Description: Pileus: 24-24 mm; broadly ovoid to campanulate; surface smooth, sulcate, centre smooth; densely cpvered in white tufted, spikey velum, brownish in centre; pale ochraceus, dark reddish brown centre. Lamellae: Numerous, crowded, narrow, barely touching spite; smooth margin; pale brownto reddish brown, eventually black; deliquescent. Stipe: 60 × 3-6 mm; central, cilindrical, slightly tapering toward top, somewhat bulbous base; finely longitudinally striate, “sock” around the base, covered with fine hairs; white, slightly browner at base. Context: Firm, thin in pileus; brown in cortex interior and exterior of base and brown in interior of cortex of apex; hollow in entire stipe; longitudinally very finely fibrillose. Smell/Taste: Indistinct smell no taste recorded. Microscopy: - Spores: Cilindrical-ellipsoid to ellipsoid, sometimes with broader part on apex-side, rounded base, central germpore (+/- 2 micron); reddish brown, hyaline. - Measurements: (1000x, oil-immersion, H2O, 1 sd = 1,02 micron, n=10) av: 9,801 × 6,12 micron. stats: (8,16) 9,80 (11,22) x (5,10) 6,12 (6,63) micron. - Velum: Large globose inflated cells with thin attachment hyphae.
Ecology: Scattered solitary on disturbed clay, probably on burried wood, in broadleaf forest.
Nearly impossible to distinguish macroscopically from Coprinellus domesticus, at least to me. Herbarium specimens available, Herb.no: MHCB-16102806. References: - Knudsen & Vesterholt. (2008).

Hi Michel! Great documentation! We would like to feature this spotting but for this we would need individual images to fit our format. You can have a total of 6 images per spotting. A least one individual image of the whole mushroom would be great, like the one you have on the bottom right. Thanks in advance!
No, Interestingly not! Probably because they appeared to be growing directly from clay on a fairly disturbed habitat. The mycelium might not have had the time to form an ozonium or I simply didn't see it or it may even be a collection without ozonium, which is also possible.
Nice. No sign of ozonium?
