  1. They have the look of a Mycena which has white spore print. Looks like there's also a Ganoderma in one photo.
  2. Some of the photos show a white ring zone. Reminds me of Armillaria gallica. ??
  3. The stem looks like it has scabers. ?Leccinum? Nice heavy spore print. Orangish brown? What's up with that dark spot in the spore print?
  4. I see very few Suillus mushrooms. The first photo has what looks to be glandular dots. ??
  5. The first 2 have a stem that looks scrobiculate, depressions on the stem. That is a characteristic of some milk caps. The last photo looks like the stem has glandular dots ??, a characteristic of Suillus.
  6. These don't look like the campestris group. Kuo says deep pink gills that become brown and then chocolate brown. I can see grey gills in the photo. Kuo says whitish, greying and finally brown without the pink stage is the sequence for the horse. I believe arvensis is Kerrigan's name for our horse mushroom. Color bruising & staining plus smell are important characteristics in identifying Agaricus. As Dig said look for yellow staining. If the the base of the stem stains yellow when crushed and the mushroom has a chemical smell it would be a mushroom to avoid. Here in northern Allegheny county PA, I see the horse mushrooms growing under norway spruce in the spring. A tricky identification to make. In the photos you can see the partial veil has a cogwheel pattern. Hopefully Dave W will add to the conversation.
  7. Here's a Bolete that fruited in groups 4 times in the last 5 weeks under black gum trees. Seems like it's a Xerocomus? Small to medium size with a very firm reddish cap that cracks exposing yellow to white flesh. The stem frequently splits vertically exposing yellow flesh. The pores are yellow until they start producing spores which gives a olive brown print. Mild bluing in the flesh & pores. Mild tasting. X subtomentosus looks to be the closest match. ??? Variable coloring. Gonna have to get the Bessette Bolete book.
  8. Looks like an Amanita. Maybe farinosa?
  9. Looks like Leucoagaricus americanus, reddening lepiota. If it, I haven't yet seen it this summer. A cool mushroom.
  10. 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.
  11. L volemus looks like the correct ID but L corrugis is similar and could be a possibility.
  12. Doesn't the black spore print on stems eliminates Psilocybe? Looks jet black.
  13. That looks like Chloropyllum molybdites, a bad sickener with greenish spore prints. Don't eat that! A cool looking mushroom.
