    Are these laetiporius? ChickenOfTheWoods

    Yes I plan to thanks! Here's another one... I wonder if it's really young lions mane. I'm not sure how it is supposed to attach to the tree, do they attach by a stalk? I sure appreciate your help
  2. I wondered if anyone can tell me if this might be the beginning stages of a chicken of the woods mushroom?

    Chantrelles or young Jack o Lanterns

    Bruce I would like to see pictures of your jack o lanterns, if possible. Thanks I have no problem identifying a chanterelle but wonder if I've ever seen a jack o lantern. I always look around beech, very high success rate, more than oak around here anyway. Would it be either one of these pics?

    Angel Wings in Indiana?????

    Thank you Dhuntington and Bruce for the feedback. Honestly nothing better than a morel! First memory of hunting morels at about 5 or 6 with my mom and I found all the tiny ones, helps when you're short I guess. But I found more than she did and was sooo proud. : )

    Angel Wings in Indiana?????

    Here are the photos from the WPMC that were posted on their website. To me they do appear whiter, veins are more shallow with wider spacing and not as deep or sharp. Also don't seem to run down the stem as far. But they may be young specimens IDK. I will probably start walking some pine forest in the area to see if I can find some out of curiosity and get some physical comparisons and photos. If I find some I will post them. My first year for summer foraging and WOW didn't know there were so many available. I'm going slow and trying to be safe and educated. Got chanterelles nailed! Had a lot of chant finds (over 5 lbs.) here in Huntington Co. but they kind of dried up now, need rain!

    Angel Wings in Indiana?????

    Hello Bruce, thanks for the response. Here are some pics, I am pretty sure these are oysters I just want to be sure. I have read a lot of info looking for differences in angel wings and oysters and seem to find a lot of warnings but not much by way of describing differences. I did find a pic of the top AND bottom on the West Pennsylvania Mushroom Club website of angel wings yesterday and that really helped. It seems angels grow ONLY on conifers (true?) and are whiter. Not much to go on. BOTH have: decurrent veins and similar spore print color, physical appearance, and growth pattern. Please deny or confirm any of that if you can, thanks. These pics were all taken from growth on hardwood (cherry, oak and one other not sure of) none were conifer. There were some lightly buff colored growth among these too. Also descriptions of smell (mildly anise) are not helpful. When I smell chanterelles I don't get apricot either so I must be different than everyone else, although I can smell a morel patch from a 100 feet lol! Thanks again for helping! Mick
  7. Hello all, I hope someone can help me here... I am looking for information about Pleurocybella porrigens (angel wings) Are they found in Indiana? I looked on the archived species lists for summer months and found no listings for these. I am finding a lot of oyster type mushrooms and don't want to misidentify but lacking good information for a positive ID. There seems to be a lot of overlap in characteristics with Pleurotus pulmonarius (summer oysters) which are what I believe I am finding. Are there any other look-a-likes I should be aware of? I have pics if anyone wants to see. Avid morel forager wanting to expand to some summer edibles. Thanks for your help
