Leucoprinus Birnbaumii

Leucoprinus Birnbaumii

The official name according to wikipedia is Leucocoprinus Birnbaumii, although you might also find the latin name of Lepiota lutea — none of which can compare to suggested common names such as “plantpot dapperling”, “yellow parasol”, “flowerpot parasol”, “yellow houseplant mushroom”, “lemon-yellow lepiota”, or “yellow pleated parasol”.

We find this fungus from time to time growing in one of the planters by our entrance, apparently they often grow in flower pots or are introduced through potting mix. The difference between the two pictures is one day, and after one more day it was all finished.
