Fairy Ink Cap
  Fairy Ink Cap August 23, 2010
This one is classified as edible. I have heard, however, that it doesn't taste all that great. The Coprinus genus is often confused with the Galerina, which is deadly. So DO NOT INGEST these if you find them growing unless you have them identified by a professional who knows EXACTLY how to tell the difference. Fairy Ink Cap

  Scaly Hedgehog Fungus June 30, 2010
It didn't have any stem. The Scaly Hedgehog is edible. Many sources report it has a bitter taste, but others have found it delicious and suspect that the bitter specimens may be similar related species. On the underside it sports greyish brittle teeth instead of gills, and has white flesh. The spore print is brown. It is associated with spruce (Abies), appearing in autumn. It ranges throughout North America and Europe, although collections from the British Isles are now assigned to another spec Scaly Hedgehog Fungus

These distinctive mushrooms appear honeycomb-like in that the upper portion is composed of a network of ridges with pits between them. These ascocarps are prized by gourmet cooks, particularly for French cuisine. Commercial value aside, morels are hunted by thousands of people every year simply for their taste and the joy of the hunt. The American state of Minnesota has adopted the more Morel

Oranje Jelly
  Oranje Jelly March 15, 2009
Dacrymyces palmatus is a yellow-orange jelly fungus which closely mimics Tremella mesenterica, the common Witch's Butter. The two taxa are best told apart in the field by differences in habit and substrate. Tremella mesenterica is a parasite of Stereum species and typically fruits with its host on hardwoods usually with intact bark. In contrast, Dacrymyces palmatus occurs on decorticated conifer wood and is not associated with Stereum species. Despite their similar appearance, the two taxa are a Oranje Jelly
