  1. Today
  2. Need to see photos of fruit bodies in better condition and harvested so that different aspects may be photographed.
  3. I don't know Boletus patrioticus; it's a species of SE NA. Looking at a few sources it seems this is at least a possibility.It may help to see what one of these looks like after it's vertically sectioned. https://boletes.wpamushroomclub.org/product/boletus-patrioticus/
  4. I don't know the species Favolus teniculus; probably a subtropical species that does not occur up here in PA. Interesting find. Online photos of F. teniculus look like a good match for the ones seen in these photos.
  5. I haven't dehydrated S. spraguei. When I find unexpanded young ones I harvest them and use them fresh. A tasty mushroom, probably good dried. I'll need to check some Trumpet spots.
  6. Maybe a species of Mycetinis. This genus is housed within the Family Marasmiaceae. A slug could have claimed it, although 30 minutes seems like pretty quick work for a slug. In rainy weather mushrooms can decay very quickly.
  7. I agree, Rickenella fibula. I found a pair last Friday https://mushroomobserver.org/468879?q=1j9dc .
  8. I think these are a species of Armillaria. As mentioned above, getting a spore print color from a more mature one would settle Pholiota vs. Armillaria.
  9. Interesting. No guess about the ID. Spore print color? I wonder if these mushrooms are naturally this dark or if there's something in the substrate that's causing them to be so dark?
  10. Agree with Jeff. One of the species in the Leucoagaricus rubrotinctus group.
  11. I think these may be Marasmius nigrodiscus.
  12. Amanita ID generally requires seeing the entire stalk, which would need to be carefully extracted from the soil. I think the large pale ones may be Amanita muscaria var. guessowii. The very pale cap color is interesting. Sometimes the yellow pigment on the cap of this species fades, but if you section the cap you see a thin yellow like beneath the whitish outer surface. Are the brighter yellow ones the same species? Difficult to say. Not much info to glean from the photos of those yellow ones seen beneath the grass. These past few days I have been in a few places where 4-5 different species of Amanita were growing within eyesight.
  13. I'm actually not sure either --about just avoiding the yellow part. But, I like to play it safe.
  14. Yesterday
  15. Pretty certain this is a Chanterelle. I hear these are one of the best edibles, which I'd rarely consider picking any wild mushroom for eating but thought I'd verify as I very well may pick these to try... without the snails of course who apparently think it's delicious. Sorry if the image is flipped, rotating and saving it didn't resolve.
  16. Found this driving down one of the dead end roads while out for a quick hunt for after rain mushrooms. Appears to be a Patriotic Bolete? Stained very dark blue after being disturbed.
  17. I imagine this is a new issue for growing mushrooms on logs. I made up a mix of log and spawn types; total of 50 logs. We piled them in a dark part of the woods where it always stays moist near the lake. I had 4 perfect stacks and after 1 week in the woods I came back to find 12 logs missing, and another 3 or 4 half chewed apart. I don't get along with beavers at the best of times; but this one really boiled my blood. I'm surprised they wood eat them when covered in so much paraffin wax.
  18. Hello all I am just starting out on my fungi journey and need guidance. Was walking my pup this morning in the wooded park and spotted these lovey guys. It was raining so the picture of the stump where they were growing is not good unfortunately. I live in south Florida and am working on learning to identify trees as well so I can know what the mushrooms are growing on. Unfortunately I have no idea what kind of fallen/dead tree is in the picture. Thank you so very kindly for any and all information. Hope you are having a fabulous day Shannyn Scott
  19. Boy, the woods are absolutely loaded with mushrooms right now. The first two pictures are what I assume are Suillus spraguei. The smaller specimens still had a partial veil covering the pore surface. Caps are slippery. Does anyone have experience in Dehydrating these? I could literally pick thousands right now. the last picture is the largest giant puff ball I have found to date.... another heads up is that the black trumpets are also everywhere right now.
  20. Last week
  21. Rainy day, mostly drizzle and still no sun, very humid out and not overly hot. The little guy in the photos was there, marked within 1 inch by a small branch. I returned to see its progress about an hour after my last inspection. After close inspection, have found no noticeable trace of the mushroom. I presume it could have been eaten, although after a recent cutworm problem insects in my lawn are a rarity. Knowing some species do have brief life cycles, wanted your thoughts on the likely species. I assume it to be a Parasol, Gymnopus or Marasmiaceae.
  22. I went looking mainly for oysters and chanterelles, but these caught my attention. One "small" and then one large. Never found or eaten these before. Total weight is 1.6 kg. Also got some oysters but 0 chanterelles.
  23. Very small vibrant colored mushroom, first I've seen these in my yard although very easy to miss. Only a single specimen making me feel a little bad picking it for a photo op. I believe these are orange moss caps but always appreciate a 2nd eye.
  24. I agree with Kevin. They look like a Pholiota species.
  25. Possibly very hairy honeys? Let them grow a bit more
  26. Growing in wood chips in very shady area. Caps: small 2-3in, multiple shades of brown Stalk: shaggy with veil remnants Faint indistinct smell.
  27. Looks to me like Leucoagaricus rubrotinctus or similar.
  28. Multicolor tan-light-brown cap. Translucent like cap color reminds me of Wood Blewit. Growing in woodchips. Sporeprint: likely brown.
