Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Thank you for your comment, Flaxton. I am assuming that in this young specimen, the ring is still attached and therefor out of site, and similarly the shagginess of the scales as yet comparatively undeveloped, but I am open to suggestions as to which other Coprinus species this could be :-).
Perhaps Vheng has some more shots or details?
With C comatus unlike some other species the ring is visible from the time the cap edge breaks away from the stem as it has done in this case.
It could be C macrocephalus but as with the majority of Coprinus/Coprinellus/Coprinopsis/Parasola as they are now known a microscope is needed to look at the makeup of the veil and spores.
Many thanks for the info, I will certainly be looking more closely at Coprinus spp now!
