  1. It is very personal. E.g. I do sometime keep moderately worm infested mushroom if flesh looks firm and fresh but many people toss mushrooms with any sign of infestation. For honeys I keep caps if cut is white and gills are light colored. For hens and chicken I do not like chalky/leathery taste so I collect only young, but I know some people try to salvage older mushrooms by cooking with milk or broth. I tried and was not impressed
  2. Yes, some more, some less. If mushroom is slightly dehydrated sometimes you do not see any
  3. If there are tiny cracks on a cap it is R. Virescens, the rest I can't identify
  4. One of several sp of green russula
  5. Not a gilled bolete and not a chant. It has true gills, not a false gills you expect from chant.
  6. I am pretty sure it is aborted entoloma since both recognizable honeys (pic 4) and entoloma with pinkish spores (pic 2 and 3) are present, but decided to post just in case since it is a first time I found it, about 10lb of blobs. Is it OK to cook blobs and developed entoloma together of is it better to separate them?
  7. Stem indeed brings leccinum in mind but bright yellow pores with blue staining not so much
  8. True. Flesh inside appeared white, consistent with true chants
  9. Looks like ringles honey somewhat deformed by low moisture conditions
  10. Is Saproamanita Thiersii poisonous? The species is suspected of being toxic as is the case in most of its close relatives. Handling the mushroom is harmless; poisoning occurs only on ingestion. A case of poisoning that may have been caused by S. thiersii has been reported from the state of Puebla, Mexico
  11. It is OK to eat but I would not eat one which is spongy and bruised.
