Could someone please identify this mushroom? Found in a garden situated in a mild Western European country.
Looks like shaggy ink cap, Coprinus comatus, to me.
Blacksmith37's answer suggests that shaggy mane is the usual common name. I hadn't heard that name until I looked at the Wikipedia page. In the U.K. it is shaggy ink cap, inkytop, inkhorn or lawyer's wig.
This is a good general source of information. Also comatus (Latin) means hairy.
I think the more common name is Shaggy Mane , related to "inkies" and "micas". It is too old to eat when it gets pink, then black liquid. In the Midwest US they come up early spring and fall in the same spots. .... Sorry,I meant to imply that was the name in the US. It is a good beginner mushroom ; hard to confuse with anything poison.
