Coprinaceae: The Dung Mushroom Family
The Dung Mushrooms get their name from the association of some species with manure. The mushrooms help break down manure and recycle the nutrients back to the earth. All members of the family have black to purplish-brown spores. They have cone-like caps and most are quite fragile.
