Shaggy ink cap Bläcksvamp

I found this outside my house recently.
It’s a funny fungus. First it is all a white beauty, then it transform to a ink colored beauty and in the end it explode and leave the ink on the ground.

Just look at this:

from wikipedia:

Coprinus comatus, the shaggy ink cap, lawyer’s wig, or shaggy mane, is a common fungus often seen growing on lawns, along gravel roads and waste areas.

  1. I was going to ask if they were edible. I guess when they ink up the toxins take over. Interesting, I wonder if they can use the ink for a die?

    1. Interesting question. I have no idea if the ink is useable 🙂 They’re edible as long as they are white. Never eaten them, so I don’t know if they taste good.

  2. The lawyers’ wigs are left from a time when all the men at court wore wigs. At some point they modernized them a little, making them smaller and, I guess, less uncomfortable, but ever sillier looking. Why they can’t just get rid of them I don’t know, but Britain does love its traditions–especially the bizarre ones.
