Does anyone know of the best way….

To find out if a mushroom has been recorded in a state or area?

I use PNW Matchmaker and MO of course, but I am trying to find out if C. truncorum has been found here or not.

Also, it should be noted that early DNA results in 2001 suggest a possibility that C. truncorum and C. micaceus may be the same species.

Very true….

But according to data for my area, this is the only one we have that I know of. It is our most common Coprinoid.

Coprinellus sec. Micacei.

ok, then we can say that it belongs to the section MIcacei. But only with such data can not ensure it is exactly Coprinellus micaceus. There are more species in that group, such as C. sacharinus, truncorum, pallidisimus ……

Based on that you have to say that is exactly Coprinellus micaceus? .. Best regards.
