    No it's not the name of a stripper, but I suppose it could be. Nor is it anything related to pipe smoking. But I thought it was an interesting mushroom or toadstool or what ever. It is not a flower though. I've never seen one before, but while out walking I noticed a few around underneath a tree. This one was about the size of a quarter which was the average size of most of them. Any ideas of what they are?

    Is it's given name "lacy shroom?" It looks more corrugated to me. Great picture.

    piper64: Thanks for sending me on the right track. I would never have thought to call it a fairy umbrella, but that is indeed what it is. I just called it a lacy shroom for lack of a better way to describe it. Boy, there are a lot of varieties of these things!

    Oh and thanks Cosmic!

    I don't have my reference books on hand but at a glance I would place this in the family Psathyrellaceae. Recently there has been a lot of taxonomic revision of this family so I hesitate to even suggest a genus. These fruiting bodies don't last long. Probably if you go back all you'll find is a bit of black goop.
