    I recently came across a stunning sight that made for a tasty dinner of Agaricus subrutilescens. About a mile from my house. Positively delicious.

    Olin, I DID take a couple core samples and put them on MEA. However, absolutely NOTHING has happened. I think I also put some spores into MEA with the same result. We will see!!

    Does anyone recognize this one? It falls off of every ID key I've put it to and the obvious search terms describing it are too common to narrow it down (for me anyway). It is growing on a fallen alder, right beside some turkey tail. Weather is cool (35-50F) and wet. Sea-level, Oregon coast, late December. No spore print yet, there's only two of these I've found and I want to see where they're going. Maybe I'll try to print it intact...secure a cover in place, put a half white/half black paper under it and let it sit for a couple days. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks GG, I believe you're right. From Wikipedia :"The gills, which produce basidiospores on their surface split when the mushroom dries out, earning this mushroom the common name Split Gill. It has more than 28,000 sexes.[3]
    It is common in rotting wood, but can also cause disease in humans.[4]


    Also from Wikipedia "the most common mushroom on earth"

    Congratulations Pistil, you found the most common mushroom in the world:clap2:! What's even worse is I've been foraging for a year and have never seen it till now, hehe, some forager.

    I guess keys lean toward edible and poisonous mushrooms... the ones you need to know about. This is edible in the sense that you can eat it without ill effects but apparently not that palatable due to rubbery/hairy texture.

    Not many mushrooms out this time of year in New England. This Spectacular specimen however does not mind the cold.

    Lol pistil the pink will throw you. But it look correct to me. Suppose to be good for you but not sure if actual value given its common nature.

    Smaller white variety of Schizophyllum grows here on the east coast. Had a dish contaminated somehow once upon a time. 18 pound substrate pinned in five days before i realized it was not an oyster.
