    Lots of cool stuff. More turkey tail (that I didn't take pics of)
    Amanita formosa? ( 1 olde english bulldog!)
    Many unknowns. Kept finding these awesome smelling large gilled suckers too. 1101121014b.jpg 1101121014a.jpg 1101121019.jpg 1101120950.jpg 1101121003.jpg 1101121042a.jpg 1101121013a.jpg 1101121013.jpg 1101121014.jpg 1101120945.jpg 1101121042.jpg 1101120950a.jpg

    this may get a bit complicated and confusing because on my screen the images are kinda jumbled and some are just links, but I will try.

    #1 Because it appears to be auto-digesting I would call a Coprinoid. It looks strange, but it may just be the angle of the shot.
    COuld be Coprinus atramentarius?

    then there is a link.

    #3 the large one with the attached gills and up turned cap: Appears to be "bleeding" latex so I would put it into the genus Lactarius. Also appears to be staining red. perhaps putting it into the Lactarius uvidus group?

    I'm going to skip #4. I find them or something similar all the time but to be honest I'm pretty terrible with polypores... = /

    #5 is a puppy!

    #6 I don';t want to make a guess on without more pictures and some more info like what it was growing off of.

    #7 I would call Coprinellus micaceus. Coprinellus because they are auto-digesting and micaceus because it looks like they have small shaggy scales on the cap. oh same for # 8 and 9 :)

    #10 is an Amanita species. The universal veil remnants on the cap and the volva sac at the base are the give aways. It does remind me of a coccora. But there are a few species I guess it could be.

    #11 I would need more pics to make a guess at.

    and #12 ...well yeah not so good at polypores lol.

    Well those are my guess. I hope they help in some way or at least point you in the right direction.

    :cheers:

    I'm wondering if 4 isn't the top of 3 and if they (it) is lactarius deliciosus.... 3 certainly looks close
    6 ima bet is a tricholoma, maybe tricholoma venenatum?
    your amanita may be A. gemmata

    I noticed my camera distorts color, which sucks.
    Thanks for the replies guys! It was just great to get out and they just looked cool.
    I should've done a better job with the ones I'm actually curious About .
    Ill go back tomorrow. The one with the cross section is the same as the one with the white stem & up turned gills. It had a light brown cap with pinkish gills, most upturned.( massive, wide, white gills) White stem, pinkish cast. They had a slight fruity alluring scent. There were hundreds of em & seemed to be the main show of the area. Mostly in the sunny clearings of trails. Some growing on fallen trees with soil pockets.
    Its high time I invest in a book. Definitely!

    & yes chosen one. The only thing we can say for sure from my crappy pics is that dog is dying to lick faces immediately!

    The polypores look a lot like Trametes elegans but I don't know where they are from so just a guess.
