  1. So we found these clusters of mushrooms, pretty big in size at around 4-8 inches in circumference, in a forest. The climate is pretty warm right now, around 50-60F, mid may in northeastern Wisconsin less than a quarter mile from a big-ish pond and river. I have done a large amount of cross referencing and research and heavily believe it to be Dryad's Saddle. All mushrooms we have found have been growing on either dead tree stumps or hardwoods such as boxelder maple and ash- which is already dead due to emerald borers. None are sprouting out of the ground. Young mushrooms are bulbous and growing near each other, and older mushrooms are harder with a more oxidized appearance and darker patterns. They all have the distinctive pores, which, when pressed, are moist and collapse easily, and the odd, strong, but VERY distinct cucumber/melon rind smell to them. The pores are very large with the older 'shrooms and miniscule with the young ones, which all get larger closer to the rim of the shroom. When ripped apart, they have dense foam-textured flesh that is slightly soft and squishy when pressed. I am 99% sure that this is the correct mushroom, but I am not being permitted to eating them as it is believed that I will get some sort of food poisoning and die. Reasoning and saying that I have cross referenced it many times and using the fact that there are no deadly look-alikes has proven unfruitful, so I wanted to get more opinions to show as proof. I would veeery much like to be able to cook this 'shroom, as the smell makes it seem like it would go well cooked into a fried rice with a sweet sauce of hoisin, soy, and sesame with some other seasonings and veggies. We also found some other types of mushrooms, but I am not at all positive on what they are or if they are edible. One does look like a puffball, but we are unsure.
  2. Hello! Sorry for not having better/more images. My friend has recently discovered mushrooms near her apartment in Central Florida. Best guesses I had were some kind of Boletus and maybe some Lobster mushrooms. For the Bloetus, maybe Sensibilis or Oliveisporus? I cannot find any images online that look like these. But I am interested in what they are!! πŸ„ Thank you in advance!!
  3. These are growing along the edges of my garden beds which the wood is starting to decompose. They at first looked like Deer Mushrooms but I wasn't sure so I left them alone. Now they look like Oyster Mushrooms? What are they and are they edible?
  4. I found several clumps of these around the bottom of a dead oak tree, and there were some clumps a few yards from the base of the tree. Size of the caps ranges from 1 inch to perhaps 4 inches. Can anyone identify these? I believe they are ringless honey mushrooms, but I am very very new to this. I don’t want to eat something I’m not 100% sure about!
  5. These just popped up at the edge of my front lawn where the tree line starts. Pretty sure they fall in the morel family? Are they morels and if so are they edible?
  6. Hi, new member of the forum and enthusiast forager trying now mushrooms. I found some of this mushroom in my yard, i identified it first as a member of the stinkorn family due to being near a mature one the time and now due to more research i truly believe it to be a Purple Stinkhorn... And im very curious on trying to eat the egg... Can someone verify if im correct or if im wrong? Thank you so much!
  7. Found this mushroom growing way up in a sweet gum tree in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I think it’s a veiled oyster but I want to be sure. Can I eat it? Thanks!!
  8. hello all! These are growing all over my yard. I'm fairly certain my tentative i.d. is correct, but would like to know if anyone else can confirm or correct, so I don't eat something that might be toxic. TIA! Charmaine πŸ™‚πŸ„πŸ€”πŸ€žπŸ»
  9. Found a bunch of these growing in close proximity on wet/humid mulch in Baton Rouge, LA. No apparent bruising. Are they edible boletes?
  10. I'm fairly sure ive found Chanterelles in my own backyard! Ive never found Chanterelles before, and I'm pretty new to mushrooms and any sort of foraging so I want to be absolutely 100% completely sure theyre not false Chanterelles. As many opinions as I can possibly get!!They're growing along the edge of a large English Ivy patch, all from the soil and not wood. I'm in Georgia. Let me know if any additional info is needed! Furthermore, if they are Chanterelles, should I harvest them now or check in after the next big rain storm (im actually expecting one tonight) to see if they're bigger? Most of my mushroom experience is limited to admiring so sorry if thats a really obvious question
  11. Hello, i am in a field job, in this place local people hunting for this mushroom. ID please, it is in pasture on soil
  12. Picked these and I think they are Larch Bolete Suillus Grevillei can any one help. Can I and How do I dry them? If they are ok to eat.
  13. Hello all I have recently struck up an interest in mushroom foraging after consuming lions mane, chicken of the woods, hen of the woods, and trumpet mushrooms! I do understand that typical chicken of the woods is a nice orange color but upon doing some research (I acknowledge I am novice, no shame there) have discovered a species of laetiporus that is brown. I have read mixed reviews whether it is edible or not though. I would greatly appreciate some input about what is shown in the images here. I believe it is a species of chicken of the woods called laetiporus persicinus. I did nibble a small piece and its taste and texture are just like the chicken of the woods I bought and consumed before. Only difference is that this is a dark brown color. It is very firm and spongy to the touch. No significant color change here. It just slightly browned where it was disconnected. I've also included the tree I found it on. Not sure what kind but know that's an important factor.
