Leucocoprinus fragilissimus

This tiny, ephemeral lepiotoid mushroom looks like an umbrella for a mixed drink--but its stem is so long and fragile that it collapses within a few hours. In fact the species is so fragile that its cap also collapses, and often begins to dissolve. Look for Leucocoprinus fragilissimus in the southeastern United States, in summer.
