  3. Hello all! I was taking a nice stroll and came across the mushrooms in open, mossy, grass. Found in West Michigan. It was located in a grassey mossy swath--about 5 feet right of the forest boundary, and 5 feet left from paved sidewalk. It rained steadily for the past few weeks. The temperature the past few days were ranging around 45-70 degree Fahrenheit. Spore prints are in the works, but looks as if it will be a darker orange or purple-black.

Kindly help me identify this species.

  15. Looking to hook up with edible mushroom foragers in or around Wewahitchka, FL. I have a fair bit of knowledge and can identify a fair amount of species with confidence. There are a few finds from my new location I needed ID'd but broke my device and don't have the pics now... Anyways I need some like minded buddies to hunt, trade, and share with! I'm mainly a green thumb but want to broaden my horizons as much as possible. I've grown some mushrooms before but not to a massive degree and want to get reacquainted after several years now too. Please someone out there let's go looking! DShroomGuy
  16. What mushroom grows on the side of a brown wood house between the window seal and paneling in Suburban Birmingham (See the attached pictures)? These are all located close together and with my limited understanding of mushrooms I think they are all the same.
  17. I believe these are old chewed-on pluteus cervinas that were found in Florida growing right next to amanita bisporigera from the ground. It was found alone.
  18. I am confident in this ID- Clathrus Columnatus. This was really cool to stumble upon but did not smell friendly. It was found next to a downed tree growing by itself in late December.
  19. Hi, all, I am new to mushrooms and don't know much. I found this mushroom in a grassy field next to a creek in Palm Harbor, Fla. The field has some wildlife, such as bird species and groundhog types, but it also is a dog-walking area. Mushrooms are somewhat common in this area. Any help in identifying it would be appreciated. Is it dangerous, can it be used for cooking, does it have psychedelic properties? Many thanks.
  20. 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
  21. 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..
  22. I live in New Hampshire, and I found a wide variety of mushrooms in my yard, I am hoping someone could help me identify them?
  23. Hello everyone, can anyone one tell me what type of mushroom is growing in my yard based on the information/pictures below? I near Nashville, TN. The mushrooms were found in my yard in partially shaded areas under two trees. They grow in clusters and are very short (barely at the level of the top of the grass). They turn brownish as they age and are silimar in color to the back side of falling leaves when they're new. I tried to get a spore print by pressing the gills on white paper but the transfer was mostly clear with a few grayish smudges. I don't think I have a very distinct sense of smell when it comes to mushrooms but they smelled similar to a portebella in my opinion. I would like to know if these mushrooms are harmful to pets. I have no intentions on eating them.
  24. My dad and I found so many of these tonight. We left much more than we took as well, as it is a public space and others might stumble upon them (also so they can spore). They grew for the most part under beech and maple, usually on slopes which were grassy with little else as far as vegetation. I think they're all the same. They seem to smell sweet and fruity (I can see why they say apricots but the smell also reminds me of earwigs if you have ever smelled them) the lighting makes them look less orange but they have an orange tint.
