Hi Mike, The woods was full of them. My bag broke them up. If I soaked them in water can I still get a print. Not going to eat. I didnt have my camera with me. Otherwize, I would have left them in the woods. What do they look like to you. I thought they where Fried Chickens, but not so, after I look them up.

check that out. That sure looks like them to me. Megacollybia platyphylla. The Gills where very thin and Bright white. They also had a slight order There was only one out of the bunch that had a hint of very light pink. All the others here bright white. I put them in cold water, untill I could cheaked them out. So, I dont know if I can print them. Plus, I need a lesson in spore printing the right way. Well, I am doing a print one as I type. I think I just learned how! I will let you know. Anyway, I fig I was going to enjoy a dinner---BUT NOT EDIBLE, SO GUESS NOT. Thanks for your help. You folks are the best.

Greys, you hit the nail on the head, gill color did not match up to an old specimen of P.cervinius,mike

I tried a spore print. Here It goes!! they appear to be far more white then pink or red.

I didn;t check jason's link but to me...those are platterful mushrooms.

Apparently edible (meaning you won't end up on the liver transplant list), but why would you?

Why edible-Ed ? I tell you they where fresh no bugs and looked good enought to eat. But I am going with Miker on this one- all the facts point to Grays!!! Plus, I tossed them? When in dought toss them out. I like my liver!!
