Yep, like said above.  Found this huge cauliflower mushroom this weekend.  It was delicious.

One of my favorites. If you find another, you can separate the leaves and use them like lasagna noodles to make a keto lasagna. Also, covering with olive oil and garlic, roast at 425 for 15 minutes, it's delicious by itself.

What are the lower right ones? I see those from time to time and thought they were wooly chants which I have read tend not to agree with most people.

Ha ha, good point!  I thought those were white chanterelles so picked them.  And ate a few bites but they were pretty bitter...  so maybe don't pick those ones  :chuckle:

The white boletes look like queens - perfectly good. The other white fungi look like white coral, not cauli - also perfectly good to eat. Don't eat too much of the coral at one sitting. May cause deer-terrifying gas!

Cauliflower and corals can sometimes look very similar. I've been told the super pink reddish ones can give gastrointestinal issues. But usually cooking well will help that. Haven't tried the pink ones. These are the coral and cauliflower types. You can see that coral has little nodule tops on its branches while cauliflower is brainy looking and wavy on top.

I have about 25 field guides. The one with the best pics is mentioned above - All That the Rain Promises and More by David Arora. Get it. It's great for PNW mushroom hunting.

I agree with Aroras book! Itís a must have for anyone getting into mushroom hunting. We have found over 20lbs of chanterelles this year and about 10lbs of chicken o da woods. A few lobsters and cauliflowers too. Best year for chicken of the woods Iíve seen in a while
