  1. 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!! 🍄 Thank you in advance!!
  2. I came across these mushrooms on a hike today and I was curious as to what they were.. also if they’re edible because my wife has never tried fresh wild mushrooms. I was looking for chicken of the woods but found these instead.
  3. I am unsure as to what this species could be, I found them on my college campus in upstate New York for context!
  4. This is the first year I’ve seen this sort of mushroom in my yard. I noticed one about 2 weeks ago when I was mowing and then today, after a storm overnight, I noticed that over 20 had suddenly popped up. Cany anyone confirm the identity of this strange mushroom?
  5. While hiking this afternoon, I coma across many mushrooms. I collected three specimens and I have been working for several hours to identify them all. The one that seems tricky is the Amanita I found. Though it presents as an Aminita, I surely learned that identifying the exact subspecies(?). After going through many online lists and associated photos and descriptions, I was at a loss and it began to feel somewhat frustrating. So I thought I would post some guesses (and the photos) for some more experienced eyes. My overall take-away from the experience is that for general purposes, knowing it is an Amanita is enough for now and that the exact taxonomy will be saved for my self-schooling 201 class when I have more time to go through all the thousands of varieties. Also I noted that in some pics online it seems that several different looking mushrooms have been titled, "Destroying Angel" I am not sure if they are all the same subspecies or if this a a generic term for many of the Amanita? Thoughts? My macros that seem distinct: I am not denoting that the gills are free from the stipe (seems odd for an amanita but I could be misinterpreting the meaning.) and the pileus seems slightly bumpy like a strobilomyces, could it be veil remnants, perhaps? I also did not not a distinct annulus? But possibly it is just not super obvious? Guesses: Aminita Verosa Aminita Vaginata Aminita Strobiliform Amanita Ravenelii Amanita Cokeri Amanita Roanokensis *It doesn't seem to exactly fit any one of these but that could be my inexperience. OBSERVATIONS: 1) All white, white-gilled, mushroom was growing near but not on conifers. 2 ) No distinct smell to speak of. 3) Slight bumps on the pileus. 4 ) No clear evidence of veil/annulus. 5) Firm stem 6) Taller Amanita varieties near by with annulus and veil, smoother pileus. (pic included the 4th pic down that is different from the subject specimen.) 7) WHITE SPORE PRINT 😎 Shaggy looking stem 9) 2" +/- pileus 10) Southeastern U.S. summer season 11) The specimen seemed to yellow over a few hours on the way home. Any advice on this or demystifying other Amanita varieties is very much appreciated. Thank you.
  6. So i was in the backyard and touched some mushrooms and then I touched my mouth can anyone Id these and let me know if I should be worried?
  7. I was wondering if anyone is able to ID these mushrooms I found earlier today and was curious because I’ve searched multiple books and can’t find any strains that match theses
