Observation 204296: Coprinus comatus (O.F. Müll.) Pers.
When: 2015-05-12
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Large, fluffy capped specimens fruiting off the left side of 40th and Nob Hill Blvd. in Yakima, WA.

Elevation: 1500ft.

Temp: 56, raining heavily today and last evening.

Large flush transplanted to our backyard to promote spore dispersal. Final images are of a few of the transplanted FB’s once I dug a small hole and plugged the bulbous base into our lawn. Hopefully a successive flush will occur within the next few months at the new spot.

Pinkish red hues to the base of cap margin. Red juice on my left thumb visible- looked similar to the lactation from Mycena haematopus or sanguinea.
