Leucoprinus bimbaumii IMG 5011 - This attractive fungus is often referred to as a 'Flower Pot Fungus' or 'Parasol Fungus'. The reason for the latter name is quite obvious, but it owes its other common name to the fact that it often sprouts from the soil of flower pots, particularly when the pot contains a commercially produced potting mix and / or peat moss.
