Mushroom Worlds #17

Fairy Inkcap Coprinus disseminatus

I managed to capture at least one of these tiny, delicate Fairy Inkcap (Coprinus disseminatus) shrooms before they all dissolved into an inky black goo on the side of the rotting tree stump they had sprung from. It is amazing what can happen within a few days in the natural world: Fruiting; spore release; dissolving. And how they change colour and form compared to my previous post.

November 2017, local wood, Staffordshire, England.

    1. Thank you, Ellen 🙂 I didn’t think I would have much time, but with work and the reduced daylight hours I am now reduced to weekends only.

    1. Thank you, Diana 🙂 Yes, it was very much on the edge. By the end of the day it would have probably been no more.
