They last less than 24 hours.

They sprout up at my farm.
When they first push up from the ground..they are a delicacy…when they open and form thier unique B/W pattern…they are poison…if you touch them they turn to liquid black ink on your fingers!

This is the Shaggy Mane mushroom(Coprenus comatus). Also called Shaggy Ink Cap, Lawyers Wig. Unusual because the mushroom will turn black and desolve itself in a matter of hours after depositing spores. In Australia this mushroom was featured on a postage stamp in 1981.
