    Very nice pics. Scutellinia scutellata was my favorite pic there.

    I wouldn't recommend eating raw wild mushrooms. I've always had too much of a problem with maggots... With cubes, anything carbonated would kill the bitterness right away. Even tea mixed with club soda. My favorite way is to sweeten tea with an equal volume of Cascade Ice. Then when I'm coming down, I'll make cheesy scrambled eggs with the mush tea chunks to keep the buzz going. Everything tastes good, and there's little waste.

    Haven't tried gyms, but it would be cool if carbonated water killed it's taste too.

    Cool tip I will have to try carbonated drinks but I think gyms are too bitter to mask easily. I use lots of honey and cinnamon sugar. It ends up a pumpkin spice like tea. Not the worst but you will always burp up their taste. They are unique and worth a try when of course your positive of your finds.

    I guess you'll know in a bit. I hope it was pholiota. :)

    thanks John! I think you're probably right about Ductifera.

    Would you like to take a look at some spores for me? :)

    Any ideas on the cedar gyms yet? It's the skinny stipe and light color with small size ( along with the habitat ) that leaves me to believe these are something un described yet. Plz look and throw out thoughts people. Mushie love

    Cool hunt fry! Your unknown Gymnopilus is G. Braendlei. It is seperable from luteofolius and aeruginosus by comparing the smaller size, the pink cutis fading to buff beneath darker squamules, fibrillose decoration near the pileal margin that remains connected to the cortinate partial veil remnants until the inrolled margin opens completely and flattens, the light, almost white gill color reminiscent of Pholiota, the highly colored stipe apex that fades long after the pileus has and finally the sub-bulbous base that may be attached to colored basal mycelium. Oh, also the solitary to scattered occurrence on hardwood.

    I haven't been able to nail down what type of hardwood I find them on in N. Illinois, care to hazard a guess? I see a bunch of maple leaves in your photos...

    Ah, missed that part as I read your description on another site first. In that case, the ecology info for G. braendlei will need to be updated in future publications.

    I never discount the possibility that I may be wrong. I feel very confident with this ID though. Imo, braendlei is a very recognizable species.

    Here is one of my observations confirmed with microscopy, if you click on the "about" link I've uploaded Hesler's original description-
