Forest floor mushrooms (a photo from the Boing Boing Flickr Pool)




Looks like shaggy ink cap (Coprinus comatus). The base of the cap dissolves into an inky fluid, giving it it’s name. They’re edible, and quite tasty.


Coprinus are cool! Besides being delicious and turning into black liquid, some types contain natural “Antabuse” drug. Eat those and you won’t be able to touch alcohol for days (nausea etc.)
