Sorry. Species confused, I thought you asked me the difference between comatus and sterquilinus.

Coprinus spadiceisporus is fimicola, small size and its spores are slightly mitriformes, and brown.

The major differences are three: The habitat, as spore, and the color because white is always more than sterquilinus comatus, and plus beards are lower.
Right now we’re testing these two molecular species, and genetic difference is minimal …. to the point that even they can be considered separate species …. as much a variety …..

how can we attempt to decide between these two species?

Coprinus spadiceisporus??

uffff …. complicated.

It presents the typical beard to be C. comatus. And do not say whether it appeared in feces, to be C. sterquilinus. It seems small, and very ball. Coprinus spadiceisporus could be, it is worth again ….
