Not sure but lol



Bavaria must be a look like Denmark, 'cause we have all of the same ones right now!

The lol one is Coprinus comatus, known as Lawyer's Wig. We call it Wig-hat here - it's actually a quite decent morsel if you get them young, we picked and fried some yesterday and ate them on bread!

E: but don't get drunk at the same time, they create compounds that make alcohol, uh, very dangerous.

2nd one here looks like Pseudoclitocybe cyathiformis (heh), AKA a goblet funnel cap, but they were all very distinctly purple so I'm not quite sure.

First one in the album is probably Macrolepiota procera (parasol).

Itís also possible some are Ďjustí unpleasant or dangerous to the wildlife they evolved to deter and happen to be extremely fatal to humans.

I mean, if you're a successful actress and you go out of the house in a skirt and without underwear, knowing that paparazzi are just waiting for opportunities like this and that it has happened many times before, then there's really nobody you can blame for it but yourself.

The vast majority of natural plant (or fungal) poisons are alkaloids, which mammals have evolved to largely interprete as an exceedingly bitter taste. Caffeine is an alkaloid. Try biting down on a caffeine tablet sometime, that flavour won't go away all day.

How bad poisons are varies a lot from species to species too. Chocolate kills dogs, grapes kill some dogs (seemingly at random), etc etc. Box turtles are edible except they love to eat toadstools and will retain some of the poison for a while and be potentially deadly. A fitting punishment for eating a box turtle.

Chocolate kills dogs
It's the contained theobromine, which is, incidentally, also an alkaloid. It has a pharmacodynamic profile that is very similar to that of caffeine, but dogs are not able to metabolize it very well. As such, they basically die of heart failure the way a human would if they mainlined a gallon of high-intensity black mocha.

Nature's greatest joke is that Australia is full of things that are mildly poisonous/venomous to most mammals (but highly poisonous/venomous to primates) which evolved that capability in the absence of primates.

Went to the churchyard and got an assload of Suillus luteus, syn. boletus luteus - apparently referred to as "slippery jack" or "sticky bun" in English We call it brown-yellow slime bolete.



Didn't taste so well, though, perhaps they were too big.

Also got a bunch of Xerocomellus chrysenteron, or red cracking bolete, but I didn't get a pic.

In German they're called Butterpilze. Those are also ringless, so they're a little less tasty than the ones with rings. Also they gave me diarrhea.

Appropriately, in Sweden they're 'smŲrsopp' (butter mushroom).

Yeah those appear to be suillus collinitus, which are generally considered less edible than suillus luteus. But if you had problems digesting one, then my source says to probably avoid all suillus.

round here everyone seems to like to dry the slimy suillus species first to make the sticky texture go away--wonder if that also makes them easier to digest

Hydnums, much like chanterelles, are a single block of fungi flavour that's easy to clean and usually completely ignored by larvae. They are a little on the tougher side, but they just need more cooking.

I'm pretty sure they were baby cyanescens from the growing in birch chips, white stems and purple bruising after they were picked but a spore print will be nice to confirm. Also they were super wet or jelly like which seems to be a big indicator? They should be a bit bigger today or tomorrow. I'm slowly learning! Cant stop looking for mushrooms now they're everywhere

Do yellowfeet (Craterellus tubaeformis) grow there? It's what I pick in the finnish winter months since it doesn't mind freezing.

I donít really do much old weather hunting but I know brick caps and oysters are around, and once it warms a touch lots of jelly fungus pop up on the winterís storm fall.

Careful with brick caps though they have a couple nasty lookalikes and co-occur with Galerina marginata

The price of greatness is responsibility.

I had a productive visit to south central Oregon over the weekend. We ended up taking home a dozen big fat white chantrelles and four huge Matsutakes. Iíve been trying to hone my skills at finding porcinis, and we did find a few fat boletes but most were already rotting or I just couldnít ID them well enough to feel good about eating them.



White Chantrelle


Unknown bolete



This has been a head scratcher. I think it is Smithís Amanita. The cap was very textured, but I couldnít see the veil remnant on the stalk I would have expected to see.


Matsutake. I grilled this one last night and it was amazing. The rest is going to be grilled and added to ramen. Best mushroom.


Scaly Chanterelle


Zellerís Bolete??


Cracked Bolete


Western Painted Suillis


No idea. Love this one, canít ID it. Anyone? Lepiota americana, maybe?


Russula brevipes I believe. This was very large, maybe 10-12 inches in diameter.


Stinking Dapperling


Blue Staining Suillis


Umber-Brown Puffball




Pholiota limonella


Aniseed Toadstool


Amethyst Deceiver


Questionable Stropharia



Boarís Head



Dark Honey Fungus, Armillaria ostoyae



If anyone has a recommendation for cooking the chanterelles Iím all ears. So far weíve done a pesto sauce, but Iím not sure what to try next.
