  1. Phaeolus schweinitzii like. ??
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. They look like Amanita section Ceasareae, maybe A. banningiana ( a small northern Amanita) or A. arkansana ( a large southern Amanita).
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. It looks like the bottom mushroom has gills. Panus?
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. Yes they looks like F. velutipes, they love elms, usually on the tree coming from under the bark but sometimes on the roots.
  14. Yellow is the color of the spores, so maybe the end of growth for them. Around the same elm tree this year with a progressive fruiting of 33 morels, a few struggled but most did well in less than ideal conditions.
  15. Looks like an Entoloma, maybe E. strictius.
  16. Looks like Flammulina, white spore. They love elm trees. G. marginata is usually on other hardwood trees laying horizontal.
  17. Yes yellows not blacks, M. americana or a cryptic species from the great lakes, M. ulmaria.
  18. Congratulations Dave, you deserve it!
  19. By the time I started mushroom hunting the ash were mostly dead and I have yet to see a morel on an ash. Yesterday I checked the ash trees which have been treated at Allegheny Counties North Park with no morels found. Even the treated trees sometimes show the damage from the beetles.
  20. I see many young white ash. There's a live elm in the background and 7 M. diminutiva a few feet away.
  21. A good resource is Inaturalist which I think would require you to register, user name and password. When you get the hang of it, it would let you see all of the mushroom observation in the Thailand area and all other geographic locations. The observations come with the ability to read about the mushroom, if there is available content and to see the taxonomy which is good but not always complete. It also has observations for all of the kingdoms of life. A lot to learn there. Some of the more advanced individuals us mushroomobserver, you can spend a lot of time there.
  22. That's listed as a synonym. So it's not used any more. M. ulmaria is a look alike in your area but can't be distinguished without microscopy.
