    I looked and I found! I think...

    If none of the younger ones had veil or partial veil over the gills then I would say Blewits. Definitely spore print a bunch. Usually to me they print fast. Color of print should be off-white super light beige or buff very light pink. Great find!!! October-November is when we find them by me. The only look-alike we seen are Violet Corts. Those always have the veil or some veil over the gills when young and they print rusty brown or dark copper. They are nasty fellas.

    Upside down bolete

    The normal birch bolete you found is also likely a Leccinum sp. It's normal for some to funnel out. If stalk is "scabber" it's usually a Leccinum. I don't know what Leccinum sp. you found. Maybe someone else can help you. I bet Dave or Eatbolete know. Good luck.

    Upside down bolete

    Not a Boletus. Looks like one of many Leccinum sp. The scabber stalk gives it away.

    I meant, are there Armillaria species that are more safer than other Armillaria species?

    Thanks for good info Dave! Luckily most of what we froze was sauteed.

    I love those little guys 😁 By the way I gave them a try again. Ate them few times already last week. No stomach ache 👍
  10. Question. Since Clitocybe nuda (blewit) is a very good edible, is Clitocybe robusta edible? Are all Clitocybe edible?

    Help me id these two different types of mushrooms

    I would stay away from all Corts. I heard people who have no clue misindentify them as Blewits and get poisoned. Corts spore prints are rusty. Blewits are buff pale. The first photos looks like another toxic species that in my area called Poison Pie.

    What might this be?

    Looks like a whiffle ball that was spray painted hot pink, ran over by a car and then stuck into the soil.

    Clitocybe robusta vs Lepista irina?

    These look like a cousin or an uncle of a Blew it. They are not Blewits but my artist eye says they relate to Blewits.

    Auricularia auricula?

    Looks like wood ear or tree ear. Yep! Soup time!! One of my favs!
