Fungi Journal

One of the fungi I observed in mount-royal was Coprinellus. It is a genus of fungi that form mushrooms and it is in the family Psathyrellaceae.

The Psathyrellaceae family is known for the phenomenon called deliquescence. The fruiting body of these fungi will become a blackish inky ooze by autodigestion of the cells of the fruiting body when maturation. Within the Psathyrellaceae family, most of the species that undergo autodigestion are in the Coprinaceae genus.

Coprinellus often live in areas that are wet and rich in nitrogen, for example, muck soils, dung, wet soft decayed wood, lawns garden soils.
