Coprinopsis picacea is a species of fungus in the Psathyrellaceae. It is commonly called magpie fungus. It is native to Britain. It was first described in 1785 by French mycologist Jean Baptiste François Pierre Bulliard in 1785 as Agaricus picaceus.
This poisonous species can sometimes be confused with the edible Coprinus comatus.
