    ID Help

    The only thing I've had the nerve to eat so far was a very obvious Laetiporus I found on an old stump. It was very tasty. As for these, I was surprised by the huge grove of mushrooms of a variety that are new to my little patch of woods and was very curious about how close I had come to correctly identifying them myself. With the exception of the tiny bit I tasted and spat out, I have not eaten any of these and there's basically no chance that I will. It's just as you said, there are so many mushrooms that look like this that it's just not worth the risk. If I did get a wild hair and decide to cook some up, I would never try and justify it by saying "well some stranger on the internet said it was ok". I'm way too paranoid for that. I'm looking for some good online, self study classes on mycology. Are there any you can recommend? How did you learn?

    Yes, it looks like a Pluteus. I've never had the nerve to pick and eat one. Too many look-alikes. For sure I would never attempt to ID it for you only to have you get sick. I suggest you continue to educate yourself on both the mushrooms and the risks and avoid putting your health in the hands of others. Regards, Bruce

    Can I provide more pics of some other features to help? I tasted a tiny piece, chewed but didn't swallow, and it tastes like a slightly bittersweet radish which also matches the profile for the Pluteus varieties here in Indiana.

    ID Help

    Hello, first time posting, long time lurking. I have a huge crop of these in a shadowy bed of freshly mulched hostas in my backyard. I think these are deer shield mushrooms, but I'm new to this game and I want to be sure.

    Thank you, I made the raspberries into a pie. It was wonderful, this helps me for later in the season and for next year.

    Any help identifying these boletes?

    I get a lot of bitter boletes around here and that looks like one. I have given it a quick taste and immediately spit it out to be sure. You'll know

    Help with identifying

    Those are definitely black raspberries! 😁😂 Yes, they do look like chicken of the woods that are past their prime.
  15. I found these a few weeks back, found on a log on the family farm. I believe they are chicken of the woods. I brought a few home to have a better look. They were soggy from the rain and had a smell like they were roting from the rain. Any help identifying these would be appreciated, I have more where they came from, just waiting for the weather to dry out a bit. Thank you
  16. Do you think this is a "bitter"?

    Any help identifying these boletes?

    Probably so. Cap reacted with slight yellow color to ammonia. Taste was not overly bitter but not "mushroomy" either. Thanks, Steve
  18. Looks like Tylopilus felleus Regards, Bruce
  19. Found these this evening amongst hardwoods along with a few chanterelles. They do not bruise. Any ID help??

    Unique mushroom?

    Agreed...it's Artomyces pyxidatus. They are actually quite tasty, but you have to collect a lot of them, and it can be a chore to remove all the wood particles. Beware of look-alikes, particularly various species of Ramaria. Bruce

    Chicken of the woods?

    Thanks for the help!! Yeah it does look like it is a bit ragged and not in the best shape... I found another one nearby but it looked like a critter had found it and torn it all up.

    Unique mushroom?

    I just saw this in the woods this afternoon on my walk and have never seen a mushroom quite like it. Does anyone know what it is?
  27. Bruce

    Chicken of the woods?

    Agreed. Past it's prime, though. Cincinnatus have the white underside and often appear on roots instead of exposed wood (as opposed to sulphureus). Bruce

    Chicken of the woods?

    Yup - Laetiporus cincinnatus
