Artist's Description

Fungi that lives in my peastraw. When it rains up they pop….these are looking a little bedraggled after a hard time in the light of day.
Kind of looks like Dad, Mum and the kids…

An update: erincox, fellow redbubbler is a biological scientist and thinks they may be Coprinus fungi. Coprinus go black and gooey very quickly as they self digest as a way to transport their spores.
That makes sense as they do seem to behave in this manner. Thank you so much Erin.

Steve Axford, host of Fungilicious group here on RedBubble tells me they are probably Coprinopsis atramentaria (inky caps) and describes the way they act which sounds exactly like these. So thank you very much for that Steve.
