Coprinus micaceus
Coprinus micaceus
The Micaceous (or glistening) Ink Cap (Coprinus micaceus) is a common member of the Ink Cap genus. They are named for the glittering tiny scales, like minuscule pieces of the silicaceous mineral mica, with which their caps are dusted. The technical term for this kind of powdery dusting is "pruinose".
These fruiting bodies were on the same rotting log as SP9208 : Coprinus - deliquescing.
