The magpie inkcap fungus (Coprinopsis picacea) is an indicator for calcaerous soil and common in beech forests. Once the fruiting body is ripe, a process called autolysis dissolves the lamellae into a black liquid to release the spores. This liquid was used as ink in the past, giving the species its name.
