COPRINUS SUBSECTION DOMESTICI - Back to top

Basidiocarps medium-sized, somewhat fleshy, pale ochre to ochre; stipe 3-10 mm wide; veil covering entire pileus when young, breaking up of small, woolly flocks (in C. bipellis in patches), microscopically of chains of cylindrical, ellipsoid, broadly fusiform or (sub)globose, hyalin, thin-walled and in part thick-walled and yellow-brown cells; terminal cells distinct, cylindrical, ellipsoid, ovoid or fusiform; pileus subglobose to ovoid, only tardily expanding to campanulate (subsect. Domestici Sing.).

COPRINUS SUBSECTION MICACEI - Back to top

Basidiocarps medium-sized, somewhat fleshy, pale ochre, rust or cinnamon; stipe 3-10 mm wide; veil made up of very small, scattered, granular flocks, not covering entire pileus when young, microscopically of (sub)globose, hyalin, thin-walled cells, not in chains; pileus subglobose to ovoid, only tardily expanding to campanulate (subsect. Micacei (Fr.) Uljé & Noordel.).

COPRINUS SUBSECTION ATRAMENTARII - Back to top

Pileus medium-sized, 30-80 x 20-60 mm, ochre-brown, grey-brown or grey, squamulose only at centre, often seemingly smooth. Growing fasciculate, on wood, trunks or wood-chips. Spores < 10 µm long when smooth, if larger then spores warty (subsect. Atramentarii (Fr.) Konr. & Maubl.).

COPRINUS SUBSECTION ALACHUANI - Back to top

Basidiocarps very small to medium-sized; expanded pileus 6-60 mm. Pileus with veil made up of weakly to strongly diverticulate, and then often thick-walled elements. Stipe smooth, but in most cases covered with very small velar flocks, especially at base (subsect. Alachuani Sing.).
