    So I took a little stroll through some local woods yesterday. Someone near me posted that they found some baby chanterelles a few days ago, so I figured I would check a spot where I know they occur.....nothing :(
    I did see a few interesting things though, to wit;
    SANY0055.jpg SANY0066.jpg monotropa uniflora SANY0063.jpg SANY0064.jpg a pluteus I haven't seen around ( I would guess a pluteus, I didn't bring it home :( ) SANY0057.jpg jack-o-lantern, omphalatus illudens :) first ones I ever found. I'm wondering i this is, in act, what the other guy found and was calling chanterelles, because I didn't see any SANY0061.jpg SANY0062.jpg I'm guessing pholiota species maybe
    As always comments, critisizm, or alternate/species ID suggestions are always welcome :)

    Man those jacks look just like chants, how do you tell them apart? Aren't they toxic?

    Good to see you're getting out my man:)Are you not suffering from the same intense heat and lack of rain that we are?Major,once you get familiar with Chants,those Jacks are super easy to tell apart,and yes they are Poisonous.

    I think in the pic they are growing on a stump, and I haven't seen any chants on stumps am I correct in that assumption? That a chant won't ever be growing on a stump?

    chants do grow in clumps close to trees, the best way to tell them apart is jack-o-lanterns have gills, like most mushrooms, flat and tall, and chants just have veins or ridges

    Gills it is then! I thought that was an indicator. Yeah kb it's hot as shit here today and our two hottest months are yet to come. It wouldn't be so bad if the fracking wind would blow. It was in the eighties at 8:00 a.m. this morning

    it was 94f yesterday and 95f today :( I was really sweating my ass off, hunting yesterday :( practically no rain either :( I have sun-poisoning blisters all up and down my arms from helping dad redo the whole greenhouse. Spent about 30 hours pulling every staple, painting every stud and replasticing the thing...man it's hot!
