    Welcome Diab!! Great to see fellow Louisianaians enjoying what our beautiful state had to offer. I apologize for the late welcoming. Been chasing whitetail. Harvested a few Hericium aka Lions mane and oysters while hunting this year. I’m in the Breaux Bridge area

    Greetings from South Louisiana

    I have my hands pretty full with life right now. All good things just super busy. Post your finds in the identification section and the more detailed you are with pictures and descriptions the closer we can come to a positive ID.

    I’m hoping to get a foray together late spring early summer 2019. More than likely it’ll be at Red Dirt Trail System Kisatchie National Forest

    Are these young hens?

    Looks to be two different species. Rau......Looks like you may have Ganoderma lucidum

    I think you have yourself some sort of Lactarius. If I’m not mistaken, I seen white latex in second photo. Also note the rings on cap. Most Lactarius have that feature ( I believe) Not sure the species but I would bet 3 bucks it is probably spicy lol. Small amount nibbled then spat out is key in identifying some mushrooms. I’m no expert so the experts should be chiming in soon

    Austroboletus gracilis??

    After last years run in with extremely bitter chanterelles, lions mane , and L. Indigo..... I was convinced that my taste buds completely switched. Everything I enjoyed eating,mostly wild edibles,tasted horrible(super bitter). At that very moment I was struck with the overwhelming feeling that I will never be able to enjoy wild mushrooms again !!! Very depressing. I was actually to the point where I said the heck with it. I’m done with this hobby. For whatever reason I chose to give it another go. So here I am !! The other thing I came up with is that I left the mushrooms in the fridge too long before preparing and they turned bitter.
