  1. Hi ButterFinger, if you are able to, I suggest you find a mushroom club in your area to help you expand your mushroom knowledge. Clubs can be a great resource for knowledge as well as finding other people who share your interests, that you can go foraging with. Chris
  2. As usual, Dave is spot on. Here is a pic of a few Verpa split in half, with the pithy stuffing still intact. As the mushroom ages, the pith starts to become less noticeable; dissolves, collapses, disappears... Chris Here's a pic of a Verpa bohemica cap.
  3. You might also consider Hypholoma sp. for the first several pictures. H. fasciculare or even possibly H. capnoides. I'm not too sure of the gill coloration on your older specimens, so I'm seeing some traits of both...
  4. There are a few spots here in Washington, that I have found large ones like that.
  5. One to consider is Hypsizigus. Do you know what kind of tree it was?
  6. You want to cut it in half from top to bottom, to make sure there isn't an outline of a gilled mushroom inside.
  7. The reason it was solid meaty inside, is because it was not starting to degrade and sporulate yet.
  8. Looks like Clavariadelphus. Possibly C. unicolor.
  9. How did they smell? If you find more, keep the stem whole for a picture.
  10. Pics of the stem and underside would be helpful. From the print, it looks like it's bolete related, but more pics are needed.
  11. In the future, try to excavate the entire mushroom including the entire base of the stem.
