We have multiple species in this section of Coprinellus and none of them the real C. micaceus.

Interesting -- yes I cropped out the stand of juvenile ones thinking they were a different species. I'll see if I can reverse that.

Thank you for the comment. What would be the taxonomic criteria I could check to further ascertain the identity of this weevil?

Posted by cback about 2 hours ago (Flag)
Thumb

The characters which most readily distinguish these two are:

The pterygia of the rostrum where the antennae are inserted (narrow and linear in A. granulata; wide and scoop-shaped in O. singularis)
The setation of the elytra (erect setae arising from the interstriae in A. granulata, decumbent setae arising from glabrous granules in O. singularis).
The orientation of the rostrum in lateral view (ventrally directed, with the ventral margin forming a right angle in lateral view in A. granulata; anteriorly directed, with the ventral margin being broadly curved in lateral view in O. singularis)

This observation of O. singularis shows the alternative states of these characters rather well.

Great many thanks! In the 70's I had to take the bus to the Biosystematics Institute in Ottawa with vials in my backpack to hope for such a feedback. I'm new to submitting observations in iNaturalist. How do I correct the identification?

Posted by cback about 2 hours ago (Flag)
Thumb

If you click on the downward chevron on your identification, a menu will appear with the option "Withdraw".

Alternatively (particularly if through further research you can independently verify it) you can click the "agree" button on my identification. This will make the observation "Research Grade", and therefore eligible for exporting to other databases like GBIF.

I think that iNaturalist has done a great job of democratising this sort of knowledge and facilitating these types of conversations. It's great that you're participating!

often GBIF or CoL will give an indication of range, but in this case only GBIF gives any clue and shows records (some are iNat ones) on a world map. Given that the map is zoomed to NZ, I think it's fair to say it is only found here!

maybe but it looks a bit odd, especially the one on the right. Mycena interrupta is generally on bare wood and arises from a minute bulb you can see in immature specimens. We would need to see the gills and some sense of scale but there's a chance this is something else, maybe Leucoagaricus.

P. colensoi is sometimes included in P. tenuifolium. P. ten. varies a lot, regionally, some with much smaller leaves than in other regions, and where P. colensoi occurs, the more 'typical' P. tenuifolium with its undulate leaves doesn't usually occur. In other words, it seems that P. colensoi is just one of the regional forms of P. ten.

I agree, Dave. Even in more temperate climate of Whanganui, S. smithii is a locally abundant weed - with S. paniculatum not too far behind. S. floribundum self-establishes only rarely here and I'm still waiting for someone to prove to me that S. australe self-establishes anywhere.

I'll post some pics I have of M. hypericifolia, from a cultivated plant in a local park. Done: https://inaturalist.nz/observations/74566465 . As you say, it has red flowers so might not be what you have. Did you (or can you) collect herbarium specimens? It would be good to get flowers to, though, but a collection of foliage, fruit and a bit of bark would be fine - then perhaps a flowering piece as a separate voucher, whenever.

Posted by dave_holland about 3 hours ago (Flag)

Comparing your plant with my just-posted pics of M. hypericifolia, I think the foliage is very similar. If flowers fall apart when you press material, just spread them between 2 paper tissues and press then anyway. They can then be sent to a herbarium with the main pressed piece(s), perhaps in an envelope so they don't get separated or lost in transit.
