Coprinus Comatus spore prints are the perfect way to store spores for longer periods of time. There are more spores in a mushroom spore print than a spore syringe. However, we highly recommend you purchase our spore syringes or liquid culture syringes if you are inexperienced.

Coprinus Comatus Spore Print

Coprinus Comatus spore prints are offered for experienced mycologists. Spore prints are extremely hard to handle without contamination. We recommend our syringes for safer storage. 

How are spore prints made?

  • To take a spore print, cut the stem off a mushroom and place the cap gills-down on a piece of foil, paper, or an index card.
  • Add a drop of water to help release the spores, then cover with another object like a paper cup or glass.
  • Leave for 2-24 hours to allow spores to fall and create a spore print pattern.
  • Be sure your work environment is completely sterile and free of contaminants.

Shaggy Mane Mushrooms

Originally classified as Agaricus comatus in 1780 by Danish biologist Otto Muller. The Shaggy Mane mushroom has since been reclassified as Coprinus due to it’s inky cap. This “inky” appearance is due to the mushroom auto-digesting. As a result, the Shaggy Mane mushroom should be consumed within a few hours of harvesting.
