Went on a little hike yesterday and I saw....

 

 

I think this is a Crested Coral, Clavulina Cristata.  It could also be a White Coral.

4th picture Amanita something or other? Stipe looks quite white, maybe A.Rubescens?

I think the first two may be Red Gyroporus or Red-mouth Bolete.  They don't really fit, though.  I found a site that had a picture of something that looks just like what I found but they didn't know what it was.

 

Number four looks like an Amanita to me, too.

1&2 maybe Ruby Bolete (Boletus rubellus)

Or maybe not - different world region.

Well they sure look alike!  A check for staining and a spore-print would have been helpful, but I was just taking pics that day.  :)

It never ceases to amaze me how many different species I will see on one walk.......thanks for the glimpse onto a Sidestreet brother...............it's raining here again so it's almost every day now...........

 

The number of mushrooms in my yard is insane let alone the forests.............beautiful!

 

Is that last one a pearl oyster log perhaps? Keep an eye on that one.......might be worth taking a clone if you're into those............

Unfortunately it's a bit too far away for me to go back for a clone.  That and I have no setup atm.  I'm thinking that it's about time for me to get into some edibles, though!

Having now consulted Roger Philips 'Mushrooms' I see my memory has dangerously failed me!

A.Pantherina (Panther Cap - Poisonous!) has the white stem; if A.Rubescens (The Blusher - Edible and good) then stem should be flushed with the same colour as the cap.

 

Moral of the story, don't believe me - I'm a complete  amateur.

Hey, me too.  So you think that might be A. Pantherina?  Those are poisonous?  For some reason I thought they had the same effects as their Christmassy counterparts.

Erowid agrees with you:-

Which leaves me wondering where I got the idea A.Panth was potentially deadly ...

I'm reading that Pantherina is rare east of the Rockies, though, so it may be more likely to be A. Rubescens as you mentioned.  Rubescens "lacks a prominent, sacklike volva." (heh) as does that pic up there.

Some more of these pretty little orange ones:

This one looks similar to that possible amanita above:

Another cool red polypore:

Looks like a bolete:

This one's a monster!

I'll go back through and see if I can make some identifications later.  I'm starting to see repeats, so it would be nice to be able to recognize them in the future.  :)

Need a gill shot to be sure, but your "pretty little orange ones" look like yummy cinnabar chanterelles to me!
