  1. Looks like Amanita crenulata.
  2. Looks like xylaria polymorpha. Common name "Dead man's fingers"
  3. Could be Boletus rubellus "Ruby Bolete. Edible but not great. Whatever they are, way to old for consumption. Your friend should never consume mushrooms without 100% identification. She's playing with her life.
  4. Found growing in the spring. among pine needles from white pine. Sorry no picture of gills or spore print.
  5. Looks like a Laccaria, which I could not say.
  6. Found on Bald Head Island N.C. Has an incredible mycelium network. Outer covering has a papery feel, strips off easily revealing a gelatinous interior with a cross pattern showing g 4 quarters. Growing in woodchip pile. I did find some Clathrus archeri on the island last year in late stage. I'm here for 2 more days. Hope to see what erupts.
  7. Tyromyces is a good probability. It also looks like Irpex lacteus. A microscopic ID would could confirm either way.
  8. Hard to tell by the photos. May be Rhodotus palmatus in the later stage. Unusual and uncommon . When in the button stage it has a very distinct raised web pattern that fades to a smooth surface, yet the pattern can still be seen. Common name is Wrinkled Peach.
  9. It looks like Mycena pura, common name Lilac Bonnet. The bump on top is indicative. As are the gills and general appearance. That is one colorful specimen, which can vary due to regional and climatic conditions. Nice find.
  10. I found these on Bald Head Island N.C. yesterday. Being from Wisconsin, I am not familiar with this mushroom. After analysis and research I believe it is Gymnopilus aeruginosus. Found in oak wood chips. Rust orange spore print. Common name Magic Blue Gym. Can someone confirm or deny?
  11. Came across these on the bulevaurd. Here in Central Wisc. This last 10 days we have been in an Arctic cold front. More snow than I can ever remember for this time of year. Today 45 degrees. These must be Honey Mushrooms. They had certainly been frozen for days. 2ft by 1ft slab of mushrooms ,very densely packed. Thought the season was over.
  12. I concur with Dave. Blewits can produce some strange fruiting bodies, as is true of many if not almost all mushroom species. Growing conditions, including humidity,light,age, rain, ect, all can change the appearance from the "so called" norm.
  13. I found one last year also. The common name is Tapioca Slime Mold. It's quite fascinating.
