Hi I am new here usually in shroomery but figured might give this a go. I found these in my backyard on hardwood and through multiple facebook ID groups all think it is Gymnopilus spectabilis.

I agree as the spore print is rusty orange and a few spots where i poked the cap have a little blueish green bruising.


What are your thoughts? Do you think this is a correct ID they are a little bit bitter but not as much as I thought I just took a small bit n spit out. ( no recent pics I will comment with them later)

I've never been able to find gyms in the wild but looks like you just did lol. I'm a complete noob when it comes to indentifying wild mushrooms though so wait for someone better qualified before you consume and take some prints while you wait.

This is the spore print for the big one, and half of his cap almost fully dried now.
