Parasola plicatilis  02609

Parasola plicatilis may be the most delicate and fragile appearing of the coprinoid Japanese Umbrella Mushrooms. The free gills are initially white but gradually turn black as the spores mature. The stipe of Parasola plicatilis differs from its close relatives in having a fibrillose rather than a perfectly smooth texture.
