  1. The Mushroom Whisperer

    Type of Oyster Mushroom? Maybe? 1st ID inquiry

    Certainly explains the fuzzy stem.

    Type of Oyster Mushroom? Maybe? 1st ID inquiry

    One to consider is Hypsizigus. Do you know what kind of tree it was?

    Please Help Me Identify Mushroom Find 10-11-18

    Any specific odor, good or bad?
  4. The Mushroom Whisperer

    are these a type of cortinarius?

    Any odor?
  5. The Mushroom Whisperer

    Puffball?

    You want to cut it in half from top to bottom, to make sure there isn't an outline of a gilled mushroom inside.
  6. The Mushroom Whisperer

    Identify mushroom

    The reason it was solid meaty inside, is because it was not starting to degrade and sporulate yet.
  7. The Mushroom Whisperer

    weird mushroom ID

    Looks like Clavariadelphus. Possibly C. unicolor.
  8. The Mushroom Whisperer

    Blewits?

    How did they smell? If you find more, keep the stem whole for a picture.
  9. The Mushroom Whisperer

    Very Confused

    Pics of the stem and underside would be helpful. From the print, it looks like it's bolete related, but more pics are needed.
  10. The Mushroom Whisperer

    Edible?

    In the future, try to excavate the entire mushroom including the entire base of the stem.
  11. The Mushroom Whisperer

    Help identifying neon orange fungus on a pine stump

    Possibly Tremella, based on its deflated leaflike appearance.

    ID help #2

    When you do find the, sometimes, elusive T. magnivelare, I strongly suggest you don't cook them western style, and instead stay far east; steamed in foil packets with soy, ginger, and some mirin, or grilled over charcoal with salt and a mild oil. And in soup, of course!

    chicken variant?

    +1

    Help with identification, edible or not?

    Can you get a spore print? A purple print could point towards Stropharia rugosoannulata, yellow variety. Also, are the colors in your pics accurate? Some seem light, possibly from a flash.

    Any thoughts on this one

    What type of habitat, to include the area trees? Did you nibble the cap to see if it is peppery/acrid? You can nibble a tiny piece between your front teeth, while tasting with your tongue. Some mushrooms take 20-30 seconds to display their pepperiness. Spit the piece out, and rinse after several seconds. Let us know!
