Parasola plicatilis – Pleated inkcap

Synonyms: Agaricus plicatilis, Coprinus plicatilis.

Common name: pleated inkcap.

Russian name: Navoznik skladchatyy.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Parasola plicatilis is a small saprotrophic mushroom with a plicate cap (diameter up to 35 mm). It is a widely distributed species in Europe and North America. This ink cap species is a decomposer which can be found in grassy areas, alone, scattered or in small groups. The fruiting bodies grow at night after rain, and will self decompose after spore dispersion is achieved. Otherwise, they are quickly dried up in morning sunlight, or will eventually collapse beneath the weight of their caps.
