    I have a sophisticated method for determining the edibility of a mushroom. If it came out of the supermarket, I'll eat it! ;0)

    Howdy Pig -- those bright red ones are the (in)famous Amanita genus, possibly muscaria species, or similar. The white "warts" already fell away, or were washed off in rain -- which keeps the red from fading in bright sun:
    Amanita muscaria var. flavivolvata (MushroomExpert.Com)

    And, Hobine: You've got a Sparassis variety there; aren't they great!:

    Ah, so although a couple of them look different they are in fact the same mushrooms? What about the orange radar-dish, is that the same one too?

    Mushrooms....Post your pics...

    I known nothing about mushrooms other than maybe white button and portabella. I happened upon this one yesterday on my ride. I don't know what it is but I resisted the temptation to think it was a soccer ball--it was about the right size and shape for a swift kick

    People try to avoid running over them so others can enjoy. I have seen sticks placed around them to keep riders away.

    The one in my last post is ON the trail, but off to one side fortunately. The year before last they were there and unharmed all season. It is in a state park where it would be illegal to harvest, but heck, it's surprising someone didn't accidentally or "accidentally" hit them.

    I want to thank everyone who respects natural beauty and goes out of their way to allow others to enjoy it.

    Sure, but if you're moving at a bit of a rate it would be easy to run over them before you know it. The bit of trail where I found these isn't very fast, it's flat, but I was still at the mushrooms before I realised what they were. How long do they live?

    Heh. That Outside mag quiz annoys me, though virtually all Amanitas -- easily identifiable with the "bulb" volva at its base, which may be buried -- are bad news, though beautiful.
    Only the Chaterelle (Cantharellus sp.) is easily identifiable out of that group. The King Bolete is also kinda easy, but you still have to have a sharp eye and know exactly what to look for (though, none of its lookalikes will kill you). The Trich (the fabled US matsutake) is pretty hard, except for its smell...

    They are on a straight and wide part of the trail, and they had sticks around them, and I guess people try to avoid the big tree and its roots anyway. And they are so big, there is no way you can not see them. But still, I am surprised that with hundreds of people going by there, not all of them mountain bikers, that they were left alone.

    How long do they live?
    I understand that mushrooms in general come and go quickly. Collins can confirm no doubt But this one was there for 4 or 5 months -- 'til frost as I recall. It stopped growing and got ratty-looking eventually, but lived a long time after that.

    I saw one when racing this summer that is HUGE -- the size of a car tire. Biggest I've ever seen. I didn't have my cell phone on me. But I hope to get back before it gets cold and hopefully it is still in pretty good shape. This one is well off the trail up a steep mountainside, so my guess is that no one has vandalized it.

    When I was in my teens one of the fads that came around regularly was eating 'magic mushrooms'. I don't know what kind of mushrooms they were but they had hallucinogenic effects of some kind. I remember a guy in my biology class being on them one afternoon. He was all giggly and talking rubbish but amazingly the teacher didn't notice.

    Another incident I heard about was a guy in my year giving magic mushrooms to his dog! A black Labrador. It was only him and a couple of his mates in the house and dog went berserk. It was attacking them so they shut it in the living-room, and it destroyed the room! Idiots.

    I counted about 90 mushrooms in this patch. Growing right on the trail. Fortunately for them it is doubletrack with plenty of room to get around them.

    Ladmo -- these look beautiful. I guess you're in the PNW?

    I can't make a good guess to ID these... just too many lookalikes from what I can see. Potentially very interesting species...

    Third photo looks like it could be a Pholiota squarrosa

    My biology teacher would love this thread. I remember coming into class and he'll be talking about the pictures of fungi he took on his run that morning. I thought he was pretty crazy, but know when I look at fungi I kinda appreciate the little things.

    The way I do it is the ones at the grocery store are edible, and all the others are not.

    This ^^^^

    Although looking at the numerous wild shrooms out in the damp forest is an amazing experience. There's no way I'd eat any without knowing they were FDA approved.

    Just do a Google search of death by wild mushroom ingestion. The list goes on and on.

    Dry as it has been, there was a little rain last week, and on northern facing hillsides there are a few fungi. Saw these guys today. One was pretty big.

    Yo, Repack -- Nice Shaggy Mane! -- Those are easy to ID; and if you catch them in that youthful state, and cook them quickly, they're pretty good. Butter and garlic is easiest and best:

    Saw this thing in Oregon a couple days ago. Eastern Oregon at around 5,000 ft elevation. Never seen anything quite like this before, but I think it is some kind of mushroom. Looks like cauliflower, actually.

    That's a fine young Clavulina genus... maybe cristata. Once they get older, those cauliflowers get all long and fingery -- looks more like undersea coral.

    Good find there -- they're Reishi or a relative, aka "varnish shelf"; a good bit of research is going into figuring out the medicinal properties of these, which have been used for a long time, typically in Asian areas.
    It's from Ganoderma genus, likely Ganoderma tsugae, since it's growing on a conifer. Check it out:

    Finest batch of white king boletes I have ever eaten, new crop, sliced thin and sauted in butter until the edges are crisp.

    Nice finds ya'll. Esp. those ceps! Just curious, what region are you in?

    And Jeff -- That bottom one is a young lil Chicken of the Woods, Laetiporus species:
    Sulphur Shelf or Chicken Mushroom (Laetiporus sulphureus) - AmericanMushrooms.com

    The top one I'm not positive about, but I'm guessing a Meripilus sumstinei:

    It's almost time of year for a similar mushroom, the Maitake, which is just as tasty as those king boletes, and even easier to identify:
    Hen of the Woods, Maitake or Sheepshead Mushroom (Grifola frondosa) - AmericanMushrooms.com

    Thanks Collins, appreciate the help.....I thought one of them might have been a Chicken of the Woods but the bright color put some doubt in my mind.....in last few days it has faded to a much lighter color......thanks again .

    I'm trying to identify these, they were growing under ponderosa pine, but in dirt, in a connected group, like honey mushrooms, of which I think they are a type.

    Hrmph. Do a spore print on aluminum foil, and make sure it's white. Then, you can probably be sure it's the "ringless honey mushroom" -- Armillaria tabescens
    Where in the U.S. did you find these? Ponderosa, so west coast?

    Of course, don't eat unless positively ID'd by a professional, etc, &c.

    Here's an awesome site for mushroom dorkery: Mushroom Observer: Name: Armillaria tabescens (Scop.) Emel

    And:

    I'm in northern New Mexico, the Zuni Mts. I concluded tabescens also, I've been mushrooming for almost 50 years, btw, so I'm kind of the expert for this mountain. It's a phenomenal mushroom year here, usually much drier. Thanks Collins.

    Cool finds -- those look like their from a place that got a bunch of early rain, then dried up. What else do you typically find there?

    We've had record setting early rains this spring and pre-monsoon summer, and it's not letting up. Our mainstay is the white king bolete, B. barrowsii, and puffballs. In heavy moisture years I find a few chanterelles, some clavariadelphus truncatus. Shaggy Manes are common along the roads but usually too sandy to eat. I learned a lot from this guy, who unfortunately died a few years ago. I grew up in Michigan, where we collected a variety of mushrooms but the morels were the most prized. My neighbor was an expert mushroomer, we commonly tried unknown varieties and I know how to do that safely. The high desert mountains, where I've lived since 1968, are interesting because they tend to have isolated populations of flora that are somewhat different from each other and elsewhere, and make identification a challenge.

    For me, the ones at the store are edible, and all the others are not. I do sometimes wonder though if I'm missing out on some good treats, but not about to find out.

    Beautiful morels up top there. And the Amanita and Agaricus sp. have that glowy white autumnal vibe, don't they?

    Wow -- nice hedgehogs! Those are one of my favorites.

    Ladmo -- interesting flush there. Looks like that's on a downed tree. You're in the PNW? Could be a crop of the famous "Big Laughing Gym" (Gymnopilus spectablis)... just maybe. Would need a closer look to tell.

    Yes, downed log. Seems like any downed, partially decomposed, moss covered log is likely to have mushrooms like those growing out of it. This is 15 - 20 miles east of Seattle - maybe 500 ft elevation.
