Fungus | Ink Cap | Tipler’s Bane

Many of these Ink Cap (Coprinopsis atramentaria) are popping up in the neighborhood. Note the small one in the back. Later in their life they look like those in the front, especially after a light rain. From the wikipedia article:

The flesh is thin and the taste mild. It can be eaten but is poisonous when consumed with alcohol – hence another common name, tippler’s bane.
