    Grifola Frondosa?

    I’ve never found grifola frondosa before but I think this is what I found but not 100% sure. From the research I have done it usually grows at the base of oak or beech but this was found in the soil at the base of a large dead maple tree. I did not have my phone on me when I found it so the images are not where I found it. There is no staining when bruised & the spore print is white. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. From my experience with growing shitake, it does turn brown on the outside of the block before pinning/fruiting begins. Usually there is more browning than what is in your photos but that could also be related to the strain you have.

    First Chanterelles of 2018

    Looks like Virginia creeper to me.
  5. Good afternoon, Purchased two books the other day. One being "Mushrooms of the Northeast" by Teresa Marrone and Walt Sturgeon. Something small enough I carry with me in the woods. The other one being "Boletes of Eastern North America" by Alan Bessette, William C. Roody and Arleen Bessette. There are a lot of bolete type mushrooms in my area.

    Scaly Inky Cap?

    Good morning, Found these a week or so ago in south-central Pa. The closest I can come with is Coprinopsis variegata but what I’ve read about it is it grows on dead wood or wood chips. The nearest tree was probably 15 yards away & there wasn’t any wood chips nearby either. Any ideas? thanks
