Coprinellus xanthothrix

Synonym: Coprinus xanthothrix.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Coprinellus xanthothrix is a species of fungus in the family Psathyrellaceae. This species was isolated from a polyphenol-polluted site near an olive processing plant in Greece. Shown to have the enzymes laccase and manganese peroxidase, the fungus is able to decolorize the recalcitrant polymeric dye R-478. First described as Coprinus xanthothrix by the French mycologist Henri Romagnesi in 1941, it was later transferred to the genus Coprinellus in 2001.

Finnish: Himmimustesieni, Russian: Навозник домашний, Swedish: Mattbläcksvamp.
