Ok, I am pretty sure these are Coprinus (or what ever the new genus should be). But I don’t know which one. The caps are nicely striate in an interesting pattern. So, I am hoping someone else has a good idea on these?

12/31/2007 – more sure now they are Psathyrella.

Can you say more…

Can you say more as to your reasons for your statements here, what are the features in this obs. that you are reacting to? This was a previous obs. in the same area (within 20-30 feet) of another one I found another year. Perhaps you can take a look at this obs.:

And see what you might think of that one? And should this obs. be called the same or different than that obs.?

It Coprinellus, but it is impossible to ensure a particular species.

Yeah, I’ve collected P. gracilis, among other Psathyrella which have a distinctly striate (often ridged) margin.

Seems bit large for C. disseminatus

I think it’s Coprinus disseminatus.
