Lepiota Procera Scopoli

Lepiota Procera Scopoli

  • $20.00


This print comes form the book, "Report of the Microscopist, U.S. Department of Agriculture, 1892".

"The parasol mushroom (Macrolepiota procera or Lepiota procera) is a basidiomycete fungus with a large, prominent fruiting body resembling a parasol. It is a fairly common species on well-drained soils. It is found solitary or in groups and fairy rings in pastures and occasionally in woodland. Globally, it is widespread in temperate regions." - Wikipedia

"The height and cap diameter of a mature specimen may both reach 40 cm, a size truly impressive for the fruiting body of an agaric. The stipe is relatively thin and reaches full height before the cap has expanded. The stipe is very fibrous in texture which renders it inedible. The surface is characteristically wrapped in a snakeskin-like pattern of scaly growths (therefore, known in some parts of Europe as the "snake's hat" or "snake's sponge"). The immature cap is compact and egg-shaped, with the cap margin around the stipe, sealing a chamber inside the cap. As it matures, the margin breaks off, leaving a fleshy, movable ring around the stipe. At full maturity, the cap is more or less flat, with a chocolate-brown umbo in the centre that is leathery to touch. Dark and cap-coloured flakes remain on the upper surface of the cap and can be removed easily. The gills are crowded, free, and white with a pale pink tinge sometimes present. The spore print is white. It has a pleasant nutty smell. When sliced, the white flesh may turn a pale pink. " - Wikipedia

Your Print Options:

Poster Print

While this is our lowest priced print, it's still an excellent paper. Inkpress Matte 60 is a acid and lignin free paper. Bright white, and 10 mil. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting.

 

Rag Print

Inkpress Cool Rag 200 is a 100% cotton rag paper. This is an acid-free, 200gsm, 15 mil, with a smooth and bright matte finish. Excellent print quality at an excellent price. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting. This rag paper is better at dark, rich colors than the poster print.


Hahnemuehle Torchon Print

When you need something extra-special, we recommend Hahnemuehle's Torchon. This is a 100% alpha cellulose, 285gsm, textured watercolor paper that is acid-free. This offers superb image quality and is our favorite Hahnemuehle paper. Available in three sizes, all come with a 1" white border around the image for easier matting.

Canvas Print

Our maps are also available as cotton-poly blend canvas prints, ready to be gallery stretched. For the best presentation the edges on our canvasses are mirrored or have the paper color extended around the sides. Canvas prints receive a UV and surface protective coating. Additional canvas is left around the image to facilitate gallery stretching at your local frame shop. Available in two sizes.


Wall Tapestry Print

Especially well suited for long horizontal maps, the image is printed to the edge of the paper. Aluminum tension bars are placed on the top and bottom of the print for easy hanging with a clean, modern design. Bars are easily removable. This format comes in an 18", 24", and 36" wide version.


Fabric Wall Cling

Great for kids rooms or for versatile displays - these Terylene fabric clings are easily repositionable without causing wear or staining to the paint underneath even after long periods of time. Wall Cling images are printed to the edge and are available in three sizes.
