Psathyrella longipes

You could probably guess that this solitary but attractive mushroom photographed at Rancho San Antonio preserve near Cupertino belonged to the ink cap family of mushrooms - and you would not be too far off.

It belongs to the Psathyrellaceae family of mushrooms of which the classical ink caps (Coprinus sp.) are related. Psathyrella however differs in that its fruiting body does not undergo autodigestion once spores mature like the typical ink caps.
