Default Fungus ID Thread

I see dozens of varieties of mushrooms or fungus when I'm walking my lab and some of them look good to eat but without knowing for sure, I won't. I would like to post pics of the different ones we run across and see if someone can help out with the identification.

I picked a lot of chanterelles this fall. I am looking for some edible ones to take advantage of when the wonderful ones you mentioned are not fruiting.

I found out the fungi in post #3 is a coral fungi and is edible.

CORAL FUNGI(Clavariaceae)
Description: These fungi appear as clumps of branching stems which point upward. They do look much like coral. Most are tan, whitish or yellowish; a few are pinkish or purple.

Also called club fungi, antler mushrooms or doghair mushrooms. Size: clusters may be up to 8" high.

When and Where: Summer and fall; in wooded areas, growing on the ground or on decaying logs.

Cautions: A few coral fungi have a laxative effect, and some people seem to be particularly sensitive. Avoid coral fungi that taste bitter, bruise brown when handled or have gelatinous bases. These are most likely to case trouble. No serious poisonings from coral fungi have been reported.

Cooking Hints: Tips and upper branches are most tender. Saute and add to vegetables or white sauce.

theres probally 20 diffrent types of coral brush looking mushrooms like that around here. white, red, black, grey, purple, just sayin.

u can eat the poisenious ones too, if ya cook em long enough they say. i just wouldn't recomend it. any of the ones in the pics anyways.

your best bet would be to google oregon winter mushrooms or call some buyers and see if they know anything.

get a field guide to mushrooms and take it with you on your walks. very easy to do ID's in the field, and if you're not 100% sure what you're looking at, leave it be!

not sure if i can promote a book on here, but All the rain promises is a good one.

I cant ID those, but I would not eat any of them...

Its a modest percentage of the mushrooms you will find that are worth eating, regardless of if they are deemed edible or not. There are some russulas out there that are certainly edible that I wouldnt want to eat, simply because they are too peppery.

Best to stick with the known good ones, (chanterelles, morels, trumpets, etc.) and hunt them when they're in season.

Cool pics though, keep em coming.

I second that none of the pictures you posted are mushrooms that I would eat. Get some from Safeway. Nice to take pictures of not to eat.
