These spores don’t really look anything like Coprinopsis spores. Although the ’shrooms there do, either that or Parasola. The spores should be dark grey, thick walled, with a germ pore. These are too small perhaps and brown to light brown. Are you sure the spores match the photos of the ’shrooms?

How did you prepare the slide? I wonder how all those spores got pinched and collapsed like that.
