I don’t think so Alan.

From Kuo’s webpage that you cited: “Coprinopsis romagnesiana is prominently decorated with brown to orangish brown scales.”

These fibrils are subtle at best, and also are present on the caps of the fbs shown on Kuo’s C. atramentaria webpage.

I have the fbs here, but not sure if spores will be a huge help … there is overlap in size:

Spores 8-13 × 5-6 µ; elliptical; smooth; with a central pore (C. rom).

Spores 6.5-10.5 × 4-6.5 µ; elliptical; smooth; with a central pore (C. atra).

Still, thanks for posting another possibility.
