  1. Found in my backyard in austin,Texas. Has been raining recently.
  2. Hello funGuys, Help me identify the following mushroom. I found the mushroom in a grassy ground near some oaks and olive trees in Italy. Temperature: 10-20 °C (50-68°F) Dark Brown cap. White stem without ring and no inner hole. White spore print. Don't bother going into details. Be as scientific and precise as you want.
  3. Dark brown bolete found under elm and hickory
  4. Hello, I thought I should check before I eat these. I am fairly sure these are oyster mushrooms since they were found on some hardwood logs (never mind the hemlocks in the background - the logs were brought from elsewhere) near Montreal mid-October. The do have that slight anise smell too. Can anyone corroborate or correct me? Thanks!
  5. Found on its own in the grass in eastern Massachusetts, USA. It’s look a bit like a marasmius oreades to me but there weren’t others nearby.

  11. I believe this to be chicken in the woods,can anyone help me identify? Harvested july 14th north ga mtns
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. Hello, First time to the forum and I'm excited already. Found these in old woodchips and old manure mix. Are they edible??
  15. 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 them into my work somehow if possible, and if so, will their vibrant color return with the seasons? Thank you so much in advance!
