    Deer mushrooms

    I have read of this mushroom latex. Definitely didn't realize this was one of them. Thanks again.

    Unkown mushroom that looks like devils snuff

    After researching Armillaria in Florida they don't seem to look the same. Much thicker stipe and the caps don't look similar to A. mellea or A. tabensis. If so, I am assuming my pictures show adolescent mushrooms whose caps will grow outward and eventually show a wavy-like pattern around the sides?

    Orange mushroom with gills

    Noted. I am prepared for spore prints moving forward. Thank you.

    Column Stinkhorn - awesome fungi

    Yes exactly. I noticed the p. Fusiformis has a skinnier more conical point where the arms(lacking the proper word) meet at the top.

    North American Destroying Angel

    Ok enough with the jokes. I was looking for a vulva but didnt think to extract it from the substrate. For now on I will be ready for spore prints, horizontal sections, and vulva extractions. A. Lavendula does also look strikingly similar.

    Small gilled almost transparent mushroom

    Yea after posting this I read up on mycena and recognized it as such. The stem wasn't slimy, but it was very fragile and damp.

    Unknown brown/yellow gilled mushroom. Gymnopilis?

    Looks spot on, wish I would've known, would've harvested.
  8. I love hericium erinaceus and am thinking about taking this to agar media and petri dishes!
  9. I am confident in this ID- Clathrus Columnatus. This was really cool to stumble upon but did not smell friendly. It was found next to a downed tree growing by itself in late December.

    Orange mushroom with gills

    This brown/orange colored mushroom had a darker center fading to a lighter orange/yellow, had intermediate gills attaching to the stipe, and a remnant of a dark colored ring.
  11. These were found growing from the ground or buried roots in northern Florida in December. I thought of a lycoperdon I saw a picture of but know its different. It has warts that become spread from the center. I prematurely broke the veil to find gills underneath. They were growing gregariously and from one common stem.
  12. I am pretty confident in my identification as Amanita Bisporigera. It was standing alone by itself next to a deer mushroom or russula in a north Florida forest. I fried it up and enjoyed it for Xmas dinner! Kidding

    Deer mushrooms

    I believe these are old chewed-on pluteus cervinas that were found in Florida growing right next to amanita bisporigera from the ground. It was found alone.

    Laccaria laccata or not?

    I think I have succesfully IDed these as common laccaria but the gills look to be more closely spaced and not adnate or decurrent. They were growing out of moss covered dirt surrounding tree roots.

    Fuzzy topped mushroom

    Unfortunately the images didnt come out too well but maybe someone is familiar with this one? It was peach/orange/tannish with a fuzzy cap with thicker darker "fuzz" closer to the top center. Could it be a climacocystis?
