  1. In Canada we originally had the $1 coin called the loonie because it had a loon on the front, and because people thought it was crazy to switch from paper bills to coins. When the $2 bill was eliminated the creative minds in Canada came up with the term of affection "twoonie". An extension of the popular loonie term. For the record, I among millions of other Canadians, absolutely hated the idea of taking our small denominations and making them into coins. Now....I wouldn't have it any other way.
  2. We have them in Northern Canada east of the Rockies, and some are occasionally posted from the foothills of the Rockies on the Alberta Myco Society website.
  3. Amanita Muscaria is a very good mushroom if detoxified, but like you, not my cup of tea. I find more choice mushroom than I can eat in a year without tempting fate.
  4. FYI, in Canada most people just group larch together with tamarack, and use tamarack as the name.
  5. I would bet big money that they are leccinums.
  6. Bitterness can be variable in mushrooms as well. I generally don't bother tasting known mushrooms that are bitter, but when I was younger on forays I picked T. Felleus and brought it in and everyone else on the foray nibbled a bit and agreed it wasn't bitter. Another one came in and you couldn't spit it out fast enough.
  7. Good thinking, you definitely don't eat any Amanita without 100% ID.
  8. I'm not seeing the stalk reticulation that one would hope for a b. edulis.
  9. A shot of the undersides would be very helpful to identification. They do look a lot like the golden oysters that I grow but I am not seeing the pronounced decurrent gills running down the stalks that are typical of GOs. This could be because of the pic quality though. If you could get us a pic of the under sides and stalk that would help. It is not uncommon for farmed oysters to branch out into the wild, and it is not uncommon for people who hobby farm commercial varieties to do so in the wild on fallen logs and stumps. I do a lot of my hobby oyster mushroom growing in the wild. I simply plug suitable logs and stumps in my mushroom picking areas.
  10. Thanks Dave, was just kind of guessing because it is such a young specimen.
  11. looks like a young leccinum or tylopilus.

    Might be...cut it in half and send a pic.
  13. Not enough information contained in your photos to make a determination.
