Coprinopsis lagopus
These fungi were spotted when I walked around my village. There were afew coconut trees were being chopped down.
Then I realised a few fungi grew on the trunks.

Thanks to Laszlo for the ID and notes.
Coprinopsis lagopus is a species of fungus in the Psathyrellaceae family of mushrooms. Until 2001, this species was known as Coprinus lagopus; advances in the understanding of phylogenetic relationships between the various species led to a major reorganization of that genus. It is a delicate and short-lived fungi, the fruiting bodies lasting only a few hours before dissolving into a black ink – a process called deliquescence. The vague resemblance of the young fruiting body to the paw of a white rabbit has earned this species the common name Harefoot mushroom.
C. lagopus grows solitary or in groups on wood chips, compost heaps, vegetable refuse, or horse dung, from autumn to mid-winter. It has a widespread distribution throughout the world.

Hello Foozi,
Excellent capture of these fungi growing on a Coconut Palm, not exactly what I associate with fungi! Very fine details and colours and well composed. To me they look like some sort of Ink Cup fungi.
TFS and regards, Ulla

An amazing shot, Foozi!
I love the beautiful BG and the contrasting subject!

hello Foozi
great composition with very good details and beautiful light and colour
greeting lou

Hi Foozi,

good presentation from this fungi,
Fine colours.


Hola Foozi:

I like the photo you've made these mushrooms. I like going to the forest to pick mushrooms, edible but also know the identity of these as they appear so fragile.

Best regards

Hi Foozi,

I don't know much about fungi but I wouldn't expect to see them on a coconut palm tree! A wonderful macro of these five - interesting to see the one which is drooping. Beautiful colors and fine details and excellent contrast against the tree trunk.


Hi again,

Wonderful composition with a bunch of inkcaps. Excellent exposure and light management, sharpness and as mentioned compo is second to none. Absolutely great photo, congrats.

Not You are the only one who doesn't know the ID this time. This is for sure an inkcap, something from the following generas: Coprinus, Coprinellus, Coprinopsis or Parasola, but for identifying inkcap species correctly microscopical analysis is a must, with a very few exceptions. Your specimens remind me to Coprinopsis lagopus a bit, but of course I can't be sure at all, just a tip.

Tfs, have a nice Sunday, László

Hello Foozi
What a nice shot, superb composition with the white stem of the fungies, her silvery hat against the dark BG, each detail are verry welol reproduced
Have a great sunday

Hi Foozi,
This is a very good image indeed!
Brilliant exposure and sharpness.
I thin Laszlos guess of Coprinus lagopus for the ID sounds about right.
These do look very much like them.
Nice capture!

Hello Foozi,

I like the scenario - four standing, one down!
The situation is well framed with excellent details, pin sharp in fact...
A creative composition with intriguing lines!
