  1. Really nice photos of some beautiful Chanterelles. Don't know this species. What is the location?
  2. Species of what are called "Inky caps". Notice how the caps are dissolving into a black substance near the margins, and how the gills are black. Probably a species of Coprinellus.
  3. Species of Pholiota... maybe P. aurivella or P. limonella. https://mushroomexpert.com/pholiota_limonella.html
  4. If not B. edulis, then a species very close... King Boletes.
  5. Color seen in photos taken in direct sunlight tends be washed-out. But, I agree these look like Birch Polypore, Piptoporus betulinus https://mushroomexpert.com/piptoporus_betulinus.html .
  6. New genus for the "Smooth Lepiota" is Leucoagaricus. Newest complete Latin binomial name is Leucoagaricus leucothites. Looks like this is it... expect IDing this species always seems scary, given these white-spored mushrooms superficially resemble amanitas.
  7. I'd say these are old Lactarius mushrooms that have dried out to the extent there's no longer any observable latex. Not that unusual, but makes ID trickier.
  8. Although not typical, honeys (in particular Armillaria mellea) can have very pale --almost white-- caps. I'd say that's what these are.
  9. Looks like either Calvatia craniiformis or C. cyathiformis. In order to tell the difference, one needs to see the mature spore dust.
  10. My guess is these are immature mushrooms of Leucoagaricus americanus. If correct, as the caps expand the surfaces will break apart into scales.
  11. Species of Paxillus; probably P. involutus https://mushroomexpert.com/paxillus_involutus.html.

    need ID

    This is most likely a species of Cortinarius. If correct, spore print color will be rusty brown. Laccaria mushrooms have white to very pale lilac spore prints.
  13. Probably a species of Pisolithus. Here's one possibility https://mushroomexpert.com/pisolithus_arhizus.html
  14. I think these are something other than Pleurotus. One think to check/compare is genus Hypsizygus.
  15. Usually, Armillaria tabescens caps show scales formed out of tiny hairs. I don't see such scales here, but other wise these look like A. tabescens.
  16. H. subgalbripes also comes to my mind... except the stalks look very white for this species. There are varieties of B. edulis in NA that either lack the reticulations on the stipe, or perhaps have a very faint ornamentation. Like Camille said, need to section and photograph so the flesh may be observed. Also, if you scratch the pore surface and then see if there's a color change.
  17. I don't recognize this species. Is there the remains of a partial veil on the stipe? Looks like there may be the remnant of a ring. If so, then maybe a species of Tricholoma.
  18. If by "common puffball" you mean Lycoperdon perlatum, then I agree it's not this species. But, based upon the surface having spiny ornamentation, I think it is a species of Lycoperdon. Here's an idea https://www.mycoquebec.org/bas.php?trie=L&l=l&nom=Lycoperdon umbrinum / Vesse-de-loup brun d'ombre&tag=Lycoperdon umbrinum&gro=12 . IDing Lycoperdon fruit bodies to species often requires use of a microscope.
  19. Entoloma abortivum. A pink spore print may be seen on one of the caps that's beneath another cap. Also, aborted forms --actually aborted Armillaria fruit bodies-- are seen in the photos.
  20. Interesting. My first thought was "Agaricus", but mushrooms from this genus all have "free" gills (do not reach the stalk). Maybe a species of Agrocybe?
  21. It's one of the "amerirubescens" species, maybe not exactly the same as the previous ones.
  22. Need to know whether or not the gills attach to the stems. That is, do the gills reach the stem, or do the terminate in rounded ends short of the stem? Also, knowing the spore print color will likely help here.
  23. Either Pholiota squarrosa or the very similar P. squarrosoides. Cap appears to be sticky, so I'd say it's more likely to be the latter http://www.mushroomexpert.com/pholiota_squarrosoides.html.
  24. Fertile undersurface appears to consist of pores/tubes, some with elongated walls. Phellodon was fertile surface consisting of spines --little tooth-like projections... like tiny icicles. I think these may be Onnia tomentosa. Are there any coniferous trees nearby? O. tomentosa grows from the buried roots of conifers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onnia_tomentosa Also consider, Coltricia perennis.
