    Help Identify please

    Possibly Ganoderma sps on top and possibly Turkey tail on bottom. An under shot of most fungi along with a photo of the top will greatly assist in identification.
  6. Two different mushrooms I came across hunting for Morels on our property, SE Indiana, please help identify...

    Identify Please

    Go to false mushrooms demystified and post this. doesn't look like eseulenta to me. Most likely G. caroliniana. They will guide you properly. Most likely edible with precancerous. And maybe no toxins in this if cooked thoroughly. Get their advice.

    Identify Please

    That's cool. Looks like a false morel. I've never found one before, but have seen a lot of pictures of them. Gyromitra esculenta can be deadly if eaten raw and still toxic if cooked.
  12. Would like to get input on name of this and if it’s edible. Thanks 5:00 pm 3-21-20

    Want to grow native mushrooms

    Good resources I've found for this include http://www.mushroomvideos.com/ and https://fungi.com/. Be sure to get your free catalog from Fungi Perfecti...it contains useful information. Perhaps the best book on the subject is The Mushroom Cultivator by Paul Stamets, available for $35 at fungi.com. HTH, Bruce
  14. I'm looking to grow and find out about native mushrooms in Indiana. I have a large Backyard with some trees, and some roots. How best is it to sprout native edible, and non and tell them apart. Partially for eating and for breaking down soil for compost. I know very little about mushrooms except morels, and have had access to a shiitake log in the past- any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Package received. Will update once I have more info. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/39546019

    Hypholoma Sublateritium

    I don’t actually. Only took a quick picture from the top view. Any ideas what else it might be though?

    Hypholoma Sublateritium

    I do not think so. Would you have a shot of the underside (gills and stem)?

    Chaga??

    My initial take on the latest round of images is that it would not be Chaga. I am still waiting on getting some results from the OP. I will update here once I have them. Chaga has been reported on a variety of trees. It is just most common on birch, but can appear elsewhere.

    Chaga??

    Cool. Thanks Chris. I'm curious to know if the properties are the same (or similar) as Chaga found on Birch, Aspen and Poplar, being an immune system booster, with antioxidants and effective at fighting cancer. They were both found on white oak trees, being the second and third fruiting bodies I've found on oaks, all within 100 yards of each other.

    Chaga??

    I'll be sure Steve gets a look at this today most likely and have him get back with you.
  21. Located these in Clark County Forest today. Can someone confirm for me?
  22. Hoosierfunguy

    Chaga??

    Okay, found a couple of these
  23. Hoosierfunguy

    Chaga??

    Cool. Any advice on the best way to harvest it, so it might continue to grow in the future?
  24. Chris Christensen

    Chaga??

    Just get a sample, post the picks and send a sample to to Steve Russell. He may contact you or I'll PM his address to send it to.
  25. Hoosierfunguy

    Chaga??

    I'm headed to the woods tomorrow, where I found that growth a few years ago. I'm planning to go back and see if it's still there. I'll take pictures of it before I harvest it. If anyone wants a sample for study, let me know.

    Chaga??

    The one I found was in northern Indiana.
  28. Chris Christensen

    Chaga??

    If this one does come back as Chaga it would only be the second one documented in Indiana, both I think were from northern Indiana. So I think if you have a possible Chaga species, I'm sure Steve Russell would like another, especially if from a more southern location.

    Chaga??

    Duplicate post I can't delete, just edit
  30. Hoosierfunguy

    Chaga??

    If this is indeed Chaga, then I'm sure it's the same growth I found on an oak tree. If another specimen is needed from another source, I'd be glad to not only harvest one, but also show where it's at to anyone researching this
