Not really a trip so to speak. More like a walk through the park. lol. Here's some pics I took of various specimens. Some of which I brought home for further work.

Here's a Sparassis herbstii (Cauliflower mushroom). It's edible and was brought home for further work. http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1158762796

Here's a Boletes of some sort I think. Anyone know for sure? I brought this home just in case. http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1158762796

Here's a snail on an old rot fungus of some sort. I thought it was a neat picture.http://mycotopia.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=34521&stc=1&d=1158762796


Then the rot fungus in whole. http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1158762796

Here's your standard pear-shaped Puffball (Lycoperdon pyriforme) sheading its outer shell for spore release. These are edible, but supposedly are flavorless. http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1158762796

Puffball with shell completely gone.http://mycotopia.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=34524&stc=1&d=1158762796

Puffball releasing its olive-brown spore mass when tampered with.http://mycotopia.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=34525&stc=1&d=1158762796

These look like Trametes pubescens gobbling up a stump.http://mycotopia.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=34526&stc=1&d=1158762796

I suppose these are Honey mushrooms of some sort. That's what I was told at the Shroomery anyways. The daddy-long legged spider certainly enjoys whatever they are.http://mycotopia.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=34527&stc=1&d=1158762796

That's basically what they are Jim.

By the way, the Puffball in the pics are only edible when much younger than the one in the 1st. pic.

Looks kinda like a Ganoderma species and the pine needles indicate that if it is, then it is probably a Ganoderma Tsugae

Actually, that's a poor picture of it. It's not a bracket fungi. It's capped and stemmed with pores.

The waxy red stem in between your fingers (if I am looking at it right) is what made me think it was a Ganoderma. Ganoderma species appear as antlers, shelfs (bracket?), and conchs. The conchs are similar looking to a stem and cap. Ganodermas are polypores too.

Got any other pics of it?

Also, awsome finds!!! :cool:
Wish I could get that lucky.

Very interesting pics, not a whole lot of mush like that where I live...too cold.
Great photos though.

Here's a couple more pics of the strange mushroom in question. It has a cap that surrounds the stem completely. http://mycotopia.net...=1&d=1158774281

Looks like some kinda Ganoderma like mushroom to me, but don't take my word for it. I only eat them when I grow them myself. I always thought Boletes were more spongey and fleshy, but there are lots of different kinds out there.

Hey M1a. Got any idea what the heck that Boletes looking specimen is? I can't find a decent match in any of my guides. It's a weird one for certain that's got me stumped.

Thanks guys! Glad you enjoyed them. I may have some more soon. There were several spots were mycelium was present in soil or wood that hadn't fruited yet. It should be neat to see what appears.

No Idea man. It does look to be a bolete, but it looks really deformed. Too hard to tell.

Check this out! I don't know what they are but, damned if this cluster didn't weigh around 30lbs. My brother calls me last night and says he's sitting at a stop sign looking at the largest cluster of mushrooms he's ever seen. So I go take a looksy and decide to snap photos and harvest them before some damn kid kicks them over or something. lol!

Sweet hunting trip.

To me, the cauliflower mushroom tastes like lobster when sauteed in butter. I was using Sparassis crispa (eastern cauliflower), don't know how the other ones taste but I bet they're just as good. I've been looking for them for three years, which was the last time I found a decent fruiting of them where I'd been looking...yer lucky!

Puffball spores are fun and useful, in case anyone didn't know... the spore cloud is good for cuts or wounds; the spores help stop bleeding and are antibacterial. They are also explosive. Hold a lit lighter near one next time you puff some spores out...neat little fireball...

The Cauliflower does kind of have a seafood taste. It sort of reminded me of that immitation crab meat when sauted. I think i've finally managed to aquire a clean culture of it, so a cultivation attempt will be soon hopefully.

I'd really like to know what the huge cluster of mushrooms is? I'm thinking some kind of Agaricus maybe? But, that's one hell of a cluster if I say so myself, in which I haven't seen Agaricus cluster up like that.
