Observation 24325: Coprinopsis subsect. Lanatuli (J. Lange) D.J. Schafer ined.
When: 2009-06-10
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found in mixed hardwoods growing from old dead log. This is the only one I’ve seen, almost looks more like a wildflower than it does a mushroom. Cap is maybe 1" across, stem 4-5" tall.

[admin – Sat Aug 14 01:58:46 +0000 2010]: Changed location name from ‘Boone Co., (Central) Missouri, USA’ to ‘Boone Co., Missouri, USA

It was previously placed in Coprinus.
-3% (2)
Recognized by sight: Just a suggestion, based on the growth on wood remnants and cob-webby veil, impossible to ID properly without microscopy (on younger material)
This one does probably belong to the subsection Lanatuli (plicatilis doesn’t).

I’d change the consensus to Coprinopsis subsect. Lanatuli if possible. The stipe shows a very hairy surface and prominent velum on the pileus, which are not in accord with C. krieglsteineri. I will add a properly identified observation of this species tonight or later this week. This particular specimen appears more likely to be C. lagopus

All the best,


*EDIT: Here is my observation of C. krieglsteineri for comparisson: http://mushroomobserver.org/262114?q=UJ6

Leucocoprinus fragilissimus is a yellow mushroom with white spores. This photo shows a white mushroom, and though i don’t see distinct black spores, the stature is that of a developing species in the group of Coprinopsis lagopus.
