Also in the options there are three criteria that are equally accurate.

Family: Psathyrellaceae. right. genre: Coprinellus sp. right. Species: Coprinellus truncorum. Right. The three options are equally valid.

Hello Zaca.

My opinion was before seeing the spores. After seeing the spores I can say something more precise.

Then your vote is not accordingly with the words …
Thanks, for your opinion.

These spores are very typical of the species and give it its name. It is certainly Coprinellus truncorum.

Data from microscopy added.

Due to deliquescence was difficult to make a preparation. I didn’t observe any caulocystidia. The spores have a peculiar shape, being truncated on one of the ends. I got the following average dimensions:
Me = 9.5 × 6.6 µm ; Qe = 1.4 (N=45).

caulocystidia are lacking, this might be Coprinellus truncorum.
