Instead of starting a new thread every time I find something cool, I'll just post them here. So here's a couple.

What is this?

 

I have some urban reishi pics that I'll add later.

Fun fungi fact about stinkhorns.... 

They smell like shit to attract flys and other shit loving bugs.

They look all over it looking for the yummy shit.

When they realize they have been duped, they give up and fly off to find real shit.

They then spread stinkhorn spores all along the way and even inoculate some real shit with some if they are lucky!

Well that sums it up in a nice witty way cubesRAbore ha ha ha stay away from the stink horn, it isn't even edible is it or just a wild growing mushroom like a lawn or field mushroom? not good to trip not good to eat just there. This is a first thanks for sharing this has me on google checking out a stink horn lol.

Probably one of the many Armilaria species.

I thought that honey subspecies were solely parasitic. I don't doubt you, I just want to learn more about non-active species.

It seemed to travel through the ground around here, grabbing every piece of mainly alder wood in its path.  It moved up and down the creeks, competing with the native oysters, and overran patches of wavy caps.    I didn't know what it was for years, and finally, though this site, learned what it was.  It could have all been one single mushroom with a billion or so fruits.

I've been told a of couple times that if they are honey's to go ahead and harvest with abandon as they are extremely aggressive and parasitic, and delicious.

If you look on the caps you should find some with white spore deposits. That will confirm Armilaria.

If they have a ring, they are most likely A. mellea. No ring, most likely A. tabescens.

Both are parasitic and saprotrophic.

:) They fruit here by the tons too!

Never tried them either ...have heard they can cause stomch upset??

...I gotta go for a walk today we have had a cold snap now for 2 days and its going to get warmer again so more mushies will be stimulated by the cold snap :)

oh oh I forgot I wanted to ask which is the white mushroom that eats this one or the honey mushroom eats it?
Either way you end up with a white blob that looks like cauliflower?
I think they would be interesting to cook with I remember they are edible but I havent tried them , the stomach upset that I have heard about honey mushrooms have held me off trying them....

Hi there!

 

I ate armillaria several times and have to say I love it!

You should only use young species or get rid of the stem before cooking.

An Important thing to do is to cook them and get rid of the water befor using them any further.

I am also processing laetiporus sulphureus (I think you call it chicken of the woods) before eating, like this.

A typical look-alike is Pholiota sqarrosa- but he has brown spores.

Some people say armillarias are deadly for pigs. I dont know if thats true. I can only say the are definitely not deadly for humans.

One further tip: dont eat mushrooms too late in the evening- they are hard to digest... some more... some less.

 

Best greetings!
