    There's enough info in the second Bolete's photo. Tylopilus indecisus looks like a good match but taste and trees is needed to get further than Tylopilus , really.

    Thanks guys,we're going to get to the bottom of this if it kills me,hehe just kidding:)Tylopilus indecisus Mycorrhizal with hardwoods (especially oaks)and oaks are what I believe they were growing under:)I want to go back badly,and collect them.I know right where I left them,but I just don't feel like getting dirty again today.I'll go first thing in the Morning:)

    A few tips on identifying 'boletes'...
    Take note of the trees, as already stated.
    Cut the mushroom from cap to base of stem and record color changes in the context and stem.
    Bruise the pore surface and record any color changes.
    Taste a bit of the context.
    Look at the stem for reticulation (raised webby patterns). If reticulated, note how much of the stem is patterned and what color the reticulation is.
    Test cap surface, flesh, stem's context and outside with KOH and record the reaction or lack of.

    If you don't have any KOH I would be happy to send you some. I have a ton and it's easy to use and store. PM with your details if you're interested.

    Hope that helps :)

    Thanks for the tips RD:)Oh,and I forgot to answer you when you asked me if they bruised,and that's actually the first thing I do with boletes,is rub my finger across the pores to see if they bruise,and these didn't appear to.Thnaks for the help,and I'll go out in the morning,and get more details:)Also,I would love some KOH,that's really nice of you:)Check your Pm's:)

    Ok,this was the hunt of the century!!! But it all wasn't good news:-(It was so humid,when I went out this morning,half my pics before the humdidty dropped were so foggy,you couldn't even view them:mad1:Plus,my batteries conked out me.I did however bring home some nice batches for Breakfast,lunch,and dinner:)First off,I went back to the Boletes,and they were found under Box Elder,and Red Maple,in case RD,and SG cared:)I also went back to the Stropharia patch,and dug out a whole specimen.All the others were rotten,and this was the only one.It was also attached to underground rotten wood chips.

    [​IMG]

    The wood ears were out in full effect,and I could have picked pounds,upon pounds,but there would be no way I could possibly eat them all,so I left some for the creatures of the woods:)

    [​IMG]

    The Chanterelles were all over the place too,and I did the same,and left a ton!

    [​IMG]

    This is why I left so many,I don't know how I'll ever eat all this as it is!!!

    [​IMG]

    Now some various other mushrooms that I found.I know some of them,but I want you guys to take a stab at them:)

    There were also millions of black berries,and I ate so many,my stomach started to hurt:)

    Thanks for looking:)

    I will say this, chants are a lot better before they are dehydrated/reconstituted. You Should at least try them fresh the first time

    #6 is right,#7 was spongy,and I doubt is Laetiporus sulphureus,it could be,but I never have seen anything like it, and it actually could have been a slime mold.#9 are Psathyrella,and I find them every single time I go out,and I have a few more pictures of the same type on this thread:)#11 may look like xerula,but was in fact,a very fragile mushroom,of which I've never encountered with no tap root.I was thinking Amanita vaginata for the last pic before the berries.Also,what do you think about Gyrodon merulioides for #15 and #16?Thnaks for taking a stab at them,and I know without all the proper information on them,all we can do is guess;-)
