granules aside,

these have a heft to them which doesn’t seem consistent with C. micaceus, particularly in the width of the stem; one more characteristic — in addition to those CureCat has pointed out — which is more common to Coprinopsis than Coprinellus.

These did not have the granules. Not certain if they always have to. There is a dead maple stump at my work that gets them at least 5 or 6 times a month. I see them come up all the time and sometimes they have them and sometimes they dont. Prehaps I am seeing 2 differnt species but they look the same except for the granules. I guess next year I will need to get my scope out and do a little more research and see the spores.

Were there any mica-like granules on the pileus?? Not positive, but these remind me more of Coprinopsis than Coprinellus. Especially near the base of the stems it appears that there is an abrupt notch where the cap pulls away from the stipe, and I see that really pronounced with Coprinopsis, but less so in Coprinellus.
