  1. Today
  2. Yesterday
  3. I found this growing in my backyard in Michigan. It was growing in healthy green grass. As you can see in the pictures, it has white gills, and a veil ( sorry if my terminology is incorrect), I’m working on a spore print now
  4. Hi Dave, What features lead you to say C. romagnesiana? The thick bell shaped grey cap reminds me of C atramentaria.
  5. Wow! Some real monsters there Dave! It’s been a good year so far. I went out in the rain a little bit yesterday. Also all under dying elms. I have found absolutely nothing under tulips this year. And I have giant stands of huge tulips.
  6. Really old polypores can be difficult to ID. The top photo looks like an old fruit body of Picipes badius (aka. Polyporus badius). The next-to-last photo looks more like Ceriop[orus squamosus (Dryad's saddle). What does the underside look like?
  7. The shaggy exteriors and vertically grooved interiors point toward C. striatus. For this species eggs are white with thin cords attached.
  8. The mushrooms appear to be in the initial stage of deliquescing (dissolving into an inky liquid). Maybe Coprinopsis romagnesiana.
  9. Lat photo appears to show pores on the underside. These mushrooms look like Trametes versicolor to me (Turkey Tail). They look to be old ones. When finding this species in spring it's likely they fruited the previous year.
  10. Was on the decaying tree in the last pic. Looks like cottonwood maybe? In forest with lots of other dryad's saddle.
  11. just want to say that this is beautiful!
  12. This one looks pretty straightforward to me, but I just want to make sure I'm IDing correctly. There seem to be quite a few birds' nest fungi. I unfortunately wasn't too observant when I saw these. Didn't even notice the "eggs" in the bottom, nor did I look at the tree, but from the photo it looks like a decaying birch.
  13. @troutddicted Thank you for the well wishes:) Best of luck to you as well. @Dave W Great pic and thanks for the info!
  14. From under dead elm this past Monday.
  15. I found these pretty close to the ink caps I posted earlier. Could this be a coprinopsis atramentaria based on the little orange flecks on the cap? These are much fresher than the other shrooms I posted earlier so I didn't recognize them at first. The stem, cap, and color looked completely different to me.
  16. U. craterium has tiny bumps on the exterior part; just a trait typical of the species. But, I white flecks mentioned may be very small insects. Here's a photo showing the bumps and the insects.
  17. Found these on a dead buckthorn stump. They look like trametes versicolor, but I want to make sure they are not stereum ostrea. Thanks for the help.
  18. Lovely photos and great ID-ing. Good luck with the morels!
  19. Thank you, @Dave W This is my first year mushroom hunting and I haven't found any morels yet, but I am having a field day learning all of these other species. Have a few more pics I got today for anyone else interested. Does anyone have info about the white flecks on the outside of the cup?
  20. Last week
  21. Yep, Urnula craterium. I usually find this species before the first morels fruit. But, the Urnula fruit bodies may persist in situ for weeks.
  22. Here in NE PA I find more Flammulina during spring than any other time of year.
  23. Mycena species. I found something similar here in PA a few weeks ago https://mushroomobserver.org/451865?q=1gjUj . For many Mycena, difficult to pin down to species.
  24. Melanoleuca makes sense to me. The genus produces some of the earliest seasonal terrestrial mushrooms. Only mushrooms confidently IDed to species should be consumed.
  25. Panaeolus cyanescens is a tropical/subtropical species. I have never seen the mushrooms first-hand, and as such cannot offer a confident appraisal. This appears to match the Wiki description. I have no knowledge of potential Panaeolus cyanescens look-alike species that occur in Costa Rica.
  26. I've found one or two apps that provide a quiz feature to help sight identify types of mushrooms, however many of these are not tailored to region, so although they are useful for others, they are not for me. Anyways, does anybody know a good quiz tool like this to help supplement the mycology books? Preferably south east region?
