Autumn is here! In anticipation of the annual influx of fungally-related threads, here's a one-stop shop for everything--

Tips, questions, mushroom ID, bragging, and discussion.

If you want a mushroom ID'd, please take pictures of the cap, gills, and stem!

First rains on the California north coast last week brought out the chanterelles in force! Found three (maybe four?) species of chanterelles in a day!
C. subalbidus
C. cascadensis
C. formosus
C. roseocanus (maybe)

Found some very early winter chanterelles too. I usually don't see those for a other two or three months where I live
It has been a great year for lobsters so far

last picture i have for this thread regret i didn't take more pictures of the mushrooms. saw some beautiful Calocera viscosa "yellow stag horn" and lots of mushies i cant remember enough to look up clearly
i dont know man! saw a Bolete with a cap bigger then my spread hand! where are you, this was Sweden nearest Kallinge
everything i wrote here is wrong, except that it is a terrible Id picture and that it was delicious.

Does anyone know how long it takes for a Chanterelle to grow up? I saw 3 little ones popping up through the ground today but didn't want to pick them. I'd like to come back and get them when they are bigger.

varies with the amount of available moisture. Where I live, there are 'fog-drip' chanterelles that grow very slowly-- maturing over the course of weeks or a month. After the first rains, there were fully-grown specimens after three or four days.
One nice thing about chanterelles is that they are pretty hardy and rot-resistant. If you don't think anyone's gonna take them, I'd say just go back in a few days.
I recommend finding a book that's specific to your region. All else being equal, All That the Rain Promises and More by David Aurora is an unbeatable first field guide for North America. It's got all the common edibles, great pictures, entertaining anecdotes, and is a pretty soft introduction to dichotomous keys if you're not already familiar.
If you're in northern California or the PNW, Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast by Noah Siegle and Christian Schwarz is an excellent and very thorough book. Definitely the best I've found for the region.
>varies with the amount of available moisture.

It's been raining pretty hard

>One nice thing about chanterelles is that they are pretty hardy and rot-resistant. If you don't think anyone's gonna take them, I'd say just go back in a few days.

I was told to look for Hemlock trees and found some there. No way anyone is going to come across them but hiking where they were to check on them will suck. I'm trying to learn where they grow besides Hemlock groves. We have tons of Winter Chanterelles but not Golden
I don't think that's a king, they usually have downturned caps and wider stems. But still a good find, there aren't really any bad boletes.

The only bolete I ever see is Slippery Jacks. What's weird though, is that I seem to find them both spring and autumn, so they're probably not the same thing. I'm more a fan of Grey Morels anyway though, so that's what I'm looking for.

>Calvatia Gigantea
If it's in the US, almost definitely. I'm not familiar with foreign shrooms, but if I found it in my area I'd eat it.

>I'd say just go back in a few days.
I went back and grabbed a couple but found more in about a 50 foot radius. I have never had them before and the pic makes them look wet and dark but I read they taste like apricots. HOLY CRAP they really taste like apricots it floored me. I don't think I've ever seen a post where someone describes the taste of Chanterelles. We also have Winter chanterelles that sort of have a slight vanilla flavor but not as flavorful as the Golden ones.
>tfw pawpaws are fully ripe and found the first persimmon that didn't turn my face inside out
Anybody know a good way to preserve pawpaws without ruining their flavor? I'll have 30 to 50 pounds of them in the next week but they only last about 10 days in the fridge or 2 days on the counter. I've tried cooking and canning them but they turn shit brown and lose all their flavor.
Oh man this thread has me excited sadly it's been super hot in my area (bay area CA) what kind of shooms can i find out here in the napa area?
how did you guys learn how to ID them? any reccomended books or anything?
the books specific for your area are always the best
best mushroom knife?
In Southeast Alaska we have this. But I notice we have the same type of mushrooms as Pacific Northwest.

Hey anon, I'm also from SE, but currently around Anchorage. If you're still around, do you know of any good for up here? Also, what is Bear Bread's real name? Kinda looks like the Red-belt conk, maybe. But it seems like a local guide would mention local names, ya?
The University has a Cooperative Services site but I can't remember if it had wild edibles in it. The stuff down here is different because of the rain and sometimes the stuff up there is tastier. I also call it Bears Bread (everyone I know calls it bears bread) but you are right it is technically called Red Belt Conk, people take it and paint on it.
jesus those look so fucking good

didn't get a good shot of the gills, but can anybody ID these? I found them growing in some garden mulch in Asheville. They look hella poisonous, but I'm curious.
they look like amanita pantherina, but they're lacking the veil, volva and the fuzz-like thingy on the stipe, so I can't really tell

I don't know shit about shrooms tb.h
found another possible contestant

Coprinus picaceus

Coprinopsis picacea, yes, I think too.
Very cool. I would love to grow my own at some point. There are several large patches of cyanescens near my house though
thanks man

>There are several large patches of cyanescens near my house
damn you got lucky anon, save some (dehydrating is your friend) and try to proliferate the shit out of them

be sure to 100% ID them though
Looks more like a species of Leccinum desu

Look for orange Lactarius with red milk under pines. Not sure if you have them in the US, but there should be a handful of species. I've heard there's also a blue one in NA.

Just use a regular pocket knife or something simple like >>1111364

correct ID desu
they can vary in color

best you can do is go with someone who actually knows his shit, someone who has been collecting them for years and can ID 100% based on experience, besides book pictures

I don't know anyone tho, so I guess I'll have to jump both feet and stick to easy ID ones

Calvátia gigántea
They're edible as long as they're white inside, like yours. It will turn yellow then brown and dry, then open up on top and spread it's spores.
How do I go about spreading them? Is there a way to carefully transfer small amounts of mycelium to other wood chip piles?
Chicken of the woods I found a block from my house last year, haven’t seen it again this year, unfortunately. It had barely rained this season where I live. Haven’t seen any mushrooms at all, was looking to harvest some armillarias this year for the first time. Any tips for a noob in the north east USA?
I don't think there is without risking contamination anon

you could go with the usual route and try to isolate it: spores to grain -> colonized grain to spawn -> spawn to wild wood chip piles (or omit this last step and spawn the grain directly into the wood), but then again I don't really know how delicate this species is, I know cubensis would probably be fine (not spawning to wood, but dung or other shit) because they're resilient as fuck, but I haven't done my research on cyanescens tb.h

if you don't want to complicate things you can always go with nature's intended way, simply collect a fuckload of them once they sporulate and try to spread their spores around other wood piles, funny enough this usually works for everything, althought it takes a little more time to show results (maybe you'll have to wait next year to see them grow)

I'd recommend isolating them and learning about shroom cultivation tho, takes some initial work but it's not that hard, and it's real fun

gl man
Where I live it seems to me that Chicken of the Woods does not re-appear on the same tree for a few years.

but really what is it? im in central Georgia.

when picking dandelions i feel uneasy because i could swear they look different but it's just paranoia, are there any safe bet mushrooms to pick in extremely southern brazil ? (humid and warm in the summer but very cold in the winter,foliage is sub-tropical to tropical to conifers in some places , when it comes to trees and bushes) , there is very little information online apart from some stoners talking about mushrooms that grow in cow shit
also to add to my last post IT'S RAINED 80MM NON-STOP LAST WEEK

Missouri, upland forest, puffballs found on shagbark hickory and northern red oak logs.
I know that the giant puffball here is edible, but I don't know about this one and every search I do turns up the giant puffball. Can I eat this one?
My mushroom book (denmark) says that every puffball is edible given theyre white inside.
I think its Lycoperdon pyriforme. Again its edible as all puffballs, but my book says the taste is 'metallic and not recommendable'.
Yeah I'll believe that, I'm reading "only finely spiny" and that applies to my specimens. Also the "occurring on wood", shape, etc. Gonna try cooking them into an omelet in the morning, I'm pretty sure they're all cream colored inside.
