We saw this interesting mushroom off of the trail at Lily Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park in August. It was about 8″ tall and a whitish color.

Does anyone have any idea what kind of mushroom it is? I couldn’t find it in any of my books. It was really cool looking!

    Fascinating mushroom, Mel. First thought was that it might have been “Agarikon”, as it
    made me think of a nest, but it does not fit that description. Looking forward to learning
    its name once you have been able to identify it.

    My friend Kimberly forwarded this to me asking if I knew (I forage in Maine) and I am inclined to say it is the Shaggy Mane, Coprinus comatus mushroom. Difficult to know for sure with all of the unknowns about the mushroom itself. What do you think?

    Wow! I just went on the web and it does look like a Shaggy Mane, Coprinus comatus mushroom. As I learned it is hard to tell without looking at the underside but the upper side looks like it. Mel
