    Came across a ton of mushrooms today here in Central PA. Found some cool coral mushrooms, common puff balls, yellowdrop milkcaps and more giant sized bitter boletes than I could shake a stick at. However, I did come across two that I harvested to do a spore print and marked their locations for a later follow up, was wondering if anyone could add some input on these.

    Both were growing out of deciduous trees which were mostly alive, both have pronounced stems into gills. The first I'm assuming is some type of oyster but not sure of the variety, the second I believe is a honey fungus mushroom but I've never come across them since I started foraging. There was no ring on the stipe.

    Late, but the second does look like an Armillaria sp. and the first possibly oyster (underside pic would help)
