California Fungi—Coprinellus micaceus Coprinellus micaceus
(Photo: © Taylor F. Lockwood)

Coprinellus micaceus (Bull.) Vilgalys, Hopple, & Johnson
Taxon 50(1): 234. 2001.

Photo: Young sporocarps

Common Name: mica cap

Synonym: Coprinus micaceus (Bull.) Fr.

  • Pileus

    Cap 2-5 cm broad, cylindrical to oval, becoming conic, finally campanulate; yellow-brown, conspicuously striate to corrugate, covered with evanescent glistening granules; margin becoming torn, sometimes upturned in age, deliquescing towards the center; flesh thin, soft, white.

  • Lamellae

    Gills notched, close, white turning pinkish, finally black.

  • Stipe

    Stipe 1.5-5 cm long, 2-5 mm thick, white, hollow, equal; veil absent.

  • Spores

    Spores 7.5-10 x 3-5 µm, elliptical, smooth with an apical germ pore. Spore print black.

  • Habitat

    Typically fruiting in cespitose clusters near stumps or rotting wood, from fall through spring.

  • Edibility

    Edible Edible, of good flavor, but little texture.

  • Comments

    Coprinellus micaceus gets its common name from the glistening particles that cover the young, developing caps. These soon wash or wear off. However, it is still easily recognized by the yellow-brown caps, clustered fruiting habit, deliquescing gills, and tendency to fruit near rotting wood. Coprinopsis atramentarius is a larger mushroom, which also tends to fruit in clusters, but it has a silky grey-brown cap.
