  5. Found these little things in a holler near my house. Don't recognize them so I was hoping for a bit of help
  6. Hi, I found these mushrooms in Cornwall a few days ago. They were in a grassy field not near any trees. There were about 8 different types of mushroom in the area. You are not able to see the gills without tearing some of the mushroom cap off. Are you able to help identify it? Thanks
  7. Hi, i am pretty new to this mushroom hunting business and could use some help with an id. I found these growing under pine(in UK)I had thought it could be leocopaxillus tricolor but the cap Is more a grey colour. The gills rub off easily leaving a smooth surface on the underside of the cap. Many thanks!
  8. 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
  9. I found these mushrooms growing on the forest floor at about 3000 ft elevation in the Washington Cascades. Going through my field guide, I came up with matsutake, but am unsure as the guide strongly emphasized ID by scent. The mushrooms have a pronounced and distinct spicy odor, but I haven't smelled matsutake's before and it also seems on the early side for them to be fruiting. Can anyone help point me in the right direction? Habitat: Where does it grow? Mid-montane douglas/fir-hemlock forest. About 3000 feet elevation in northern Cascade range mountains of Washington state. Habitat photo below What does it grow on? soil, did not seem to be growing out of buried wood Gills: Gills are attached, but have notch at connection with the stem. White, becoming light tan with age. White spore print Stem: Length 4", diameter 1", white with a ring, what appears to be remnants of a partial veil below the ring and on cap. Veil remnants thin, scaly and brown, firm texture, solid stem with fibers. No evidence of a volva, but did have some dark root-like things growing out of the base. Cap: Diameter about 6", color white with some tan to brown scaly membranous parts on the top, texture firm, similar to the stem, cap starts out convex, becomes wavy to flat. Bruising: None observed. I had a cut half of a mushroom sitting on the counter for a couple days, and the cut surface was still bright white. Other information: Spicy scent that continued to be noticeable for several days in the mushroom that was sitting on my counter.
  10. Very new to collecting boletes, I looked through my field guide and wasn't quite seeing these. I found these in Westminster SC. Pores bruise orange/brown. Not much of a smell beyond the usual smell of dirt. Any help with ID would be greatly appreciated!
  11. Found this today growing around moist grass.
  12. 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
  13. 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?
  14. So I'm skeptical to call this a hen, I've found and identified them last fall but I just came across a mushroom at work that really screams Maitake to me but I am unable to find any reports or sources online of ppl finding them this early.
  15. 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.
  16. So each year I find this clump of mushrooms growing here in our yard while I'm mowing. I believe there is dead tree stump under them all.
  17. Anyone know what mushroom this is? found in southeastern michigan
  18. I have these growing on trees in the woods around my house here in GA. Right now, the one pictured is about the size of a toddler's head with a yellow tint. I've seen them grow to basketball size and they tend to turn more white as they age. I wanted to try to get more info on these, as I've heard they're both tasty and have medicinal uses. I usually don't bother with wild mushrooms as I don't have the expertise to feel assured that they are what I believe them to be, but since I've read Lion's Mane has no lookalike neither poisonous or otherwise, I feel more at ease and curious about them, but as stated, I'm no expert and don't really know if any of this is true. I've also heard there are several varieties? These tend to regrow every early spring in the same places, always on living trees in the woods.
  19. Found the strangest green mushrooms on a hike with my boyfriend. The texture was spongy. They were located in the woods on a fallen pine. I didnt get a spore print.
  20. I have this interesting and quite large (3 to 4 ft in length, seems like) orange parchment hanging around my local conservation in the stripped bark of a pine tree (my apologies for not being skilled enough to nail the species of the tree). Up close to it the entire fruiting body seemed pretty meaty as if it would make a great mushroom head on the forest floor, not at all like a jelly fungus or other parchments I've seen. I didn't have time to collect much on it so if there is enough interest I could return to it tomorrow and see what else I could collect that would help. I refrained from removing any of it because there was a stern sign that said $500 fine for "disturbing wildlife" which could mean a lot of things. Any help is greatly appreciated! Here are the pics. Edit: This is in southwest Virginia near the Carolina border. Elevation is 600 to 700 meters.
  21. Not sure if im doing this correct, this is my first post! My fiance and I found these guys hiking today, we are novice mushroom hunters. Just hoping to get ids if possible. Happy new year to all! This mushroom was found near fallen palm. Mushroom #2 Found near pine. This one is sort of a dull yellow/brown with dark pink gills and meat when cut open. #3 off white with Darker spot on center of cap. Lighter Gills and stalk. From fallen pine #4 orage mushrooms growing on the side of a log, don't remember smooch kind. Harder texture, no gills, thck orange dust when rubbed. No gills. #5 small dirty whie balls filled with brown stuff
  22. Found these while walking the woods near my house. Growing from some very old dead wood on the ground. They do seem to be growing from the wood. I can certainly provide more photos and other information if needed. Thanks for your help!!
  23. Walked into my shed and noticed this mushroom all of a sudden. Anyone know what it is?
