Anyone know Coprinus current coloseus collect?.

I think there is only original the description of Bogart, and never has been rediscovered. Would you know me?.

According to the type description of colosseus,


the lenght of the stem is about the double compared to the cap. The scales are small and easily removed on a mature cap, so it could hardly look so much like comatus as this one does. It’s not unusual to see a comatus of this size.

any Reason why

Coprinus colosseus was voted down ? what macro features prove it wrong?

nice find, Nadine! I’m leaning towards Johannes’ ID…your comatus is a monster!
