St. Georges Mushroom??

Found this growing under an apple tree in the lawn in my back garden earlier. Could it possibly be St. Georges mushroom? http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v446/bobwolf/mushrooms/P1030064.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v446/bobwolf/mushrooms/P1030065.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v446/...

Boletus chrysenteron - Red Cracking Bolete?

Hello all, Found these today at the foot of the garden growing on the grass. I think they are Red cracking Boletes. Anyone offer any opinions on this? All quite small in diameter. Biggest is around 10cm. I've read varying opinions on the eating them if that's what they are. Anyone tried them, is it ...

Chanterelles?

Hi, Came across these in Conifer woodland today. Have read up on loads of different sources on telling the difference between fake chanterelles and the real thing, But have decided not to eat these. They don't seem to have much of an 'apricot' scent, and i'm worried they are too orange. Any thoughts...

Re: Mushroom ID

Saw these by the side of the road today. Not sure at all what they could be... Some of them easily 25cm in diameter. Too big for brittlecaps? http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v446/bobwolf/mushrooms/IMG_1989.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v446/bobwolf/IMG_1985.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/a...

Re: Mushroom ID

Thanks CM.

Looks like you could be right with Tylopilus pseudoscaber, looks a good match.

Re: Mushroom ID

been out looking for mushrooms again this weekend. Found some lovely oyster mushrooms. But not sure on this one. A member of the bolete family? but I can't seem to place which one. The tubes are almost chocolate brown, though they do have a greenish tint in certain lights. The stem slightly bulbous ...

Re: Mushroom ID

Yeah, better safe than sorry I think. Yeah like you say its all good experience, I've only been looking at mushrooms for a few weeks now, but already learnt so much. It all helps build up the knowledge. It's not s deep yellow like some of the photos of yellow stainer I've just looked at. http://img....

Re: Mushroom ID

Unfortunately I think you could be correct here.
I cut the stem and it is slightly yellow although I can't smell any sort of inky smell.
Definitely not going to risk it.

Re: Mushroom ID

Found another couple that look like the possible prince mushroom, very close to the other one I previously found. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v446/bobwolf/mushrooms/IMG_1864.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v446/bobwolf/mushrooms/IMG_1867.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v446/bobwolf...

Re: Mushroom ID

Hi SJ, think you could be right about these. They do look like the other photos of honey fungus I've seen. Like this one... http://www.wildaboutbritain.co.uk/gallery/files/4/8/3/honey-fungus.jpg They weren't on a tree stump, just in the hedge, though oak trees growing out the top of the hedge. There...

Re: Mushroom ID

Thanks, unfortunately didn't eat any this time, maybe they will return next year. Went out walking yesterday and found a couple of different mushrooms. First this Beefsteak mushroom growing at the base of an oak tree... IMG_1818.jpg IMG_1838.jpg Not over struck on the taste of it. But it's interesti...

Re: Mushroom ID

hi Carltonian Man,

thanks for the reply, I left the mushroom out over night and the gills have gone brown, which seems to be much more in keeping with the description of the horse mushroom.

Could it be I just caught this one in a very early stage of development?
