These mushrooms grow scattered, grouped, or in dense clusters on disturbed ground or grassy areas. The shaggy mane mushroom (Coprinus comatus) can appear in unbelievable quantities with hundreds of mushrooms arising and disintegrating over a period of weeks every year.
If you're going to eat wild mushrooms remember... there's no room for lack of knowledge or carelessness. Good old-fashioned common sense is very critical.
Even though this writer relishes wild species of mushrooms, I am quite satisfied to dine on the "store-bought" varieties.
