  1. Welcome aboard from St. Martin Parish Peanut. Looks like you have some prime specimens there. Nice find.
  2. I would agree as long as there aren’t any yellow staining and the presence of a chemical smell is absent. Also, make sure that pesticides and other poisons are not present. Agaricus tend to absorb chemicals found in soils Choice finds !!!
  3. I’d say with certainty it is NOT a chanterelles I would suggest looking into lactarious or russala Press with finger on gills to see if it extrudes white latex substance. Or snapping the stalk to see if it snaps like chalk. Russalas tend to have this characteristic.
  4. That is spectacular!! Thanks for sharing!!
  5. Welcome aboard!! Very friendly and knowledgeable folks here
  6. Another key identification trait would be that the material inside is white. Looks like chanterelles to me
  7. This may be what you have https://www.mushroomexpert.com/meripilus_sumstinei.html
  8. I vote yes …. https://www.mushroomexpert.com/cantharellus_minor.html
  9. Here we go ….. https://www.mushroomexpert.com/craterellus_odoratus.html
  10. I believe it’s a type of chanterelle. I don’t have the scientific name at the moment.
  11. I believe what you had was a true puff ball. Looks like there may have been a bug eating out the inside. Or just an abnormal growth with the hole inside Bummer. But hey you ever hear the old saying???? That there are only two types of mushroom hunters. There are the old mushroom hunters and there are the bold mushroom hunters…. But there are no old bold mushroom hunters
  12. My my !!! I can only dream of morels here in the south 😭
  13. I vote black staining polypore (Meripilus sumstinei)
