Hello Byrain.

Within the section Miceai (veiled species formed by cells spherocytic therefore can not form flakes as in Section Domestici), we find: 1º - with setulas in the foot, mitriformes spores, few pleurocistidios and overall color red= Coprinellus micaceus and rufopruinatus. 2º - with setulas in the foot, truncated ovoid spores, many colors and numerous pleurocistidios = Coprinellius pallidisimus. 3º – without setulas in the foot, brown colours, espores truncates = Coprinellus truncorum . 4º – without setulas in the foot, but mitriformes spores and white veil =

C. saccharinus.

I must say this is nthe European species. Bogart described it there in North America some species of this group, but and although the public Bogart invalid … I’m so convinced that your “Micaei” are different from Europeans.

What other species are in this group and what methods can be used to tell them apart? Thanks.

The veil is clearly visible in granules general mice. You fasciculate growth and many copies Micacei section is proper. But we are as in the previous case, we need to see the spores to ensure a species. Although the most likely to be C. micaeus, being the most frequent in the group.
