“Oyster”  :tup:
Thank you. FYI... I figured out that it is Pleurotus Populinus. It and Pleurotus Pulmonarius are edible and common in the Pacific Northwest. These two species are basically the same as Pleurotus Ostreatus which is found worldwide. All three are edible.

A couple links to help ID this species...

Pleurotus Populinus: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pleurotus_populinus

Pleurotus Pulmonarius: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pleurotus_pulmonarius

I had already thrown this one out by the time I identified, but it says that it will continue to grow in the same location for 2-4 years. I’ll be back next year I guess.

The mountains are calling, I must go.

[/img] what type of mushroom is the yellow one? Is it editable? Found in Kittitas county in the hills!
I think it's the cauliflower kind my dad used to get, don't quote.
It's a coral and you can clearly see how it gets its name. Most corals are edible but the yellow have given me some gastric distress. I may have undercooked it but I doubt it.

Here's a couple I came across down here in ca.  Not sure if it's an edible amanita vernicoccora or the death cap... I left it.

This looks a bit like coccora but you'd need to get a good guide to match up where and when you found it, the spore print, and the visual characteristics. Remember - every mushroom is edible...some only once. No free mushroom is worth organ damage or death.

I recommend Mushrooms Demystified by David Arora. This is an extensive study and the "Bible" for most mycologists. His field guide, All That The Rain Brings and, More, contains brilliant photos of the most common edible mushrooms.

Any thoughts on this one?

I concur with Chicken of the Woods. This looks like a dry specimen. When harvesting Chicken, the "shelves" should be moist and spongy. The dryer ones are tough and usually taste piney.

Glad to see you in here and the book recommendations.  Thanks.

Got any general books for plant ID in PNW?  Edible, non-edible, trees, shrubs, grasses, etc.  I know next to nothing.

Discovering Wild Plants (PNW) by Janice Schofield is the most comprehensive all-around book on wild edibles I know of.

Got an old pic somewhere of Chicken of the woods growing forty feet up a tree on the 88 road out of Trout Lake. It must have had 50# on the one tree. It was gorgeous! We didn't pick a single one. Looked too pretty... Lol

Interesting. We found a tree near the 88 rd. - same thing. Probably 20 years ago. There's a lot of chicken up there.

Pile of corals found last August around 3000 feet in old growth forest. Near 10lbs we picked reds, orange, brown, yellow and white. Delicious on top of steak sauteed in butter! Deep earthy flavor
