Fly Agarics and Fairy Ring Marasmius.

My neighbor's fir tree (on the left in the first photo) has a half-circle of Yellow-Orange Fly Agarics. Here is a photo of the fir tree, and photos of the Agarics. I have some Fairy Ring Marasmius in my yard, which, like the Fly Agarics, grow in fairy rings. Remember, Fairy Ring Marasmius are an excellent edible while the Agarics are poisonous.
I'll post the Marasmius as a response to this...as you are limited to 10 attachments per post.
These were taken today, 10/4/12, in Northern Berrien County.

Re: Fly Agarics and Fairy Ring Marasmius.

Here are the Fairy-Ring Marasmius growing in my yard (these an excellent edible). These grow close to the ground, unlike the Yellow-Orange Fly Agarics (which are poisonous, but not deadly), and grow in the middle of the grass in full sun, instead of under a fir tree in the shade.
(I know, I should of held up one of the Amanitas for scale, like I did the Marasmius, but I don't like touching poisonous mushrooms. )

The point is, don't assume that all mushrooms that grow in fairy rings are the edible fairy ring mushroom, because even poisonous mushrooms grow in fairy rings.

Right. You also mentioned they were not worth the trouble. Plus I wouldn't recommend something that has to be detoxified to someone new to mushrooming.
I'm guessing that "ok" meant they didn't really taste bad, but didn't really taste good either.

It is raining now, and is supposed to rain this weekend, so I imagine more will grow. Lake Michigan will probably keep us from getting a hard freeze this coming Monday when temps are supposed to dip below freezing. I live close enough to Lake Michigan that I probably will stay around 40 degrees, or at least the upper 30's while inland areas dip below freezing.
