  2. Mushrooms were found in Northern California, apologize for the quality, any help is appreciated.
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. This was taken during January, In Northern California. Any information is greatly appreciated, thank you.
  6. 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 sometime
  7. 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!
  8. 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
  9. 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!!
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. I was out with a friend and came across this whist out bush walking. Would anyone know what type of mushroom this is? It was old and had many insects living in it. No spore print came of it. It was found just next to the trail
  14. Hello, I found these in my yard under a trashed tarp after getting ancy about going out and really hunting lol. Middle Michigan area, brown/white caps, can’t really see gills and they’re small so I don’t even know if someone could help. Just here to learn, not trynna eat these lmao. Thanks!!
  15. Hi I am new to foraging. I didn’t think June 1st would Still sport these mushrooms and I didn’t even intend to come across them. i wanted to confirm if these look like the yellow morel?
  16. Hello all! I am quite new to this but studying vigorously, and taking the right precautions. I am also not ingesting anything I find for quite a awhile as I want to broaden my knowledge. I found this patch on an Ottawa path, shaded by a creek. It was on a fallen over tree, and I get the impression that it is a Dryads Saddle. If anyone can identify from the picture or if this mushroom has lookalikes for further study, I’d love to know!
  17. Hey everyone!! this is my second find it looks a lot more like a psychedelic one. There is bruising on the stem that’s slightly brown. The underneath of the hood is not sticky or waxy. It is growing out of wood and moss in a tropical coastal region in Kenya. Any ids would be helpful also I will try provide as much additional info as possible. They are also quite small the larger of the two being about an inch in height.
  18. 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
  19. 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 🙂🍄🤔🤞🏻
  20. Found in SW England growing on a buried tree stump. Strong mushroom smell. Any help much appreciated! 😊
  21. Anyone know if this is a Coprinellus sp or a Parasola sp?
  22. Hi mushroom hunting friends! I spent 45 mins trying to figure out an I’d on these little guys, but was totally unsuccessful! Hoping to get some help from your brains! Found on decomposing horse poop and hay, I’m up in the mountains of Idaho so spring is just popping up here. So the mushies must be some early spring fruiting type. Theres a very delicate veil and it bruises slightly with a rusty color.
  23. Hello! Can anybody identify these? I do however know the white ones in the basket are Agaricus Campestris and a Waxcap but I need help with the other. much love ✨
  24. Anybody familiar with these lil guys?
