Mushroom ID Thread
« on: November 10, 2015, 01:32:07 PM »
I am a mushroom noob, but I am interested in learning more about the various things that can be foraged.
 

I thought it might be of interest to start a mushroom ID thread, post pics, discuss the variety, when/where they are found, thoughts on whether edible and cautions for lookalikes that may be toxic. 

It probably goes without saying that you should not eat a mushroom unless you are 100% certain that it is not toxic.

There was a recent story about a surge in poison control calls this year due to consumption of toxic varieties of mushrooms.

You alone bear the responsibility for yourself in the consumption of mushrooms you forage.

(If there is an ongoing thread here, please let me know and I'll merge this.)

That said, here is my initial entry.  Found today (11/10/15), under a deciduous tree, after the recent weeks of rain (cap size approx. 6-8 inches in diameter).


Pretty sure it's not this one.

Thanks, Bango.  Putatively ID'd as poisonous, Amanita Muscaria.

In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

"Mushrooms demystified" by david aurora is a very good one too.  And anything written by paul stamets is golden.

Mine too, just after the recent rains in Western WA.  I always assumed they were magic mushrooms.

Good thread. Sticky'd
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

I think it's the cauliflower kind my dad used to get, don't quote.
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

Just saw this.  From the pic i think they MIGHT be panaeolus foenisecii.  Cant give a positive id from the pic.  If they are, then they can be very weakly psilocybin active, but not strong enough to bother with as youd have to eat a ton of them.

Edit:  just checked and it seems the ones growing in the pnw are generally not active.  Like the giant laughing gym, gymnopolis something or other, seems theyre weakly active in asia and inactive here.

Can anyone ID this mushroom for me? I'm starting to find more and more of them in the northeast corner, especially this time of year. Thanks.
The mountains are calling, I must go.
