Need help identifying shrooms please
9 Attachment(s)
The first 2 pics are of the same mushroom and were about 3-4in tall with a meaty stalk

The second fungi pics were interesting and I saw someone with a picture of them on here but no clue as to what they are. I have been an outdoors enthusiast since I could walk but never saw these before. Can anyone help me on this one?

The next 3 pics of a trumpet looking shroom look old but they were everywhere I stepped it seemed like.

These 2 pictures of the same fungi almost looked like snot to me and were hanging off a deadfall (possibly beach or cottonwood tree).

Any help identifying these would be great and are any of them edible?

The second ,I believe is lions mane/bears head tooth/pom pom blanc.

Re: Need help identifying shrooms please
The first one looks like an amanita. Deffinetly not edible!!! The white fungus on the log with the teeth is a bears head tooth. Very tasty when picked all white like in the picture. Do not try it if it is stained or yellowing. The "trumpet shaped shrooms" is a past prime form of lactarius. Probobly not edible even when fresh. You could benifit greatly by getting a good field guide. Amizon has a used section that i buy all my books in. You can buy a 37.00 book for around 10.00 shipping included. I got my audobon book for 5.00 shipping included!!!

Re: Need help identifying shrooms please
Thanks, I know that I need a book for sure if I want to harvest more than morels and hens but at this moment I am not able to purchase a book. I am just looking for the very easily identifyable mushrooms that are edible and hard to confuse with anything else around.

I also just find it fascinating to go out in the woods and see all the wonders that it has to offer and I like to share with others on here too.

Re: Need help identifying shrooms please
I have been hunting morels for about 30 years so I am no stranger to things.....there is NOOO way that I am gonna just stuff any old fungi in my mouth before I know whether it is poisonous or not lol. This has been a weird year. I only found a handful of morels this year but I have been having a banner year finding every other mushroom on this planet in a very small area lol.

I haven't found any hens yet though sniff sniff :( I am in the thumb area so maybe in another week or two?

Re: Need help identifying shrooms please
The first one is possibly one of these and an amanita
for sure.

Here's 3 variations of Herciums in case you want to
put the actual name with your picture.


Plenty of good free shroom books at the library.
I usually check them out at the library before
I decide to purchase a new one.

Re: Need help identifying shrooms please
I am for sure going to head to the local library this winter to do some studying on shrooms other than morels and the normal ones I pick!
