Coprinopsis lagopus (hare's foot inkcap) is a widespread mushroom globally, found in a variety of habitats. It is an introduced species, not endemic to NZ.

Inkcaps have short lived fruiting bodies that rapidly decay in under 24 hours, into a black inky substance, hence their name.

This example was observed growing in a lawn in Witherlea, Blenheim.
