Coprinopsis cinerea is an edible mushroom commonly called the gray shag (US) or shaggy ink cap (UK). It is a dark-spored agaric and is a member of the family Psathyrellaceae.

Agarics are defined as having a cap with gills underneath and a distinct stalk. C. cinerea is an excellent model organism for the study of multicellular development in fungi as it is easy to grow in the laboratory and it completes its entire life cycle in 2 weeks. It has a black spore print and gills that liquefy, at least partially, as the mushroom matures. The resulting "ink" provides the common name for the ink caps, and can actually be used as writing ink.

The pileus (cap) changes size as it grows and matures from 2cm x 1.5cm closed, to 3.0cm open, and it changes shape from ellipsoid, expanding to convex and eventually plano-concave. At its center it is gray-brown, paler near the edge with a white/silvery veil. C. cinerea grows particularly well on dung and rotten vegetation and is commonly found all over the world.

The genome of C. cinerea strain okayama 7 was published in 2010. The genome is 36Mb in size on 13 chromosomes, with approximately 13,000 predicted protein-coding genes.
