Shaggy Mane Mushrooms
Originally classified as Agaricus comatus in 1780 by Danish biologist Otto Muller. The Shaggy Mane mushroom has since been reclassified as Coprinus due to it’s inky cap. This “inky” appearance is due to the mushroom auto-digesting. As a result, the Shaggy Mane mushroom should be eaten within a few hours after harvest.
