  1. This is a very logical and reasonable explanation. Plus, Leucopaxillus genus is finally ruled out. Thank you!
  2. That's great Dave, thank you for the offer. Since I kept collected mushrooms in a fridge, I was able to pick two for spore prints on a foil; should be ready tomorrow. I was not suggesting that these mushrooms are white chanterelles (though it would be nice). Really curious to find out what genus they belong to.
  3. Interesting suggestion; thanks Dave! Visually the closest match is Hygrophorus sordidus - based on this photo https://www.mushroomexpert.com/images/kuo4/hygrophorus_sordidus_01.jpg and most of its description. The biggest non-matching trait - there is nothing slimy about any part of mushrooms that I found, though maybe the reason for that is dry weather for several days in a row. Also, the gill layer can be easily separated. One more observation - stems look similar in shape and feel to Chanterelles.
  4. Found a group of these mushrooms among decomposing oak leaves in Northern New Jersey. Younger mushrooms have decurrent gills. Stems becone narrower toward the base. Odor is not distinctive, and is rather pleasant. Spore print is white. I was looking at Leucopaxillus laterarius, but a few things don't match, like cap color and stem shape. (I have not tried to separate the gill layer yet, will do it later tonight). Any help is greatly appreciated.
  5. Thanks Dave. Will check in a few days the shape of mature mushrooms. I noticed a thick skin too - not like with any other calvatia. I would also add that smell was unusual- sorry that I cannot be more specific.
  6. Need help identifying these mushrooms, found in the grass near the boardwalk in Staten Island. My guess is that this might be Calvatia cyathiformis. I am familiar with Calvatia craniiformis and gigantea, but I've never found other species of Calvatia. There were no old mushrooms nearby to see the spore color. Any help is much appreciated.
  7. Thank you, Dave. Description matches perfectly. Tricholoma with a ring!
  8. Found this mushroom in the mixed woods in New Jersey. No vulva, enlarged stem base. Pale white/yellowish spore print. Gills bruising slightly brown. To be honest, this mushroom does not look like Lepiotas I am familiar with, but I could not come up with a better guess. Any help is appreciated!
  9. It seems to be rather Artomyces pyxidatus - a Crown-tipped coral. Ramaria species have rounded tips.
  10. It looks like Amanita Volvata. One of the indications - absence of the ring which usually present in other amanitas. Definitely not for consumption.
  11. Not exactly. Corpinus Comatus is technically edible, but it becomes poisonous if mixed with alcohol. Apparently, even if you drink two days after eating this mushroom you can get very unpleasant symptoms. As Dave said about Cortinarius, there are some very dangerous species among them. Not many people are experimenting with this genus.
  12. Mushroom on top of you picture is most likely a Corpinus Comatus or another member of ink cap family. Cortinarius species on the bottom.
  13. This mushroom belongs to Suillus family. Might be S. Granulatus - if cap surfaces looks covered with granulas (photo is slightly unfocused, so it's hard to tell). If there is some sort of a ring on the upper portion of the stalk it might point to S. Luteus.
  14. Thanks Dave and MicroDoc! Craterellus oderatus looks similar but something doesn't match. I checked some other links at Mushroom Expert and stumbled upon https://www.mushroomexpert.com/cantharellus_lateritius.html. These photos I believe most closely resembles what I found:
  15. Agree with svs. Everything points out to L.Delicious or orange milky. Just make sure it exudes orange-red latex.
