t a precise term, and this is the kind of situation where it is to be used…

Coprinellus dissemninatus and its lookalikes are all in Coprinus subsect. Setulosi, given that that sect is now known to have Coprinellus spp, Coprinellus sect. Setulosi. Coprinellus dissemninatus group might also be an okay name, but I’m not really sure about that and personally go for more conservative names. The true C. dissemninatus likely occurs outside of Europe too, but I would not assume they are all that, especially for the Southern Hemisphere and/or (sub-)tropical locations. Sadly most field guides go for the path of least resistance when it comes to Psathyrellaceae and should not be trusted…

Here is a European reference that might help, it does work for North America occasionally.


Thanks for the info/Question

Was not aware it was European name. How are you getting it to/guessing sect. Setulosi? I didn’t do any macro shots, and I can’t tell if they are glabrous or there are talae as mentioned in the key under this description.

Is a European name, given Alan’s work in Mexico it seems there are others that are still seem undescribed. So I would imagine in sub-tropical to tropical zones Coprinellus dissemninatus may not necessarily apply.
