    What are these guys?

    I thought they were just washed out older specimens but you may be right. That's how our alveolaris look up here when they get older.

    What are these guys?

    These appear to be Polyporus Alveolaris, They are edible when young. These appear to be older specimens.

    Is this a Bolete?

    Yes, that is definitely a bolete.

    Mushroom on bark id

    I agree with Diana.

    Hydnellum species?

    Hydnellum peckii may be one proposal.

    Identification help!

    Looks like Strobilomyces Strobilaceus.

    Macrolepiota recipes

    When I was young, in my hometown, we had a retired university professor who was a mycologist. Due to his health he couldn't get out in the field anymore so he would hire a bunch of us early teens to go mushroom pick for him and he paid us per basket. Anything and everything went into the basket, and he would sort them and teach us about various edibles to watch for as we brought them. Man...I wish I had listened a little better...lol.

    Mushroom from woods in Northeast MS

    T. Caligatum, in my experience, also smell like cinnamon just not as pronounced.

    Armillaria tabescens?

    Yea...I think I'm too far North. Never seen one in the wild and was told by a mycologist leading a foray that we are outside their Northern range. Too darn cold for them...lol. I have to go 400 miles S for morels too. I am 100 S of the tree line as the crow flies so we are on the furthest edge of everything.

    Mushroom from woods in Northeast MS

    What does it smell like?

    Luckily, I rarely have that problem where I pick mushrooms. I can imagine it would be a drag though.

    Armillaria tabescens?

    Never thought of Omphalotus Dave. I always do because in my neck of the woods we are way outside the range for Jacks. Never seen one, probably never will. But I will keep that in mind when posting here.

    Armillaria tabescens?

    What color was the spore print? The A. Tabescens I pick in Canada look a lot different than these. Yes, some people have reactions to honey mushrooms but when parboiled I have never met a person yet who has had a bad reaction. I do not feel confident confirming these as A. Tabescens although they could very well be. Are they growing out of a tree root? Is the stem pithy, is the spore print white, are all questions that need to be answered before attempting consumption. IF you are confident you have honeys, I would not worry about trying them after parboiling.

    Hydnum umbilicatum seems like the most likely proposal. Excellent edible.
  15. Could be Ringless honey mushrooms (armillaria tabescens). Could be galerinas, although they look a lot more like honeys to me. Spore print needed. Definitely not a psychedelic of any kind.
