Little Coprinus mushroom pictures

Coprinus cinereus (renamed Coprinopsis cinerea) growing in the lab. The genome was sequenced, assembled into chromosomes, and annotated and we are working on the final analysis of it to describe some of the interesting biology about this little Coprophilic fungus. I’m excited to put up a few of my pictures of the tiny mushrooms growing in the lab (although others have better ones). A few more days and I might have better shots.

Update: Chris Ellison in the Taylor Lab sent this post from Cornell Mushroom Blog which has a video of Coprinus comatus (shaggy mane) fungi deliquescing.
