  1. Found a new batch of these growing out of a tree, I’m pretty sure they are golden oysters I hear all about. Gills going straight to the base just want to check with my first wild spotting
  2. I was hoping for St,George but the gills are darker. I am doing a spore for the I.d, but they were beside an active road so not going to consume
  3. I think I’ve also found these before in #3
  4. Found a cluster of these, I kinda they they are close or are Agrocybe pediades like I found in #6.
  5. Found these growing in a friends horse field in a small cluster. Going to do a spore print but curious for an I.d.

    Hey Dave I think I’ve found these guys again or am I wrong ? Growing right out of an old Fallen branch.
  7. Found this guy growing inside an old dead tree, spotted it from aways because of the colour. My first thoughts are chicken of the woods based on color I.d, texture (moist not slimy) kinda reminds of how crab meat peels. I saw a bit of a shelf but since it was inside the tree it wasn't a clean classic chicken if the woods I’ve seen pics of. Smell.. is there a certain aroma it should be, there isn’t anything overpowering but it for sure has a bit of a presence. Any look alikes or is this fairly night night and day? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Dave, Thanks so much again for your insights, it was really good to get deep into the identification of the mushroom at hand. I think it's also good to weight your risks as to know what the possible look alike may do to you. I saw in this case that it was mild discomfort for the most part - no immediate deaths. So that weight in with the work you helped me to figure out with this mushroom was enough to give it ago. Smell was a big one, when cut it does smell like cucumbers yet the look alikes also smell foul - I never thought of the concept to smell a mushroom! I thought we didn't have enough for a big meal for my wife and I so I bought some store bought oyster mushrooms that almost looked identical when chopped and cooked. Looking forward to some more positive I.ding

    Did the taster waited 30 mins and no sweats or I’ll affects. When cut you really smell 🥒 cucumber. Spore print showed up white against white laminate. Tasty mushroom, cooked with olive oil, spring onion, eggs and homemade sourdough.

    Hey Dave thanks again, I’m doing a print on a white laminated paper see what it holds. I researched the other probabilities and the main feature I’m not seeing is the depressed center on cap. I looked up Lepista personata and it closes like a close by second beside the colour in the stems separating the two - otherwise both are tasty. leucopaxillus I noticed the gills merged into the stem smoother where mine defiantly look emarginate. I’ll do a small test bite to see if I get the sweats that clitocybe give - I’m within a 90% degree of confidence.

    Spore print from one of them yesterday I see a hint of pink, or am I biased. Trying to find reasons why it’s not Calocybe gambosa
  13. Thanks I know where to go tomorrow 😃

    When cut In have had a dank green and black inside which means probably poison right
