Timelapse footage of the growth of a magpie fungus (Coprinopsis picacea). This is a type of inkcap, a mushroom that disperses its spores in a dark inky liquid formed by deliquescence of its cap. This is seen at the end of the clip. The magpie fungus is common throughout the UK. It is poisonous, and may be confused with the edible shaggy inkcap (Coprinus comatus). Cropped from 4288x2848 pixels. See clip K003 5189 for a version with aspect ratio 4:3.
