    Golden Chanterelle?

    Look like chantrelle.
  5. My guess is possibly Amanita rubescens.

    Scaly Inky Cap?

    Maybe Coprinopsis atramentaria var. squamosa, which appears to be a 'scaly cap' var. of the Alcohol inky?

    Brown cap yellow pores

    Maybe an old specimen of B. Auripes.

    Monster king bolete?

    Hard to get ID without the stem and other details. Could be King, but well past prime.

    today's finds

    Took a quick hike and found three boletes, one was a bitter bolete; a large umbrella polypore and a big cluster of oysters. The umbrella polypore was a bit past prime so I left it behind. It was growing in a patch of cedar trees, the others I found last week were both in beech woods.

    Help IDing mushrooms

    Maybe Coprinus quadrifidus. Not sure if that is the 'current' classification, but that is the one listed in the book i have closest to me right now. 'Scaly Inky Cap'

    yes. they all came from one single base stalk and then branch off each other similar to broccoli or cauliflower heads. thanks Dave. I only picked one of the three. any cooking suggestions?
