Perhaps Ron, there is an other possibility which may be a vacant niche which 
these chaps are occupying; ie a lack of competitive exclusion. 

If Coprinus spp. are saprophytic secondary colonisers what are they doing 
colonising the stem base and structural roots of living trees? Why is a 
primary coloniser not found? Have things skipped a successional stage? Is 
this a recent development? What are the predisposing factors? What range of 
tree species are affected? What is the geographic distribution? To me these 
appear to be the questions of interest.

If this is a relatively recent development it may indicate that a restricted 
rooting environment is not the causal factor, although it may be contributory.

That's the conundrum Dom. Whereas Coprinus are saprphytic, secondary 
colonisers, on dead wood and roots, you can never be sure how much decay has 
occurred prior to their colonisation. As you say, quite often found around 
Sorbus and cherry but probably because those trees are so often growing in 
verge areas and surrounded by hard surfaces.

I have seen these associated with the failure (extensive structural root 
decay) and decay (structural roots and stem) of living trees recently; Sorbus 
and Betula respectively. I think another UKTCer saw something similar around 
a poplar recently.

DL:  It certainly looks like a Coprinus sp. Some Coprinus spp., like C. 
micaceus, grow on dead stumps but do not cause primary decay in standing 
trees.

Probably Coprinus micaceus.
