  1. Today
  2. If they don't smell like Matsutakes, they probably aren't. Check out Tricholoma caligatum at MushroomExpert.com: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/tricholoma_caligatum.html .
  3. Thank you both for the reply very interesting!
  4. Unfortunately I won't get down there until December or January, when the Sacramentos will be buried in snow.
  5. Thanks Dave, still yet to find a hen. Did well with chickens this year but still have yet to ever find a hen. Found some massive oaks today bit nothing. Getting a bit discouraged I must admit
  6. Yesterday
  7. There were oaks nearby too, but definitely under a stand of hemlock. You can see the hemlock needle deposits on their caps surface. Psammicola seems to have hemlock as associate too. http://www.fungikingdom.net/myco-facts-by-dianna-smith/lactarius--lactifluus-prese.html
  8. @clamp connectionIt seems like I am almost always a week off. Bugs seem to get to the yummy ones pretty fast. Prime hunting now btw. Hit me up if you would like to go hunting. Zero boletes found this year so far. Rains are late this year but it has been wet for 2 weeks.🤫
  9. I've been hunting mushrooms off and on for years and this is the first year I've ever seen black trumpets and the first year I've found large numbers of any chanterelle. The best way to find chanterelles in my opinion is just to go out and enjoy looking at all the mushrooms. As mentioned above they can be very spotty. You might find none at many similar places and then suddenly lots of them. You are not doing anything wrong. They are rarely easy.
  10. Nice! Such a beautiful area. I never get to enjoy mushroom season there...
  11. Its challenging at first. Just keep at it. Lots of miles need to be covered to find prime spots at times. Don’t get discouraged - keep plugging away!
  12. Thanks all for your help. We're going to let some mature and I'll post some more pictures
  13. The first pic is definitely a bird's nest fungus, possibly Grey Bird's Nest (Cyanthus olla). The second picture may be a type of oyster, but looks like Angel's Wings (Phyllotus porrigens). These fruit on conifers; is that a conifer in the photo? These appear to be very thin fleshed, as are Angel's Wings.
  14. Thank you. Yes, they are everywhere right now. I think they are Russula emetica. The last one I tasted was like pepper. I don’t bother picking them, but they are really nice to look at. Today was a good day, as soon as I walked into the woods, there was 2 boletes bigger than my hand. Plus it’s always nice to have a little dirt on my shoes, it’s the only land I own.
  15. MushroomExpert.com says: "Mycorrhizal with oaks and possibly other hardwoods", so probably something else. What, I don't know. http://www.mushroomexpert.com/lactarius_psammicola.html
  16. There is a chewed up rusilla in the background. Nice photos.
  17. Found under Hemlock in southwestern ontario, these orange capped lactarius I am finding again for past two years. Now, theres no latex to see, looked on youngun and old ones, no green tinging, and they are more white on the undersides than orange as other lactarius I have identified. The largest cap i found was 6 inches across.They tasted acrid to me, so did not collect. Psammicola?
  18. Hello!! found these in my grassy field. An espresso coloured spore print?? Any ideas?
  19. I didn't take any to get a spore print from on the ones I found early September. I did print the ones from my firewood logs and it was white. I'll take a couple to print when I get back there tomorrow, if they are still there.
  20. I agree with Dave. Could be mica caps (Coprinus micaceus), based on the glistening particles on the young tan one that have disappeared on the older ones. If you come back in a few days you will possibly find they will all be autolyzed "melted".
  21. Really nice photos of some beautiful Chanterelles. Don't know this species. What is the location?
  22. Species of what are called "Inky caps". Notice how the caps are dissolving into a black substance near the margins, and how the gills are black. Probably a species of Coprinellus.
  23. I was out mushroom hunting today, and came across some large chanterelles, actually the meatiest ones I have ever picked. One thing that threw me off is the lack of fruity fragrance, can anyone help me out with this one? It was growing with beech and hemlock.
  24. Species of Pholiota... maybe P. aurivella or P. limonella. https://mushroomexpert.com/pholiota_limonella.html
  25. If not B. edulis, then a species very close... King Boletes.
