Hare's foot inkcap

Fungi: Basidiomycota: Agaricomycetes: Agaricales: Psathyrellaceae: Coprinopsis lagopus (Fr.) Redhead, Vilgalys & Moncalvo

Coprinopsis lagopus – hare's foot inkcap

Synonyms: Agaricus lagopus, Coprinus lagopus.

Common names: hare's foot inkcap, Woolly-stalked Coprinus.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Coprinopsis lagopus is a species of fungus in the family Psathyrellaceae. Until 2001, the species was known as Coprinus lagopus; advances in the understanding of phylogenetic relationships between the various coprinoid species led to a major reorganization of that genus. It is a delicate and short-lived fungus, the fruit bodies lasting only a few hours before dissolving into a black ink – a process called deliquescence. The vague resemblance of the young fruit body to the paw of a white rabbit has earned this species the common name harefoot mushroom.

Dutch: Hazenpootje (paddenstoel), Finnish: Jänönmustesieni, German: Hasenpfote (Pilz), Hungarian: Gatyás tintagomba, Lithuanian: Ilgakotis mėšlagrybis, Polish: Czernidłak srokaty, Romanian: Bălegar pufos, Russian: Навозник пушистый, Swedish: Dunbläcksvamp.
