    I've signed in on the Indiana mushrooms website.

    Yeah, Steve gets busy, and all dates are considered soft until it opens for registration. It does make it hard to plan. I'm planning on the walk tomorrow at the Indiana dunes, which hasn't opened yet with a time frame and meeting location.

    It's on the HMS calendar or schedule of events. I plan to attend that and brown county the day before. I've hunted shades with both of you last year. Hope to see you both again.

    What is this?

    I'm pretty sure that you dug up a non edible variety of a truffle. Tuber canaliculatum is the edible Michigan truffle that we assume exists in Indiana but not documented yet. Google for more information.

    Order from Store

    Steve Russell is the guy. I'm sure it will be resolved. Possibly holiday weekend is a factor. You can try again or keep posting. He or other moderators will contact you.

    If it is Steve Russell may be interested in a dried specimen. I've not seen them quite that flat.

    Mushroom identifycation

    Not a problem, I was just trying to help. Point well taken.

    Mushroom identifycation

    Quite possibly a Psilosybe sp., maybe cubenses? Which are considered poisonous due to the content of psilocybin they contain. Others will confirm or deny.

    I agree.

    Cerioporus squamosus, commonly called pheasants back, dryads saddle. Edible, but need fresh young ones or the tender tips. I still don't seem to cook it anyway but tough! You shouldn't eat any mushroom fresh, but if you take a small bite it tastes like cucumbers or non sweeten watermelon rind.

    Membership and purchased items

    I think mine came usps. The most active conversations are on Indiana mushrooms. This site is still very active mainly in the summer, but a moderator is usually around. Mention Steve Russell here or Indiana mushrooms and maybe that will get his attention. I always received anything I've purchased through this site.

    mushroom forays

    Most likely not until April or May. It will be announced here and listed on the home page that shows last years schedule now marked out. What has been discussed in earlier posts is a morel certification program that is sponsored by the Hoosier mushroom society. Where you may become certified as an expert on select morels in Indiana. Hope this helps.
