Do you have any example to show on that? It would good to see what you mean there, here are some examples of spores from these species that I’ve seen:

Parasola auricoma : http://mushroomobserver.org/45571
Parasola leiocephala : http://mushroomobserver.org/50846
Coprinellus micaceus : http://mushroomobserver.org/45720

They are all shades of light to deep-deep grey. Along with the thick walls and germ pores of course…

While the coprinoid mushrooms have prints that are black in deposit, they are always suprisingly brown when I look at them under the scope.

The spores, look about right for Coprinopsis in terms of size and shape. But the color there, is something making those go brown? Coprinopsis spores should be dark grey under the scope, these seem too light.
