  1. Go on mushroomexpert.com and scroll down the page to the Boletus section and click on harrisonii. It has a good explanation about the small red capped blue staining boletes. Always a struggle for me. One of these little red mushrooms come up in my yard every year. I'm still waiting for them this year.
  2. L volemus looks like the correct ID but L corrugis is similar and could be a possibility.
  3. Doesn't the black spore print on stems eliminates Psilocybe? Looks jet black.
  4. That looks like Chloropyllum molybdites, a bad sickener with greenish spore prints. Don't eat that! A cool looking mushroom.
  5. Looks like an old one. Here's one from yesterday with mold on it.
  6. I don't think I posted this before. Growing with chestnut oaks the last 2 years. It has a hour glass shape growing around debris and merging with others. Last year it was saturated with water and quickly stained dark brown. Wikipedia has a nice photo of an orangish H aurantiacum that looks just like it but this is a brown mushroom. ??
  7. I find a few of these, I think they're Tapinella? Mushroomexpert only has 2 examples. T atrotomentosa is the closest. It has a cool velvety stem.
  8. The spore print on the stem skirt is dark like the brown gills. Agaricus?
  9. Looks like B bicolor. Here's a fresh one from today.
  10. Looks like Amanita parcivolvata.
  11. Cantharellus lateritius, the smooth chanterelle. They are very common here in SW PA & a popular edible but frequently are infested with holes from insect larva. Chanterelles are listed as mycorrhizals with trees meaning they share and or take nutrients or water from each other. Maybe just growing thru rotting wood from the soil . I guess the color is variable. You have to thoroughly cook wild mushrooms to consume them. The CajunShroomer has a post in the general mushroom discussion and the way he cooks them! I love Louisiana style cooking.
  12. Yes I'd guess edulis group. I've been seeing quite a few similar boletes that are always in poor condition. I ID them as B variipes without certainty.
  13. A. amerirubescens has a smooth bulb & a skirt. A. muscaria has concentric shaggy rings at the top of the basal bulb & a skirt. Just goin by what I can see on mushroomexpert it could be Amanita russuloides. Pimply? lined, fragile ring thats nearly gone, a bulb with a rim & a cap with few warts. Just a guess. There are so many Amanitas I usually can't ID them except for a handful of the common ones.
