i was reading that many field guides mistakenly refer to this species as Corpinus pilcatils. Although they are different.

Coprinus plicatilis

is not synonymous with Coprinus leiocephalus or as it is called now Parasola leiocephala. There are clear distinctions between these two species, at least in the sense of European authors.
