Description

BIO115_001

Growing on soil under a Magnolia tree. The proximity of the mushrooms to the tree indicates they may have been parasitizing it. The season is winter and the rainfall is heavy. The area is well-shaded by the tree and the surrounding dorm building. The tree and mushrooms are growing in a large planter.

Older specimens turn translucent brown and fall apart easily, their final stage being a sticky or dried black goop on the ground. Specimens release black inky material if they are picked. The gills are free and brown, with a black spore print. The cap is brown in the middle, grading to white and then gray at the ends. The stalk is around 0.5cm thick and white. The mushrooms are 7-10mm high.

Description from Wikipedia

Coprinellus micaceus is a common species of fungus in the family Psathyrellaceae with a cosmopolitan distribution. The fruit bodies of the saprobe typically grow in clusters on or near rotting hardwood tree stumps or underground tree roots. Depending on their stage of development, the tawny-brown mushroom caps may range in shape from oval to bell-shaped to convex, and reach diameters up to 3 cm (1.2 in).
