Coprinus sterquilinus Alan? I am unsure of differentiating criteria so some good opinions would be great.

Similar to a shaggy mane. Midwest hardwood forest with weedy and grassy areas in Conservation Area also has some cow manure. Wet today. I’ve eaten several of these. Taste is mild, nothing distinctive if all white. Not as tasty as a shaggy mane or quite as delicate.
