Indiginous mushrooms of Marshall Ave

Coprinus comatus (Shaggy Mane)
I thought these little guys might make a tasty butter-sauteed snack, but this warning from Michael Kuo made me think twice.
Suddenly appearing in people's lawns--in troops or lines or rings--this mushroom is well known and relatively easily recognized. It is a well known and good edible, but probably not one for beginners, since it can bear a superficial resemblance to several poisonous mushrooms...and one should avoid any specimens growing on well traveled roadsides.
As a rank amateur who harvested these shrooms a foot away from our busy street, I'm handily disqualified from attempting to eat anything at this point. Thanks,!
