    1. Gem Studded Puffball: great edible, but only before spore production (fluffy white interior, once the insides are yellow its no good)

    2. Boletus, Suiles family

    3. King Boletus, prized edible

    4. Rosy Russula, not edible

    Is this what shrooms look like after one eats some psilocybin laden shrooms? Holy Warped fungi, batman.



    Kinda looks like brain matter. Your brain on drugs.

    How do you identify the King vs. the Orange Cap, and how the orange cap vs. the fibrillosum? I found a ton of what I thought were orange cap last week, then later decided they might be fib. I know they are all edible, but my AR side requires identification.

    The fib is the "red-capped scaber-stalk" (RC) and grows with certain trees like the King Boletus (KB). The major differences are 1. The color of the cap of the RC is deeper red 2. The stalk of the RC has scabers, the KB has a smooth stalk 3. The RC stains blue-purple when you cut it, the KB does not.

    You'll be able to spot the difference 10 yards away after a while. Both are good edibles, there are no real KB look-alikes that are not edible.
