Hi everyone. I'm a new member looking for some ID help. I can't post in the Wild Mushrooming forum yet.

 

I recently moved to Florida and we have had a lot of rain the last 2 weeks. I have seen maybe 2 dozen or more different types of mushrooms over the last few days. I am curious as to what is edible and if any are psychedelic.

 

I picked some of the ones that are most common in my yard to get spore prints. I have tried identifying some myself with various websites and can never narrow it down. So I'm trying to get some help from someone who knows mushrooms better than I.

 

Should I post pictures here or wait until I can post in the proper place?

 

Thanks

Yes, if you'll upload photos to this post we can move it over to Wild Mushrooming for more views after you've cleared the probationary period. 

 

If you can manage....

Photos of the cap, gills, and stem are most helpful when ID'ing 

A steady hand really helps also since a crisp, clear image is worth a thousand words. 

 

Use the "more reply options" button which is located at the bottom of the "reply to this topic" window.

You will then open a more detailed editor which has image upload and attachment options.

Random other stuff I found but didn't pick. There were only a few of each type (maybe 2-5). If any look interesting I can go pick them and get more pics. Many more I didn't get pics of because the mosquitoes were terrible.

Also thought I would add that I live in the middle of the forest. Mostly pine, but also oak and magnolia trees. The yard is clear of trees and almost completely sand.
