Description

For more information on the habitat, vegetation, and weather of Money Creek, the area in which this species was found, please see the journal entry for May 12, 2012 here on iNaturalist. This inky cap was found growing in a shady area under some western red cedars behind the decomposing log on which the oyster mushroom was found at Money Creek. It is a very common fungus here in North America and is one of the edible species, though it is poisonous when taken with alcohol. The mushrooms often grow in disturbed areas and appear in late spring to early summer. The cap will eventually flatten out and then melt.
