California Fungi—Coprinus comatus Coprinus comatus
(Photo: © Fred Stevens)

Coprinus comatus (O. F. Müll.:Fr.) Pers.
Tentamen Disp. Meth Fungorum: 62. 1797.

Common Name: shaggy mane

  • Pileus

    Cap 5-14 cm tall, 2.5-4.5 cm broad, columnar, becoming bell-shaped; surface dry, white with a brown central disc, breaking up into coarse, white and brown, recurved scales; flesh thin, white, and soft; odor and taste mild.

  • Lamellae

    Gills adnexed to free, crowded, white, becoming pink, then deliquescing from the margin into a black, inky liquid.

  • Stipe

    Stipe 8-20 cm long, 1-1.5 cm thick, white, smooth, hollow, equal to bulbous at base, veil white, membranous, usually sliding to the bottom of the stipe.

  • Spores

    Spores 12-16 x 7-8 µm, smooth, elliptical with an apical pore; spore print black.

  • Habitat

    Scattered, grouped, or in dense clusters on disturbed ground or grassy areas; found frequently along roadsides, paths and in playing fields; fruiting any month of the year when moisture is available but most abundant soon after the fall rains.

  • Edibility

    Edible Edible and choice, but must be cooked quickly before the caps turn to ink.

  • Comments

    With its distinctive columnar, shaggy cap which dissolves into ink at maturity, Coprinus comatus is one of the easiest of all mushrooms to recognize. Coprinopsis atramentaria , another inky cap, is somewhat similar, but has a smooth to fibrillose, not scaly cap surface, and lacks the elongated cap shape of C. comatus .
