Deeply sulcate

Found another patch of Glistening Inkcap type things today, close to the patch I found yesterday.

These ones were still showing nicely the glistening mica-like scales and deeply grooved, or "sulcate", pattern of the cap which are typical of Glistening Inkcap (Coprinellus micaceus).

I had another look to see if the stems appeared "downy", which would suggest C. truncorum. Can't say they looked particularly downy, but then I don't know how downy C. truncorum is supposed to look.
