No specimen available

Growing on a pile of wood pieces and tree leaves; Same place than observation 224024 and of my other observations in coprinoid mushrooms since then.

The veil remnants thought scarse look like fragments of toasted almonds.

From the paper of MYKOLA P. PRYDIUK:
“Spores 9.5–14.5 × 6.5–9.0 × 6.0–7.5 μm, Q = 1.3–1.83, av. L = 12.1 ± 0.97 μm, av. B = 7.8 ± 0.79 μm, av. Q = 1.57 ± 0.12; flattened, ovoid, ovoid-ellipsoid or widely-ellipsoid with rounded basis and apex in frontal view, ellipsoid in lateral view, germ pore eccentric, 1.5–1.8 μm wide, dark red-brown.

The species can be fairly easily identified due to the presence of a granular veil consisting of globose thick-walled brownish cells as well as capitate pileo– and caulocystidia."

These specimen grew some centimeters aside from that considered in observation 227860. The microscopic features are identical and the conclusions reached there also apply (see the comments of that observation).
