    Last find of the year

    I'm new here. I have mushroom hinted in Tennessee. But I've never seen a puffball. I have no clue what they are. They are edible?

  7. I took advantage of warm weather last Sunday (64 degrees in Ellettsville/Spencer) to do some late-season hiking and collect a limited supply of the Indiana mycophagist's last refuge -- the Pear-Shaped Puffball (Lycoperdon pyriforme). See https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Tay4HOhiLx0MtCDYLItl4LvyCPfidZgU Despite all my efforts in the field, I still had to meticulously tear each little mushroom in half and throw away about a third of the ones that were showing signs of sporulating. Not sure what I'll do with them yet, but I ought to do something special. Bruce

    Help identifying?

    This mushroom is too old for me to get a positive ID from just a photo, but it does look like an old laetiporus. See if it comes back next year.

    Help identifying?

    My husband found this on a downed tree walking in the woods. I am most definitely a novice when it comes to mushrooms but am curious as tho what this is. Apologies for the bad photos, I can take better ones if needed.

    Are the Shitaki?

    Not shitaki that much i know, not sure what they are.

    Are the Shitaki?

    Found these in my yard in South Bend. Growing over the root area of a dead Oak tree. Thank for any advice on identification

    Fairy Ring?

    Agaricus campestris should have pink or brown gills and prominent remnants of a partial veil. Spore print is brown. I can't really tell gill color or other details from this photo. Could be a Meadow Mushroom, maybe not. But to answer your question...yes, they sometimes grow in fairy rings. I have some that usually come up every year on my property. Didn't this year, though. September was too dry. Bruce

    Fairy Ring?

    Found this in a fairy ring but it doesn't look like a fairy ring mushroom. Any suggestions. It looks more like a common field mushroon Agaricus campestris. Do they also grow in rings?

    Certification

    Is anyone in northern Indiana able to certify mushrooms for commercial sale until I can obtain the certification? I own a hydroponic mirogreens business and have always foraged for my own foods and I have Chef clients who are interested in mushrooms, but the health department requires certified products... Thank you!

    Need help to ID

    Pictures are hard for me, but I think you have oyster mushrooms. Spore print should be white to lilac grey. Best to use a dark background.
  17. Can someone identify these? They where growing in our yard on a root of a magnolia tree. I think they may be shelf mushrooms but not sure.

    Hen of the woods

    Yes I do, but found these west of me in the star city area. We just got another 3 inches of rain the first part of this week. This may be one of the best fall seasons we've had for a while.

    Hen of the woods

    I think I hate you both. :-) You must live in northern Indiana. Here west of Indy, total rainfall accumulation for September was right around 0.2 inches. Very disappointing from a mushrooming standpoint, especially compared to last year. Bruce

    Hen of the woods

    Nice find! I got 42.5 pounds last weekend. You now have the same problem as me. Got to freeze, eat some, dry some and make Maitake jerky with some. Hard to be prepared for a 50 pound haul, huh?

    New mushroom

    This cup mushroom is not familiar to me. ID help please? https://drive.google.com/open?id=16XdrPQ3ikGYGj7p0-3nvX8qvWCTKoV7I It appears to be growing up from the roots of a dogwood tree whose stump I burned out last year. If you watch them carefully you'll see little puffs of white spores coming out periodically. Pretty cool. Bruce P.S. The "Indiana Mushroom Species" section of this web site is not working anymore.

    Todays finds

    I went hunting today for a few hours and found little to nothing; one cluster of honeys that I chose to leave behind. We could use some of that rain you guys up north are getting.
