The Shaggy Mane (coprinus comatus) is found throughout North America. It tends to proliferate after a hard rain, often growing in large colonies. Delicate white scales cover its bullet shaped cap, giving it a hairy appearance. As the mushroom matures, the gills curl away from the stem, melting into black ink from the edge inward. The mushroom is most flavorful when consumed in the button stage, before the gills begin to curl up.
