  1. Diminutiva under white ash tree in Allegheny Counties North Park.
  2. Nice combination for an alfredo type dinner.
  3. These long caps with long verticle lines, kinda like a diminutiva but much like M. americana. 19 under a pin oak which produced last year, 10 to 12 yards away an apple tree with 4 americana which were similar. 8 diminutiva under apple/black cherry & 8 half frees under a pin oak with black cherry close by.
  4. Looks like black morels (M. angusticeps) which are usually the earlier than the others. I see a dried up morel laying on the ground. You still have several weeks to go.
  5. Four black morel were at the base of a large white oak. The common associates, apple, elm, poplar, hickory & ash trees were absent from the area. A large black cherry was about 20 yards away, it had 2 M. diminutiva close to it.
  6. One nice one & 2 shriveled up under very dry condition, no rain for 10 days or so & hot , these under a large poplar. It's been 4 years since I've seen them at this tree.
  7. Two M. angusticeps & one diminutiva under a group of mostly live elms, these two species don't seem dependent on dead elm production. We need a good rain, it's warm and dry.
  8. I saw morels observed on Inaturalist near Washington DC this past week. Looks like it to me.
  9. Some may have already seen this. Good presentation followed by question & answer period.
  10. Looks like a good ID to me. I find something like that under hemlock.
  11. I think they may be in the P. aurivella species group.
  12. I put it on Mushroom Observer & Inaturalist earlier today. The photos were from spore prints, both koh and melzers, & a smash mounts in koh which showed a few nearly smooth spores and ornamented spores. If Beker is still accepting submissions I would submit it. I have dried the entire mushroom.
  13. This was in an area dominated by hardwoods but I think the were a couple hemlock. Concerning the Q I didn't measure those that were on end which are circular but a few times I measured the length including the snout. Is that a pore or an apiculus? Again the spores look the same whether in koh or melzers. I added a few more photos from a koh smash mount with a few (?) immature spores. I think I may be able to have the DNA analyzed later this year. Thanks Dave.
  14. Found this at Ohiopile PA on the Ferncliff peninsula. It had rained the night before. A heavy medium brown spore print. I didn't notice any odor but the taste was mild with a watermelon finish which usually leads me to Agrocybe, also the ornamented spores don't seem right for that. I mounted the spores in koh and in melzers with the same coloration. The spores averaged 10.58 x 7.44µ Q=1.42 . The prominent snout, Is that a pore or an apiculus?
  15. They look like Amanita section Ceasareae, maybe A. banningiana ( a small northern Amanita) or A. arkansana ( a large southern Amanita).
  16. I think I dried it but I can't find it. It was mounted in melzers so if it is amyloid then only a weak reaction to it. ?? If it shows up I'll smash mount a small piece of gill in both KOH and then in melzers. Dave I think you nailed. Thanks guys.
  17. The white spores without spines measured 6.82 x 4.56µ with the Q=1.5 , the apiculus visible. No partial veil, the gills attached, I didn't rub the gills to check for being waxy. Long cystidia with the basidia. I often get the microscopic names mixed up. Hygrocybe purpureofolia or purpureofolius? Maybe. This was growing in the ridge area near Donegal PA, Linn Run State Park. So many mushrooms growing.
  18. A couple of years back we talked about that one. I'll check it out and see if I can find the old post. Thanks Dave.
  19. Dark eyed vaginata like near oaks, the stem soft floccose, the volva was a loose but not widely spaced, inamyloid, the spores with a hyaline offset apiculus, average 10.9 x 7.48µ, Q=1.46 which eliminates A. vaginata. Gonna dry it. I have someone who said they would submit for DNA evaluation.
  20. It looks like the bottom mushroom has gills. Panus?
  21. In hind sight I should have left two to mature. I like A solaniolens suggestion. I think I saw that in July of 2019. Here's two photo's. PM sent. Thanks Dave.
  22. These Amanitas were at the base of an oak, small, large bulb, a delicate partial veil. Including the bulb the large individual was 3 inches tall. The smooth ?hyaline spores were 7.6 x 7.2µ making the Q 1.05, so almost round. I'm thinking the provisional Amanita subvelatipes. ?? https://mushroomobserver.org/494491
