Coprinellus is a genus of fungi belonging to the Psathyrellaceae family. Saprotrophic ink cap mushrooms with thin plicate caps and dark-colored spores comprise the genus. They are also known as Coprinoid and go through deliquescence after spore dispersal, which causes the gills to liquefy into an inky black goo.
