Fishers Indiana poisonous or edible

Recommended Posts

Trying to identify this type found in my yard. We have lots of woods nearby. Hand for size reference. We're trying to figure out if it's an edible variety or not.

I think it could be a fawn mushroom, but am not entirely sure. Someone more knowledgeable than me will have to verify. Generally speaking you need to get some books and become familiar with mushrooms yourself. I can't speak for others, but I don't want to be even partially responsible for you getting sick (or worse).

Rumor has it that those who run the mushroom society also have occasional forays that you can tag along on but I've never participated in these myself. Be careful out there!
