surely, the only big differents, is the whiter stem. micaceus has a brownish stem and truncorum has a smooth white stem. the cap is almost identic. the spores (wich we can not check) or the stem distinguished it for us. ok sorry had suspected you would wanted to know the serbian name. because the spotting is from there. my mistake!

I do not know serbian...Hungarian"Csillámló tintagomba":)
In outward appearance very similar to micaceus...

the "mushroom" is common called --> Glistening Ink-cap (english) ; gladstelige glimmerinktzwam (dutch) ; Czernidłak błyszczący (polish) ; Weidentintling (german) i did not find the serbian name! For this mushroom was the taxonomy changed/prefferd - from coprinus to coprinellus. therefore coprinellus truncorum (but all 2 are right).
