Mushroom for Id 100909Jm2 : Attachments (1). 6 posts by 3 authors.
During Sar Pass Trek in Himachal on 11/5/07. I have only this picture.

a very nice foto indeed, but not enough info (underside, stem etc) to ID. Still will look in my books, when have a bit more time!

As I can see this mushroom is growing on dung so is coprophilous. This appears to be species of Coprinus. I will try if I can identify the species from the pic.

Yes it Coprinus belong to Coprinaceae family, black sporeprint, very delicate dung fungus.

…, although here also gills images are missing but fortunately annulus is visible and can be seen growing on dung so growing habit is known.
So this is most likely Panaeolus semiovatus (Bolbitiaceae)
I am saying this on basis of my experience also as this species is found growing on horse dung, i have posted its images earlier from Rohtang Pass.
