  1. Dave is probably right; C. tomentosus is a very common fall mushroom near Vancouver.
  2. It would be helpful if all of the photos were right side up.
  3. On a new mulch Lepista is more likely than Cortinarius. Bluets really like conifer yard waste.
  4. They look like the Craterellus tubaeformis that I find in southwestern BC, Canada. I don't know if there is anything similar in eastern North America, but they're quite distinctive where I live. It looks like you also found some Hydnum umbilicatum (another good late season edible).
  5. Looks like a typo: "to pores" = "no pores".
  6. Between 10 and 11, and possibly after 14 (excluding the trumpets), those look like gilled mushrooms; the rest look like typical Chanterelles.
  7. These look like Marasmius oreades, but compare them to the description in https://www.mushroomexpert.com/marasmius_oreades.html.
  8. It's hard to tell from the photo, but it's not a White Chanterelle. It's probably a Lactarius.
  9. RJ Martin, you're more likely to get a response if you post this in the forum: In the field/Identifying mushrooms.
  10. I normally don't bother identifying mushrooms that I'm not familiar with; but this time I used the Matchmaker (Mycomatch) app and entered the little info I could make out from your photo and came up with an 83% match for Boletus coniferarum, which is native to BC. The photo below, from https://calphotos.berkeley.edu/cgi/img_query?enlarge=0000+0000+0114+2716, looks promising.
  11. That looks like Hypomyces chrysospermus infecting some kind of bolete mushroom. This is a common occurence for certain species.
  12. For a reasonable ID we need to see the stem and bottom of the cap.
  13. After several years with poor burn morel harvests, this year has had the right combination of many forest fires last year and ample rainfall this spring. The first burn that I went to was OK but not greatly productive, but the next burn I tried, at a higher elevation, produced 42 liters of fine morels on the first trip and about 50 liters of mostly larger morels this past week. The photo below shows 6 liter bucket number 8 after I had just filled it before finding the pictured group, which contained about 20 morels. This was only about 50 yards from where I had parked the car, and I picked another couple of liters in a small area. Quite a few years ago, there was another burn nearby that produced morels into September.
  14. It's certainly not a White Chanterelle, but I'm not familiar with the wood-inhabiting mushrooms east of the Rockies.
  15. I don't think that these are truffles; I haven't seen any truffle images showing any signs of clustering. These look more like very immature Amanitas or puffballs, but someone else might have a better idea. Was any part of these, like the brown colored areas, exposed above ground?
