    thats so true John, even I pass off about 5 mushrooms as coprinellus micaceus I really need to tune up my skills on the genus, but finding good information, that is up to date is often hard for me :(
    On another note, john, how does it feel to be a newbie? :bowR: Look, I'm a Mycologist! :dance1: :aweshift:

    them shrooms are looong gone. i feel that C. micaceus is a safe and reasonable name to give to them though.

    we could say C. micaceus or something closely related or something very similar?

    I probably shouldn't use big words, especially psuedo-latin, I barely understand most of them.
    I stole the ameri- from Bob Zimmer/Herb baker. I apply it liberally to anything found in america :usa:
    The phrase "nom. prov." is an abbreviation for the term nomem provisorium which means, "a provisional name or a name that may be changed in the future.
    and sensu-auct. means "in the sense of" and "authors" respectively and lato means "broad".... so
    coprinellus amerimicaceus nom. prov. sensu-auct lato means
    an american coprinellus micaceus in the sense of authors broadly, that may be changed in the future. Pretty fantastical nonsensory, huh? That's how I do:aweshift:

    When I picked the mushrooms the stems were not hairy at all. The stem was leaning towards the opposite if I remember correctly. We had just had a series of rain showers and when I picked them the stems still seemed slick, and "slimy" if that is the right adjective to use. The stem was also very fragile, and solid in color. That's all I can remember about them.

    C. micaceus can have finely hairy to smooth stems. the hairiness could have been washed off in the rain or been rubbed off when you picked them. Coprinellus truncorum is a smooth stem version of C. micaceus that also supposedly has slightly more eliptical spores but its still not proven that they are separate species

    You can't hotlink pics from shroomery (they don't allow it)... all we see is the shroomery icon (you'll see it b/c it's in your cache).

    :welcome: John.

    Thanks for the keys! Those are a big help. It's funny, I went outside to almost the same spot a few minutes ago to go see if any new mushrooms popped up since there has been a lot of rain. Look what I found.:mushroom:

    That makes sense, especially since those are known to pop up after rains in early summer.
