Apparently, there are many similar species, and I’m not even sure there was any dung in the substrate. Leaving it to the experts to id.

Excellent clarity

Thanks for the perfect pictures showing exact color patterns and texture differentials. Best I have seen of deconica cophrophila (? ident), of which pictures are usually grainy and distant. Thanks for microscopy as well.
