  1. Found on August 31 in SE Wisconsin in the ground a maple-ironwood forest. Only mushroom of this species nearby, I believe. Unfortunately I didn't get a spore print, but I think the cortina helps narrow it down to cortinarius? Gills purplish-brown.
  2. Found on August 14 in SE Wisconsin in a mulch bed. Maybe 3-4 others nearby. Looking on Mushroomexpert this looks fairly straightforward as none of the other Calvatiae have spots like these. Would love some confirmation. Thanks!
  3. @JOHNY Haha I did not eat this mushroom. I would never eat anything unless I am 100% sure it is not poisonous. The table cloth is because I went camping for a week and brought all of my mushroom finds back to the campsite/picnic table to get spore prints and pictures. I will have to try this shroom next time I find it though
  4. Thanks Dave for all of that invaluable info!
  5. Found on ground of hemlock/yellow birch/maple forest in central WI last week. Lots of rain. Volva at base, looks like partial veil remnants on gills. No ring apparent on stem. Perhaps remnants of warts on cap? White spore print. The color and shape doesn't seem to fit any of the amanitas in central WI. Some help would be appreciated.
  6. Found on the ground of a forest of hemlock/yellow birch/maple trees in central WI. Lots of previous rainfall. Found last Wednesday, July 14. Spore print didn't work too well (too much moisture) but it looks light brown. Pores turning yellowish in last pic. Perhaps brown birch bolete?
  7. Found growing alone on what looks like a box elder just after a rain. Can't remember if wood was dead or alive, but probably dead. This fungus looks like it could possibly Exidia Recisa but it looks perhaps a bit too brown to be E. recisa?
  8. Thanks! And thanks for sharing that website...looks great!
  9. That sounds great! I still need to need to get a microscope for more in depth study of spores.
  10. Thank you so much for your help and keeping this forum flourishing!!
  11. You may have forgotten to post the pics
  12. Found growing gregariously on dead wood about a week ago in a hardwoods forest. Didn’t check wood type, pretty sure it was decayed and unrecognizable. Clusters of mica caps growing nearby. edit: spore print pale, although the edges were more brown Added spore print pic Sinuate gills, jagged cap margin. Drop of purple juice in first pic leads me to believe this is mycena haematopus. Would love to hear other opinions from more knowledgeable people though
