  1. 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!
  2. Found this today growing around moist grass.
  3. 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
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Anyone know what mushroom this is? found in southeastern michigan
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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!!
  14. Walked into my shed and noticed this mushroom all of a sudden. Anyone know what it is?
  15. I just recently started to get into wild mushroom hunting and right now I’m picking everything I see I found these two different types of mushrooms on a trail by the river in my town in Michigan the lighter colored mushroom was found growing in a clump on a dead tree and the other tan topped blue stem and Gilled mushrooms were found farther down the trail off to the side in a mossy dirt area can anyone help me identify these id appreciate it !! Help me !!!
  16. Hi all! I've been a mushroom Hunter for roughly 10 years now. I've recently got more into hunting for edible Amanita mushrooms. I believe I have an Amanita amerirubecens which as you know is a type of Blusher, but I want to double check. Sorry it's somewhat destroyed, it was being bashed by my boletes I had collected! It definitely had a ring and more warts on the cap when I picked it, if that's any help. Picked in Connecticut, in a mixed wood forest. Mushroom was found growing under oaks. I know it's an Amanita at any rate! Any help in ID'ing this mushroom is appreciated!
  17. I found this walking a trail and was looking for help iding it, is it edible?
  18. Hey how is it going everyone? I found some mushroom I need help with IDing. I found these mushroom at a nearby park in Los Angeles, below I have attached a few photos. I am very new to IDing and observing mushroom, any help would be appreciated, thank you in advance! I also heard that spore prints might help, so I have started those as well and will add photos later on.
  19. I have spent many hours trying to figure out what this big boy is. I would be thrilled if anyone could ID it! LOCATION: Was found in a tight cluster of 7 other like mushrooms; point of growth was the base of a decomposing stump.(oak tree{located on a slight down-slope in the woods[bark sample in photos]}) Indiana, USA
  20. I found this on what I believe is an oak. It is still live? I cannot determine whether or not it is actually a reishi however I did find Reishis growing on a stump about 10 feet away..
  21. I found all three in a meadow mixed with hard woods. The first was growing under a living hardwood tree (maple) and the last two we're growing up by a hardwood stump. I think I have an idea of the second one but any insight would be great. Thanks!
  22. Hi, I'm new to this site and just getting into Mushroom Identification. I've read a couple threads and seen other peoples identified so here goes mine! It was growing out of the soil at the base of a large maple tree.
