  1. 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!!
  2. Found these growing on some old decaying wood near a lake in Virginia. Not sure what they could be any ideas would help thank you! I collected some so if more photos would help I'd be happy to post them
  3. I believe I have found some oyster mushrooms, I was again floating the river and noticed these growing out of a tree on the bank. No stems, and the gills ran all the way to the base.
  4. I finally was able to return and collect the Hen of the woods I had IDed last week! (I'll add photos to that post in the morning.) While harvesting I noticed another mushroom beginning to grow from the sides of the stump that the multiple hens were surrounding. I did not harvest any of this mushroom as I am still very uncertain of what it could be? I took a stab at it with Lion's mane optimistically bc we are starting to experience cold nights here and one source said the LM are a "winter mushroom"
  5. Hello and thank you for viewing this post and any help you may offer. I have been interested in learning how to identify mushrooms but have not had much luck making any positive IDs yet. So my desire to ID an edible mushroom has brought me here. I know this isnt a Pleurotus ostreatus due to the presence of a stem and the gills not coming down the stem but, I believe it may be a variation of an oyster mushroom. It is growing directly on a tree that was cut down early this year. I am located in West Central Virginia, in the blue ridge valley. I'd love some help from more experienced enthusiasts. Thank you!
  6. I believe I may have found my 1st hen of the woods mushroom. I was fishing in my kayak on the river today when I noticed a mushroom at the foot of a stump. I stopped and snapped a few pics, and grabbed a few to inspect further. I am excited to hear if you all think my ID is correct, if so I'm going back and collecting the rest! I took pictures of 3 separate ones all growing in about the same location, I was assuming the yellowed one was just an older specimen? A few close up pics since I'm now home
  7. These are popping up in the grassy areas between the sidewalk and road in my suburban neighborhood. Are they poisonous or should I eat them?
  8. Greetings. First time posting on this site. I live in Virginia and have been looking at mushrooms since I've been reading about medicinal mushrooms. On a recent hike I discovered these. Anyone know what they are. I know they are brackets but not sure what. Any help?
