Thank you for your comment. Photography is a passion as well, and fungi make perfect subjects. This is the first time I’ve observed this species of Coprinus. I was amazed by their beauty.

Very nice photography. The young forms are obviously not C. comatus, and there is much more color. It must be very interesting to see the deliquescent forms.
