Common Inkcap

Common Inkcap

This fungus has an egg-shaped, grey to grey-brown cap with a red-brown centre. The cap surface is smooth and ridged and the stem is silvery white and has a hollow centre. The cap gradually becomes inky-black and dissolves with age. Although edible, this fungus should never be eaten with alcohol of any form, even cosmetic preparations as the fungus reacts with alcohol even when it enters the bloodstream days after eating the mushroom. It can cause palpitations and sickness.
