Observation 27630: Coprinopsis P. Karst.

When: 2009-10-31

Collection location: Southeast Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

I don’t really think this is a Coprinus as it is too tall, the gills have gone way beyond planar all the way to upraised, and does not show much signs of deliquescence. However, it does have characteristics similar to Coprinus, so possibly Coprinellus. Comes somewhat close to Coprinus plicatilus, but does not look like C. plicatilus I have seen in my own garden.

In the photo below, are the remains of the veil in the foot. This finding rules out Parasol and Coprinellus Coprinus.
