Hi all,

when travelling around here in Brazil (in the northeast, about 6° south of the equator) I found a mushroom growing in the middle of a sandy/loamy path that looked like Coprinus comatus (Shaggy Mane) at the first glance. But when i opened one I saw that it did not have any gills inside but kind of a foam.
Does anybody know what kind of mushroom this could be ?

Here are some pics:

Hey thank you for the fast answer ! :smile:

Have found some interesting stuff on the internet about this mushroom.
Apparently it is edible and can be cultivated:

Culivation of desert mushrooms

It also is supposed to have some medical value:
