I think I learn at least one new thing from you every other day. Since I found this specimen last Sept. I have been calling it Coprinus domesticus. After reading Lincoff’s discussion, I entered my observation as Coprinellus radians; and, before I could close the book, you updated me even further. How on Earth do you stay up to date on everything??? Thanks so much, again and again and again:)

At least 3 or 4 species
