  1. Found in my backyard in austin,Texas. Has been raining recently.
  2. Found these guys in Northern VT yesterday (10/6). They were growing along the forest floor on decaying logs (not entirely sure what kind of logs). The spore print was a milky white. Seems more like Angel’s Wing to me but I’m still very new to foraging.
  3. Found this little guy in my moms garden in some wood chips after heavy rain. It has kind of a fuzzy brown top, feels dry. Black spore print. Grew in a small cluster but they did not appear attached at the bottom
  4. Hi, I was looking for some help identifying this mushroom. Found growing in MA in a lawn. Gills appeared brown to black, though one specimen had pinkish gills (perhaps less mature?). Spores are light/dark brown. They have a noticeable mushroom scent similar to shiitake, though they do not look, or grow, like a shiitake. Thanks
  5. Lots of rain. New arrivals in the backyard.
  6. Hello funGuys, Help me identify the following mushroom. I found the mushroom in a grassy ground near some oaks and olive trees in Italy. Temperature: 10-20 °C (50-68°F) Dark Brown cap. White stem without ring and no inner hole. White spore print. Don't bother going into details. Be as scientific and precise as you want.
  7. Hi there, I live in Texas and have been seeing a lot of these "porcini" pop up after the rain. Being a huge fan of the way foraged mushrooms taste, I'd be really interested in finding out if these are indeed an edible species. Characteristics Found on lawns and mulch near live oaks and under garden shrubs. The cap is a velvety, suede-brown and the rest of the mushroom is a lurid yellow Most of the specimens I found are relatively young and retain a button-like appearance--uncertain what the mature cap would look like The pores are small and dense, and the concavity of the cap makes it difficult to get a print Netting found toward the top of the stem No redness or color change at the base of the mushroom Upon handling or slicing, the mushroom quickly bruises blue, which fades to an indigo-gray. Marking the cap and the pores underneath produces blue bruising The bruising is darker indigo at the base and the cap, with lighter bruising at the stem After some digging, I suspect it might be Boletus luridellus (examples) or neoboletus pseudosulphureus. But the stem bases are not at all red, so I'd hate to eat them and find out that they are actually the poisonous Boletus huronensis. 👉🏼 Any suggestions for other tests I should do to be confident in my identification? Thanks in advance! Photos
  8. Hello, I thought I should check before I eat these. I am fairly sure these are oyster mushrooms since they were found on some hardwood logs (never mind the hemlocks in the background - the logs were brought from elsewhere) near Montreal mid-October. The do have that slight anise smell too. Can anyone corroborate or correct me? Thanks!
  9. I thought these were aborted entalomas until I turned them over. Found in clusters along a piney trail in NH. The fruit is slightly firm and has a woody aroma. The caps are between 1-3 inches in diameter, and have very short stems that raise the cap, just off the ground.
  10. I found like 20 to 30 of these growing by my cabin, underneath a copse of pine and mixed deciduous. The ground was moist, mostly dirt, scattered decaying leaves, pine needles, and branches. I looked some online... but Idk anything about mushrooms. It looks similar to amanita muscaria, amanita flavo., and amanita frost., Can anyone identify which one i found?
  11. Found in eastern Massachusetts a few days ago after a rain storm. I’m not sure what variety of bolete, quite possibly suillus? Any help would be great thank you.
  12. Hello friends, I found some mushrooms today in Washington DC, and at first I was sure they were summer oyster mushrooms so I picked them up and took them home. I sat down to do my proper research when I got home, and now I’m a little worried I might have found angel wing mushrooms instead.
  13. Hey guys, I have found this fungi in a grassland in late may earlt june. It is not located in heights or forests. Could someone help me identify this mushroom? Sorry if I have failed to comply with the format of this site. My first post here. Thanks.
  14. Hey, i already posted this topic on another forum page yet i dont know if it was the right one! My question is, is this a purple stinkhorn? And if is, it is edible right? Anyone has any knowledge about this mushroom? Thank you so much for your time!
  15. Mushrooms were found in Northern California, apologize for the quality, any help is appreciated.
  16. 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!
  17. Hi! I'm very new to mushroom finding/foraging and though I'm not at all ready to eat any of my finds, I'd love help identifying this black mushroom I found on a walk today. I believe it was growing nearby to some oak trees. Its cap is black/dark brown in color and the pores are black. When broken apart the profile of the pores are grey and the flesh pale grey, with the pores and flesh turning reddish before going fully dark grey/black. I hate to assume it is a T. alboater but wondered if someone could point me in a good direction for finding out what it might be? Thank you so much! I'm excited to continue learning about this fascinating kingdom!
  18. This was taken during January, In Northern California. Any information is greatly appreciated, thank you.
  19. Hello everyone ! I am new to the forum, and new to the mushroom hunt ! Today it was my first one, and I found 2 species I'm not sure at all what they were. Can you help me identify them? I found this species in a big sheep pasture. They were growing just next to a small river, around 300m above sea level. They grew directly on the soil, around some wood debris, just next to patches of nettles. There were sheep dung nearby, but they didn't grow directly on it. As you can see, it has a cream to light brown cap, sometimes brown with a white patch in the center. The cap is sometimes bell-shaped sometimes a little bit wavy. Its brown gills are attached to its thin stem. Its overall size is quite small. I didn't have the chance to make a spore print. It smelled like a regular mushroom, a soft earthy scent, and it was really delicate and fragile. Can you help me identify it? I'm not only interested to know if it is toxic or edible, but I would really like to know the specific species Thank you in advance !
  20. I’m just getting started looking for mushrooms, and I found what I believe are chanterelles. Any input would be great. Found about 5 loosely together in almost bare dirt on a hillside with a lot of oaks. Thanks!
  21. I found them in a field of grass and cows, in late August. What type of mushroom is it? The spore print seems black. Thanks
  22. 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!!
  23. I've never foraged a mushroom before, but feel like this is either Laetiporus cincinatus or Laetiporus sulphureus. Can anyone help confirm my suspicion? Found on the ground on the base of an oak tree that had seen better days but was still alive towards the top. I live in Massachusetts. It feels damp to the touch and is roughly 10inches across and weighs about 3-5 lbs.
  24. I was walking my dog in my neighborhood here in north-central NC and came across a large polypore about 5 feet from the base of a small tree, growing in grass. I later went back with my field guide but forgot my camera so photographed it when i got home. Underside is light buff color continuing over edge of cup shaped edges about 5mm before turning to brown in the cup. Pores are small enough that I can't see them with my crappy magnifying glass. Smells very fresh, mushroomy. Bruises light brown as can be seen in photos. Black-staining polypore (Meripulus giganteus) is the closest I could find to it but maybe it's not in my field guide. There were a couple other small specimens growing within several feet but this was the largest. About 2 pounds, 10" across. Let me know what you think. Thanks for your help and thanks for letting me join the community. Meripilus sumstinei? Any thoughts. I want to eat it. Garrett.
  25. I have mushrooms growing with my spring onion in a pot on my balcony and I'm curious what type they are. The one in the photos was about 3cm tall
