You can call it either 'Coprinellus sect. Micacei', or 'Coprinellus aff. disseminatus'. The taxonomic addition 'aff' stand for 'affinis', or 'closely related to'.

Hmm then Michael, what do I call it !?

Lovely Coprinelllus sect. Micacei, meaning it is in a section of Coprinellus with species that resemble C. micaceus and C. disseminatus. This particular species is probably closer to C. disseminatus.
