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.

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.
