    I'm starting this thread in spirit of the guess the rock thread on Shroomery. If you guess the genus and species correctly and get confirmation from the poster, you get to choose a mushroom to identify. Please only post mushrooms with clues and details which make it identifiabe. Blurry pictures and rare mushrooms are fair game, as long as the picture contains sufficient detail to determine the species. If you don't post microscopic details, any member of the correct genus which is a 100% macroscopic match will be considered correct.

    If no followup mushroom is posted within 48 hours after a correct guess, anyone may post the next mushroom.

    I will start with this one:

    because here was a minor difference in he macroscopic appearance between what she called it and what i called it. to whit;
    I called it p. varius http://www.mushroomexpert.com/polyporus_varius.html
    http://www.rogersmushrooms.com/gallery/DisplayBlock~bid~6677.asp
    which never seems to mention an enrolled margin when young, like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyporus_leptocephalus, and although i've seen 40 or more specimens, I've never seen that either. According to this they are one and he same.
    see, i'd have taken 1 look, like I did, and said no :) now you know why :shrug2:
    @ riverdweller; yes, proceed

    I was going to shoot for H. pacificus. I found what seems like a good website on the Hyrophorus genus here which pointed me in the direction. :link:

    Here is my entry,

    Actually, it kind of looks like me if you were looking at me on acid, :confused1:
