Coprinellus ellisii is a species of mushroom in the family Psathyrellaceae. Found in Europe, it was first described as Coprinus ellisii by Peter D. Orton in 1960,[1] and later transferred to the genus Coprinellus in 2001.[2] The specific epithet ellisii honours E.A. Ellis, who, according to Orton, was "the Norfolk naturalist and mycologist who collected this and who brought me many puzzling and apparently undescribed agarics."
