Shaggy Ink Caps, also known as Shaggy Caps or Lawyer’s Wigs (Coprinus comatus). These are a commonly occurring fungus in the UK and are edible. They are best eaten before the conical enclosed cap of the newly emerged fungus has opened up. The cap expands from below. The gills change colour progressively from white, to pink, then black, prior to auto-digesting (they seem to turn to black ink that falls away from the aging cap. These specimens were among many clusters that were growing in the grass around the base of a tree at Kingston Maurward near Dorchester in Dorset, 15 October 2021.
