This is a general rule. There's plenty of edible mushrooms that grow on plenty of things, but you need to ID them properly and that can be hard

Just Morels, they pop up so late here. There aren't many other decent edible shrooms in Central South Dakota, at least varieties that are easily identifiable. I miss living in the PNW and being able to find chanterelles, boletes, hedgehogs, oysters, chicken of the woods, all with relative ease and confidence and a much longer foraging season.

Hey I think I found the same thing (mine looks a lot more weathered), didnt realize it was edible
>>
>>1768788
Thanks, I played disc golf at the Spearfish canyon course last time I was out there. Pretty nice course but I couldn't find some of the tee pads
>>
>>1768764
I couldn't tell it apart from a few other species I've seen online, and the closest match has photos that vary from these ones. I'm still new to mushroom identification so I'd rather not risk it.
>>1768919
If my ID is correct, it probably isn't but it looks very similar to Polyporus Squamosus, which is.
>>
>>1768909
Apologies, but I'm not sure why my pictures are flipping like this. On my phone and computer they're right side up.
>>
>>1768601
Might be a coprinoid, actually. I didn't really try to ID them at all when I saw them, just wanted to take a pic because it looked cool
>>
>>1768957
That's because 4chan strips Exif data. Same data contains rotational alignment. There is a very simple way of fixing it though. Rotate the picture, edit it in any way -- like dropping a small white dot somewhere with mspaint -- and then save it as a new picture. It should keep the alignment now.

Morchella Diminutiva, harvested yesterday only a few meters away from where >>1768571 was found. Is it just a coincidence that two species of the same genus are so close to each other?

>>1769774
Go out and start IDing things as practice, but don't actually eat anything until after a year or so of experience. Use field guides for your local area and do plenty of research online. If you end up really enjoying it, join a mushroom club and an experienced mushroom picker will help you tremendously. Learn how to make spore prints and dissect caps.

In the meantime, you can look for some mushrooms that are very distinctive, such as morels. This is only my first season mushroom picking but I believe anything in the Morchella genus is a safe bet for anybody as long as you dont confuse a Gyromitra for them
>>
>>1769979
Almost forgot, morels are only safe to eat after cooking I believe. This should go for any mushroom you plan to eat from the wild. And also there's a closely related genus of mushrooms called Verpa, and it's under debate whether or not they're poisonous but they should be easy to tell apart from a morel if you familiarize yourself with them
>>
>>1768568
sweeping statements are garbage, there's deadly poisonous and great edibles that grow on both wood and the ground.

looks like dryads saddle/polyporus squamosis to me, if the undersides are hexagon shape i would go for it.

>>1768944
also depends where you live there's no look-alikes for polyporus squamosis out east so i have no worries picking it, but things may be different out west


>>1768919
that one's a bit old probably not too good for eating
>>
>>1772351
Nah a few Gyromitra and a couple common verpas are edible. You just need to cook them throughly to get all the poisons out.
>>
Bois, my oyster-producing ash stump is going wild with the little bastards. And there are tons of other oysters popping up all over my woods.
>>
>>1769774
Figure out what grows in your area and only eat the foolproof ones. Morels, chanterelles, and chicken of the woods are all very distinct from any toxic lookalikes. Also, get a field guide. I can’t recommend because they tend to be region specific but I will say I’m not a fan of the Audubon society book. Lastly, when in doubt do NOT throw it out. Take it home, take prints, make a post on mushroom observer, and get an ID. Once you’ve IDed something once you’ll never forget it. Just don’t eat anything you’re unsure of and you’ll be fine. Pretty much all poisonings in this country are retards, children, and southeast Asians mistaking local mushies for edible ones that grow back home.

these lbms are tough to ID even when they're right in front of you. probably need gill shots, and information about textures, smells, fragility of cap, measurements etc. for species level i wouldn't be surprised if you needed microscopy.
however my guess would be psathyrella or panaeolus species.

Laetiporus Cincinnatus. Fried up nicely
>>
>>1777129
Any reason you used that particular synonym?
>>
>>1777160
I mean, there are a few species called "chicken of the woods." This is the cincinnatus variation. Sulphureus is the other common one. The cincinnatus has a lighter coloration. Usually white edges and salmon interior. Underside is white unlike sulphureus which has a yellow underside. Most people just call any orange-ish shelf polypore chicken of the woods thinking it's all the same species.
>>
>>1777168
I thought species synonyms were the exact same species.
>>
>>1777170
"Chicken of the woods" are all in the Laetiporus genus. There are different "species" in that genus. For example Laetiporus huroniensis is indistinguishable from Laetiporus Sulphureus. But Laetiporus huroniensis is poisonous to about 10% of the population. This is why I only forage the Cincinnatus species. It is different than Sulphureus so I can be sure it's not the potentially poisonous Laetiporus huroniensis
>>
>>1777129
nice find

>>1777170
>>1777191
cincinnatus has a white underside, sulphureus has a yellow underside.

cincinnatus tastes and cooks better too in my opinion too

>But Laetiporus huroniensis is poisonous to about 10% of the population.
I've heard that's because the huroniesis tends to grow on conifers so it's more likely to accumulate chemicals that will trigger allergic reaction/give you an upset stomach

?
>I've heard that's because the huroniesis tends to grow on conifers so it's more likely to accumulate chemicals that will trigger allergic reaction/give you an upset stomach
It grows on the same hardwood as Laetiporus Sulphureus. It's the reason that Chicken of the woods has been a "mild risk" mushroom for so long. It has a poisonous cousin that it interbreeds with. Cincinnatus is the only safe chicken of the woods

I recently found some sulphureus for the first time, on an oak. The texture was very fine but I was rather disappointed with the taste; it was mild with a slight sourness and also starchiness that left the tip of my tongue feeling dry. Nothing resembling chicken (or lobster as some say) which the many choice russulas beats it at. I even found the giant polypore to be much more tastier and similar tasting to steak. Maybe it was just this particular example, but it was young, clean and tender.

I live in NW Kentucky, non-native so I don't know the land too well. I just drove around chasing the Ohio River yesterdau and found an area that looked like flooded frequently. Closest tributaries to me I know of are Tradewater River and the Wabash, but the Wabash is in IN and ovoids aren't really known for showing up there so I'll probably just stick with Tradewater.
>>
>>1779858
did you eat it all or just cut off the soft ring around the cap?
>>
>>1779897
my bad i thought you meant something else, pretty sure you're not supposed to eat the entire sulphureus either though
>>
>>1779858
i can't verify this, but i've heard sulphureus is really more of a species complex and some patches are not very palatable. keep looking anon

>>1777191
It's been a while since I looked into it, but I think cincinnatus and sulphureus are the same species, just different variations. I think some people write it as L. sulphureus var. cincinnatus.

>>1777129
Also, the convention when stating species is to capitalise the genus and keep the species lowercase
>>
>>1777678
No it's substrate dependent and its just a variation of the L. sulphureus. cincinnatus is also just a variation of the same species. You only have to be careful of chicken growing on conifers
>>
>>1781111
that's wood ear - at least in my country it's unmistakable. check a local field guide though.

>>1781116
from the texture of the cap i think pluteus and megacollybia are both decent candidates, spore print would separate them.

>>1781125
i'd be interested to see an id for this one, i can't place it.

>>1781128
one of those tremella species? though they usually are less rigid and more transparent than this looks. definitely one of the jelly fungi.

>>1781137
>>1781135
unfortunately these pics are too low quality to take a guess. probably need to see the gills anyway.
>>
>>1781168
telling you now its not edible
youre making prints for LBMs, its a waste of time
search harder for some easily recognisable edibles like chicken of the woods, maitake/hen of the woods, morels, chantarels
>>
>>1781191
The first isn't little and the second isn't brown. Neither of those look anything like LBMs.
>>
>>1781162
taste test is actually pretty important in some genuses, like russula and lactarius. it's safe if you nibble a tiny amount and spit. though i wouldn't suggest it if you can't nail the genus with 100% confidence.

>>1781194
i think those two you posted can probably get genus with reasonable confidence and enough information. species would probably require someone very familiar with your local area. true LBMs have a brown spore print as well as being small and brown.

>>1781116
followup - take a look at megacollybia rodmani.
>>
>>1781205
thanks for all your help anon, i looked into jelly fungi and I'm sure it's this one.

what a neat guy. it really does look similar to a bullfrog. i wonder if that serves some function or if it's just coincidental.
you've got some interesting specimens, unfortunately my knowledge of australian mushrooms is non-existent and i believe they're relatively poorly documented. maybe some gill shots and spore prints would help though.

They really are, I have a field manual of sorts but despite what it has, it isn't even close to comprehensive.

definitely free - see that "bald" ring around the stem. i'd guess the area they're in had trees some years ago and they're growing from buried wood or wood chips.
do the gills smell of radishes?
anyway pluteus petasatus is my guess, but it could be a couple of pluteus species. microscopy would confirm for sure. probably edible but don't eat them based on my id.
i wouldn't be too worried about kids provided they aren't prone to eating random shit. maybe kids in general are, i dunno.

i didn't smell anything, but i have an absolute shit sense of smell. they were in a spot where there was a box elder tree we took down and ground the stump about 4 years ago.

no worries. sweeping statements aren't great in mycology, but the genera with gills that go from white to pink are relatively safe. entoloma, pluteus, volvariella, i don't know of any species considered seriously deadly. mostly shit your brains out stuff. just know that observing that colour change is critical.

I don't have any good pictures, but I've been growing brown, yellow, and blue tree oysters from a local starter kits. They were just grow bags with sawdust and the mycelium pre-grown surrounded by a burlap sack. All I really had to do was to cut a slit into the sack and keep everything moist. The mushrooms have been coming up, and the first sack (brown tree oyster) has already been harvested.
Anyways, I had the idea to buy a manure and compost mixture and some hay, go to a shady, moist stretch of the woods, and make a little mushroom patch. I found a nice and recessed spot next to some mossy logs, laid down the compost/manure mixture, spread mycelium-sawdust from the grow bag, and covered it with some hay that I watered. Do you guys think this will bear any fruit? I also got a few logs from a somewhat recently felled plot of land and made some pseudo-plugs with wet mycelium sawdust and crisco.

Also, the burlap on my growing kits has been getting moldy. Should I still go for a second set, or just add more mycelium to the mushroom patch? I have no idea what impact the mold will have on the mushrooms.

How do I identify mushrooms properly. Are there any good books on foraging that will help me develop this skill or should I just go out take pictures and compare?
>>
>>1790274
Get a good field guide for your area and learn about local species. Learn what features are typical of a given genus - this will help you have an idea even if you find something unfamiliar. Spend as much time looking at actual specimens as you can, and observing properties like cap texture, smells, the way the flesh breaks, since these things are tough to describe with words.
After you spend time looking at them closely you'll develop a feel for things and ID gets easier.
Probably the most important features are spore colour, gill attachment to the stem and presence of veils. That alone isn't enough for ID though.

you can clone or take mycelium from wild specimens, but it's a lengthy process and you're not guaranteed a good strain for cultivation
i've also heard people clone from shop-bought fungi. probably a good choice but you'll need good equipment for keeping a sterile working environment and agar plates.

certainly coprinoid - the gills appear to be deliquescing, and that's probably all we can know without microscopy. if i really had to call it i'd say coprinellus is the genus on account of the granular cap. to my knowledge there's no way to narrow it down further from pictures alone.
fortunately this is probably a sign of high quality soil, and the fungi is making more nutrients available to your plant.

Is there any real way to clone/grow from spores without Agar? I'm trying to figure out a way I can start growing mushrooms for food in a long term way if SHTF and it seems like to keep a steady crop you need agar at some point. Anyone have any ideas?
>>
>>1803336
it gets a little complicated, but you can start a culture by just dumping viable spores on a substrate. two spores combine and that's when genetic material gets swapped around, so the resulting culture might be quite different from what produced the spores. that's why cloning is preferred for maintaining a consistent culture.
cloning has its disadvantages too, namely that the strain will eventually die of old age. they've got good techniques to make them last as long as possible, though.
in a SHTF scenario you'd be happy to have anything i suppose, so if agar wasn't available i'd find some nice wild specimens, harvest spores, dump into a reasonably sterile substrate and hope for the best. with enough tries you should get a good culture.
>>
>>1803376
Awesome thanks. Would straw and sawdust be a substrate you could do that with do you think?
>>
>>1803384
straw is probably ideal in SHTF because you can get it sterile enough with only regular boiling. wood and sawdust need to be completely sterilised in a pressure cooker/autoclave. well, not strictly true - it's possible to use sawdust without complete sterilisation but your odds aren't great because of the high contamination risk. the downside of straw is not as many species will grow on it.
another strategy to consider would be inoculating wooden logs, which don't need sterilisation if they're reasonably fresh. i'm not sure how easy it'd be to inoculate them with just spores though.

Greetings mycos! I was gifted with a lovely chicken of the woods today. I plan to fry up some of it which is how I've enjoyed it in the past but it's a decent sized one and I'm wondering if any of you have other ideas for how to make it's unique nature shine in a dish.
>>
>>1804393
tear it up into bite sized strips and batter and deep fry it
then give it your friends and tell them it's popcorn chicken, they won't believe you when you tell them it's actually a mushroom
>>
>>1804194
gills are the most important part of id, colour over time and attachment to stem

>>1804256
probably Russula species

>>1804393
i've heard they go well substituting for chicken in a pie

I found some angels wings (pleurocebella porrigens) supposedly they are edible but I've read that there's been an event where a bunch of old Japanese dudes with kidney issues ate some and died. Apparently they have some toxin that normally gets filtered out by your kidneys, so these guys kidneys just didn't work. I have no kidney issues, do you guys think I should eat them?
>>
>>1804516
seems like a good guess to me. truth is the Coprinellus species require microscopy to separate, but visually i'd call this Coprinellus micaceus.

>>1804524
the difference is hard to call when the flesh is thin. however the Pleurocybella only grows on conifers.

>more than 2 months and my shiitake block hasn't started popcorning/browning/fruiting yet

Is anything wrong with it or do I need to just wait longer? It's fully colonized and was releasing some liquid a few weeks ago. Last week I decided to cold shock it in the fridge. Still no changes.

>>1804541
I know it's an angels wings. It was growing on a hemlock. The question is whether it's safe to eat or not.

my bad, i just looked at the picture and didn't read your post for some reason. personally i wouldn't eat anything that's associated with deaths, it's just not worth it. i wouldn't be super worried if i ate it by accident though.

>>1804968
certainly one of the green Russulas - it would depend pretty heavily on your location. take a look at Russula heterophylla. i don't think this is virescens.

>>1804969
looks like an Amanita species. did it smell of anything distinctive?

i'm no expert on Amanitas but Amanita gemmata seems reasonable to me. citrina could also be a candidate, but that smells of raw potato apparently so would be easy to rule out.

spore print would narrow this to a couple choices. to get all the way you might need to taste a small piece.

how do you identify these without getting them mistaken for something poisonous?
>>
>>1806139
the following is true for any species, read a lot about its descriptions from multiple sources. find out what you can about similar species.
then, spend a good amount of time actually looking at real specimens. and i mean looking, smelling, feeling textures, possibly tasting. not only the one you want, but lookalikes too. after a while you'll gain "vision" for that group of species and then it won't be difficult.
all of that said i personally can't confirm if what anon found is what he said it is. you're probably better off buying/growing if you want to party.

Can anyone help me identify these? They were off the trail in a semi-dry cut of woodland. They're only about an inch tall, couldn't really get a picture off their underside and didn't wanna rip one up. Northen Idaho.
>>
>>1771162
Yeah

Narrative wise, the first couple of chapters it's great (the whole biological internet idea) but then after that it gets a bit dry and is just loads of really cool findings and snippets of information from research.

Still a fascinating read, would defo recommend

So you still got effects after boiling it? Or were you just drunk. I wouldn't seek them out to eat but I thought boiling removed the psychoactives and they could be eaten fairly safely that way if you had to. Safely as in not go all alice in wonderland in a survival situation.

Can I get an id on this bad boy?
>>
>>1807426
this might be something like Stereum ostrea, if the underside doesn't have pores. If there's pores then it'll probably be Trametes versicolor. the colourations on these species are really variable.
>>
>>1806139
1.) they have gills (this exculdes all boletes)
2.) they bruise distinctily blue
bingo. all mushrooms that do this are necesarily magic. then is just a matter of finding which species.
bonus: almost all magic mushrooms are LBMs excluding the flamboyant cubensis and the weird weraroa.

>>1806148
yes it is. i know my stuff.

there's a few boletes with this general look so it can be a bit tricky, but i think this is Hortiboletus rubellus. i'm surprised to see it growing in a pot since they're mycorhizzal with trees, particularly oaks. what are you growing in the pot?
>>
>>1809756
>>1808938
i just read Hortiboletus rubellus is rather rare in the US, so actually this is more likely to be Boletus harrisonii. i can't see any small orange dots at the base of the stem either which i think is required for rubellus.
>>
>>1809756
This pot contains a blackberry vine. Soil should be a mixture of, “miracle grow moisture control” and compost/manure.

Panaeolus. assuming you're in the uk, looks very much like Panaeolus foenisecii. spore print would confirm.

>>1809871
that's interesting. maybe it's managing to grow from wood in your soil. if you like you could cut it in half longways and inspect for very small orange dots at the base of the interior of the stem.
>>
>>1808903
>>1808922
They look like Pleurotus pulmonarius to me, with the gills running down the stem, which attaches from the side. Still...
>Hey guys can I eat these? Nvm couldn't wait half an hour to see if anyone can confirm lol.
Why bother posting at all? Further, though this isn't really a problem with oyster lookalikes that I know of, there are poisonous mushrooms out there where, if you eat them, you are a dead man walking by the time you start showing any symptoms.

I'm brand new to foraging and I only took this one because I'm pretty sure it's reishi. If someone could help identify the rest I'd be super grateful.

>>1810443

this one is reishi, Ganoderma tsugae. the tree looks like eastern hemlock to me.

>>1810449
>>1810452
probably also reishi, but the colouration is a little less typical, so to be 100% confident i'd work my way through this key unless i was super familiar with the Ganodermas:
https://mushroomexpert.com/ganoderma.html

most people just lump the similar species together as reishi though, as far as i know they're all safe to consume. still unless you've IDd with confidence, don't eat.

>>1810475
unfortunately a little too degraded, the spots could've been destroyed. to save my sanity it'd probably label it Hortiboletus sp. and move on. the red capped, blue staining boletes are a nightmare.
>>
>>1810491
Any suggestions on how I should prepare this >>1810443 big reishi?
>>
>>1810496
i've actually never eaten it since they don't grow locally, but i'll tell you what i've heard. if it's still very young and soft you could cook them like other mushrooms - this one looks too big for that. typically the tougher ones are prepared as a tea from long soaking, or made into a tincture. i think you can dry and powder them too.
if you haven't seen it already, Learn Your Land is a great source for identifying common medicinals:
