Description

Parasola plicatilis.Commonly referred to as the Pleated Inkcap, and sometimes as the Little Japanese Umbrella, Parasola (formerly Coprinus) plicatilis is a very delicate member of the inkcap group of fungi. It occurs in short grass.This is one of the many short-lived grassland fungi that appear overnight following rain; the fruitbodies develop, expand, shed their spores and decay within 24 hours and by the next morning there is usually no evidence of them ever having existed.The genus Parasola is considered a fairly homogeneous group of mushrooms, with a small umbrella-like pileus, which is deeply plicate up to the centre. Their fruiting bodies are completely devoid of veil. They are common decomposers of different types of organic substrates (leaf-litter, wood, herbivore dung) and are distributed world-wide with most of the records being from Europe and North America, including scattered notes from Asia, Venezuela, Australia, Lesser Antilles and Africa.

Description

All the members of the family Meropidae are bee eaters. They contain 3 genera and 27 species. Bee eaters predominantly eat flying insects, specially bees and wasps. Before eating the stinging insect for example a bee, once caught, the bee eater removes the sting by repeatedly hitting and rubbing the insect on a hard surface.
There are 6 bee eater species in southeast asia and in Malaysia 4 species have been found:
The red bearded bee eater ( Nyctyornis amictus )
Blue throated bee eater
( Merops virids )
Blue tailed bee eater
( Merpos philippinus )
Chestnut headed bee eater
( Merops leschenaulti )
The 3 last bee eaters are from the family Meropidae. They all have colorful plumage. On very rare occasions they have been seen to eat lizards and fish small enough for their size. But depend on bees mostly and other flying insects. They catch the insect when they are flying by the wings.
