  1. Found a couple patches of these in the lawn. I’m in upstate NY about an hour south of Syracuse. Are these to young to identify?
  2. I came across this white mushroom in the woods while hiking in southern Ohio and I am new to mushroom identification / hunting. Does anyone have any idea of what this mushroom species this is? Appreciate the help, Thanks! 😀
  3. Found in fern canyon near eureka/orick California
  4. My mom found these and brought them home, are these reishi? They are hard and shiny and not porous like beefstake
  5. it grows on roots of living trees, Brazilian species, please help identify. The tiny one broke apart from the cluster of three growing together because it so attacked to the living wood from the tree it could never be taken away one piece. The tree is located alongside a road in an urban area, one can hardly ever spot a growing mushroom, it is such an occasion to find one. Would you be so kind to give me any hints which mushroom it might be?
  6. Hi! I am new to mushroom hunting. I came across these growing on a fallen log on a trail in SW Michigan. Are they golden oysters? Are they edible?
  7. These were found growing on grass in a bunch, maybe 10-12 of them. They have the tell tale brown spot on the top but I don’t want to risk anything. It is one of these for sure; panaeolus cinctulus Psilocybe subtropicalis gymnopilus sp. Because of where I live it won’t be any other. Please let me know if it’s any of the above if not I won’t use it
  8. Just found these on a bike ride at a location where I have harvested oyster mushrooms before, but I wanted to check here first! They have the licorice smell and were found growing in an overlapping pattern on the bark of a dead, fallen tree. They had some beetles and white worms in the gills, but they were able to be cleaned out. None of the mushrooms were bug-eaten. Is it safe to say these are oyster mushrooms? Thank you for your help!
  9. Hello all! Hope you are having a good day today. I stumbled upon this magnificent log hosting small clusters of these bright orange-yellow mushrooms in Autumn last year (North Wales, UK). However when I drove past them again in the winter they had shriveled up and turned a light brown color. I have had someone tell me that they could be part of the Flammulina Velutipes species but I would just like to receive a second opinion. Also, I would like to know if they could somehow be preserved nicely? I like to work with fungi and flora in my art projects so it would be lovely to incorporate
  10. Hi guys! Just found these little guys on the north island of New Zealand around the Te Puke area. Think they may be liberty caps but not sure - can anyone help ID? Thank you!!
  11. Found this one in northern California, in mid January. any help is appreciated thank you. I apologize for the blurriness of the second shot. this mushroom seemed to not have gills and be rounded at the bottom.
  12. Interested in knowing what these mushrooms are.. Found in the depths of a pine tree forest in a tight cluster. They stood out for their really bright green tint to them, doesn't show that well in the pictures. Any help is invaluable! Many thanks
  13. Found these in the woods near a lake in boothbay, ME. They were growing in a moss patch. The weather of the past week has been pretty chaotic. On Monday it was 90° then the temp dropped to 80 on Tuesday. Wendy’s was about 70°. Thursday and today (Friday) were rainy and cold. Accidental repost lol
  14. I Found these on buffalo dung after two nights of rain. in the stems they are very watery. the whole mushroom is small and thin with no blue bruising.
  15. Are these mushrooms poisonous or edible or something else?
  16. Hello fellow mushrooms aficionados. I took a short hike through the woods today and came upon various mushrooms. I carry a mushroom identification guide in order to be able to identify the mushrooms that I come upon but I'm not 100% sure if I made a correct identification. Location: Eastern Europe, deciduous forest, limestone soil. The mushroom has tubes not gills, it's funnel shaped, grows on fallen branches, has a strong 'typical' mushroom smell, it's smooth at touch. It's been eaten by insects that also made those tubes their home. I identified them as Laetiporus Sulphureus al
  17. Found a bunch of these today Double checking to see if they're mica's Very fragile, dark gills, slimy to touch, found on a rotting tree stump (don't know the type possibly eucalyptus)
  18. I wonder if these are edible? They smell soooo good. Growing out of an old tree root in the backyard. All this moisture in NC has brought out the fungus among us!
  19. I'm relatively new to mushroom foraging, found this guy while mowing today here in Clemson SC. It was in the grass near a lobolly pine. Has some worn down worts or scales on it. There was no stem, it is pretty firm on the outside and very firm on the inside. Looks like a delicious layered chocolate cake.. Smells earthy but no overwhelming smell. Haven't yet been able to find any pictures of a truffle or and earth ball like this. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I had already cut it in half before taking these pictures Upside down Cut in half
  20. Mushrooms are more vibrant than the camera picked up. I edited the colors in PS until they matched as closely as possible. Found amongst coniferous forest of mixed larches, pines, firs, and spruces, plus alders and a few deciduous trees, and within 100 feet of several other varieties of Jack boletes. Specifically, they were growing in leaf litter with rotting wood, somewhat different than what the other boletes seem to prefer. Staining is fairly swift and somewhat vibrant, fading to a dingy blue/brown bruise. Stipes are smooth, vibrant, and dappled with pin-prick sized brown d
  21. Hello, i recently found this mushroom growing in some mulch on a hike just south of San Francisco. Could some one help me id it?
  22. Hello, i also recently found this mushroom growing in some mulch on a hike just south of San Francisco. It was near the other one I posted. Could some one help me id it?
  23. I know very little about mushroom ID. Trees and plants are my forte. Found this little beauty on a group dog walk (hence no gloves - I washed and sanitised my hands straight after - don’t worry) so did not have my Id book. Not that it would have helped as I’ve been scouring the internet for months. I cannot let this one go. Found: 5th August, mixed woodland but found in a coniferous patch. Near Aboyne, Aberdeenshire. Appearance: earthy brown cap, bright red to bright yellow stipe (this stumped all my google searches) staining bright blue turning dark blue/black. Yellow f
