warmer colors and ozonium

I find that Coprinellus, when young, generally have warmer tones than Coprinopsis, although it’s not always true. Also, specifically for this specimen, I see some orange ozonium in one of your photos, leading me to believe that it’s one of the “shag rug” species, such as C. domesticus or C. radians. MichelBeeckman would be a good person to add more.

I’m curious what characters you used to determine this collection was a Coprinellus?
