Observation 19628: Coprinus Pers.

This was an interesting specimen – it looks like C. comatus, but with a shaggy stipe, also I have never seen that species in a bonafide prairie/meadow (usually in lawn grass or woodchips/mulch).

Studying these specimens

If it were possible in the future, would be nice to check the spore size. If the spores came up to 18-20 microns, and have central germ pore, it would be possible that it was coloseus Coprinus, which I believe, only known original, the description of Van de Bogart.

Good luck

the singles specimen was rather large – I will be on the lookout for it again.
It was really striking.

Ufffff ….. is a very interesting example. Morphologically not correspond to any kind of Coprinus sensu stric. at present.

You could say that these specimens had length? .. It’s very, very interesting.
