  1. This seems to have a stinkhorn type of fruit that resembles a flower. I feed the worms with a small amount of kitchen scraps, junk mail and cardboard, and coffee grounds. I have had the bin for about 10 months and have never noticed anything remotely close to this. I could inspect the bottom but certainly it would break off. I thought y’all would enjoy an oddball. Thoughts? Happy 4th!
  2. Check out shroomery.org for better help
  3. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/radiolab/id152249110?i=1000373412750 I found this radiolab episode illuminating
  4. I would think that most of the associated symbiotic species would die.

    Hello and welcome. Our membership is mainly based in the USA so our knowledge base will be limited with regards to your mushrooms.
  6. A number of Agaricus are edible and commercially produced by the way. Just a mention
  7. They look very similar to me.
  8. looks like a honey mushroom to me. sport print verification would be helped https://www.mushroomexpert.com/armillaria_mellea.html
  9. It does not look like that type to me. The color is off for Gymnopilus spectabilis. Photos of the underside as well as sport print color would be useful.
  10. D. Aurora states one ID in the PNW (unverified) and populations in Arizona per his book ‘mushrooms demystified’ pg 664. Granted AZ is a world away from the PNW it shows it is on the western side of the rockies. Also of note is Aurora noted pine habitat in Michigan, PA, and NC. I too noted the eastern US main habitat but thats my limited 2 cent knowledge.
  11. I lean more towards Cantharellus cinnabarinus. A photo of the top would be helpful. I have found loads of Gomphus floccosus (shown in pics) and they are usually much larger and more squat until large size is achieved.
  12. Re “red belted polypore” I have found them growning on aspens often where I hunt. I also have never found one with a stipe as shown above. I concur with Ganoderma ID.
  13. Dutch elm seems nonexistent down here in El Paso. I also didn’t have not seen it anywhere I have been in Texas. However the most common elm is the trash tree, siberian elm ‘Ulmas pumila’. I have an 20-30 year ‘Ulmas parvofolia’ lacebark elm a few houses away that is super happy. There are also a few native elms north of me in wetter areas that seem disease free.
  14. Unfortunately due to a lack of information I doubt you will get an answer.
  15. Hello. More photos/spore print is helpful. Showing the underside of the cap would be useful too.
  16. Great find. Thanks for sharing.
  17. I believe I see veil remnants along the stipe, especially with the last picture. Possibly this recent thread is worth a look.
  18. 1. What trees are in the area? 2. General location 3. Do I notice blue bruising on the underside of the cap? 4. Spore print color? 5. smell/taste (I would taste, and spit, the younger specimen).
  19. I would suggest room temperature for spore prints vs the fridge. Also place a glass bowl or similar on top to help retain moisture.
  20. Squirrels (and deer) can eat mushrooms that are toxic to us. Reindeer are known to eat A. muscaria going way back into history.
  21. Based on the photos provided and lack of location I think that is a bold statement. LBM is all I can say.
  22. Not either. I don’t know what they are though.
  23. Dig


    Not porcini. I see three different types of mushrooms. It is best to start one thread for each mushroom. Also re boletes, they do not have gills, but rather thousands of tubes that the spores fall from.
