That last one looks like a Bolete of some type, Those grow here and you are right they are not good to eat. My bro in law used to scrape the yellow spongey underbelly out and cook it and it tasted a little better. Coral, and Chicken and Chantrelles seem rightly id'd. Not sure on the destroying angel, some others look similar even with white spore prints.

I am pretty confident in the ones I Id'd... The destroying angel I am fairly confident in also. There are look a likes, Agaricus campestris (meadow mushrooms) for example, but based on habitat and inspection I am relatively confident it is an Angel...


That bolete isn't palatable but there are tons of different boletes and many of them are good - choice edible mushrooms. I am pretty sure this one is Boletus miniato-pallescens based on its features and also due to it being found in a hardwood forest that has a lot of oaks... It looks a lot like the Bouillon Bolete, Boletus pallidoroseus which is considered a desirable edible... I also saw a bunch of Boletus discolor which are not considered good edibles but there is a debate that this could be bad information but I am not willing to see for myself...


The photos that are clusters of mushrooms are the ones that I am not sure of...


I haven't seen any honey mushrooms which I think is surprising... I have only been out twice since I got home and there is a lot of ground still to cover both at the farm and in the nearby sanctuary which are completely different types of forest.

The "coral" mushroom is actually a false coral, Tremellodendron schweinitzii... I was looking at the photo last night and realized that it didn't look like it had been pulled off wood. My pretty little partner in crime who found it says she found it on the forest floor. After further research, I have learned that another defining characteristic of the true coral mushroom, besides being found on wood, is small indentations at its tips which I didn't know.




This mushroom would not have been harmful to eat but it may have been bitter and a little tough...
