    Purple ones

    Look into Laccaria ochropurpurea
  2. Matt McDermott

    Purple gills

    Maybe Laccaria ochropurpurea? Would have white spore print.
  3. Matt McDermott


    Maybe type of suillus?
  4. Matt McDermott

    First time find

    Think that's a type of Pholiota

    I looked and I found! I think...

    Good find (as long as they print right). Have not found any yet this fall. All of my normal leaf compost areas I find them in are still a no show.

    which pleurotos?

    That's it. Thanks Dave.

    Large white stalked polypores, 2 diff. species?

    I've only used them in the Spring and never this old. They tend to be best when very young. I would think these may be past salvageable, but maybe someone else has a different idea.

    which pleurotos?

    Not sure which, or if, pleurotos this is. Big Maple log. 'Hairy' caps and stem bases.
  9. Matt McDermott

    Oyster mushrooms?

    Look at Pleurotus ostreatus.

    Large white stalked polypores, 2 diff. species?

    Maybe old, decaying dryads saddle
  11. Matt McDermott

    Old man?

    Weird, never saw anything like that
  12. Matt McDermott

    yellow with spots help

    Pholiota limonella or P. aurivella maybe?
  13. Matt McDermott

    any idea?

    So, Chestnut bolete pores fo from whitish to pale yellow when older. It looks like the pore surface in the picture is more pink. This may be a type of tylopilus?
  14. Look into Entoloma abortivum. https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.mushroomexpert.com/entoloma_abortivum.html&sa=U&ved=2ahUKEwj23oHQkP3dAhWxs1kKHWVRDK0QFjAHegQICBAB&usg=AOvVaw2dtNmywD-j0sJ_AZivq5S3

    are these a type of cortinarius?

    Look into Lepista Nuda. Should have off white too pinkish spore print, cort will have rusty brown print. Some corts are very toxic. Just my opinion, wait for others.
