Snowy Inkcap??

Post by MisterT » 07 May 2013, 21:14

Came across this fungi today on the machair. Not entirely sure but I think it may well be Coprinopsis nivea, commonly known as Snowy Inkcap, fruiting a little earlier than the literature I have suggests.

Thanks for the confirmation Chris.

It's good to know that a posative outcome with regards to ID can be achieved after a little research and delving through numerous field guides
