Default Mushrooms... A Photo Essay

Since finding (and eating) Mushies are a major interest of mine... and since there seems to be a phew Mycophile types in the CT ranks... I thought I'd post a small sampling of my favourite photos.

They are mostly all from in BC... Many of you will recognize them, I'm sure...

If you have your own favourites, please feel free to add them to the post... I thought it would be cool to have a thread dedicated to things that grow on the forest floor everywhere... Maybe we could use this as an ID/Edibility forum too ???

... Peziza repanda (Recurved Cup... not edible)

... Crucibulum laeve(White Egg Bird's Nest... not edible)

... Trametes versicolour (Turkey Tail... not edible)

... Armillariella mellea (?) (Honey Mushroom... edible, with caution)

... Agaricus arvensis (Horse Mushroom... yummy)

And I found this big fella, just today while raking leaves in the rain...

... Macrolepiota rhacodes (Shaggy Parasol... Choice, but easily confoosed with similar looking deadlies...)

Disclaimer: Although Mushrooms identified herein may look to be the same as those that you have found, by no means should their identification or edibility statements be taken as accurate or professional... this thread is for fun and identification purposes only, since on many of our outdoor experiences, we come across fungi on the forest floor that pique our interest and further open our mind's thirst for knowledge ...

...hang on, I'm coming...

Good forum! Lets see if anyone knows what these are. We found them a few years ago on a hike up Mt. Moriarty over here on the Island. Never seen them before or since. Just in this one spot in heavy forest by an old rotting tree. It took a mycology prof from Washington State to tell us what they were!

Moved here from our Oct 10th Manning Hike...

Here's a few ID'ed from 'Nita's and Vida's pics...

... 'Nita with a bunch of Prize Boletus edulis... (King Bolete... the best for cooking)...

... Russula emetica (The Sickener... Poisonous, but not deadly)...

... Amanita citrina (False Death Cap... Poisonous, but not deadly)...

... Polyozellus multiplex (Clustered Blue Chanterelle... Rare and delicious)...

... Suillus tomentosus (Woolycap... aka "Poor Man's Slippery Jack"... go figure)... Some books say Edible, but stains Blue... not too appetizing and easily confused with poisonous varieties)...

... Ramaria botrytis (Clustered Coral... Edible... some say *Choice*)...

... Dentinum repandum (Sweet Tooth or Spreading Hedgehog... edible)

... Lactarius piperatus (Peppery Milky... Edible with caution... perhaps poisonous)...

But then we found this one...

... Catathelasma imperialis (Imperial Cat... which is Edible)... risky, no ???

Is it the very rare Fungus Sanguinus Fotoshopus?

Oh the outrage! The scandal! To suggest that a Clubtreader would resort to cheap photoshop tactics to stump you guys on one of these forums! Ok ok here is the link to the fungi I think this is. This is just clear my good name...lol!

I believe it is the bleeding-tooth hydenellum or bleeding hydnellum and that I might have the best picture examples on the web...notice the awesome deep ruby red colour of mine.

very impressive photo BradP!

I was only jesting about the Photoshop. I wanted to put my years of high-school Latin to some use

Are you sure about that one, Jack?
It seems to me more like Boletus family, doesn't look like Suillus tomentosus:

I think it might be Hericium ramosum or Comb Tooth. Apparently choice edible when young. They look very simila to Hericium coralloides (Bear's Head Tooth) only they are a little rougher around the edges. also the bears Head Tooth is found in the east on deciduous trees and not out here on the left coast. Both very tasty when cooked.

----------------------------------------
... I thought so.
