Thought you might like my facebook shroom album. The pix were all taken here on my property, and include a farmer's market booth of foraged stuff. If you can make a positive ID on any I'd sure appreciate it.

Oops, should include that I am in Western Oregon, and the booth is NOT mine, it it "The Mushroomery" at the Saturday Market in McMinnville.

Wow, you have some fantastic photos there.  Nice job!  Perhaps I'll try some mushroom photos as well.

Thanks! It's fun looking for them! There is a really good mushroom class at the college in town that I hope to take someday(bucket list for retirement I guess!)

Great pictures! I just went on a foray today myself -- only found this unidentifiable polypore, though, but a good walk nonetheless.

I thought I might suggest that that Amanita is actually Amanita muscaria var. formosa, which has a yellow-to-beige cap. A. pantherina tends to have moreĀ  dry and radially-lined scaly gold-to-brown gaps, rather than the more uniform and viscid cap of A. muscaria.

Fun fact! A. muscaria is actually edible by boiling the sliced up mushroom in a few changes of salted water (possibly unsalted, have yet to try this), and is said to be delicious. This leeches out all the muscimol and ibotenic acid, which make it psychoactive and partially toxic (it's really only deadly in huge amounts of raw flesh). It is served as a delicacy this way in certain areas of Japan.

i am kicking around the idea of developing areas of our woods as a place to start putting mushroom areas..it will take a good deal of work, we used to be able to grow morels quite well here..but things have to be redone for a better situation for them again..since all the construction..but i'm sure we can do that..and i thought of plugging some oak logs and maybe some others..as a trial mushroom farm..as mushrooms are some of my fave foods and cost me a bundle when i have to buy them.

Sounds like it would be very cool when finished, quite a prize to  have on your property.
