Coprinopsis lagopus – popping up form a heap of wood chippings in town. These fruiting bodies (aka: mushrooms) last only a few hours before dissolving into a black ink. The vague resemblance of the young fruit body to the paw of a white rabbit has apparently earned this species it’s common name. Anyway, eye-catching.
On a bit of a fungus thing at the moment – spent a happy couple of hours in the Arboretum with 25+ species of fungi waving their reproductive organs at us. These are very small and delicate and we just love the common name.
