This is a thread to post your fall 2016 finds–Maitake (hen of the woods), Sulphur shelf (chicken of the woods), and the rest.

I’ll start.

I went out over the weekend and found a couple of puffball mushrooms (calvatia species). Very tasty.

I went to a reliable spot and found a massive oak tree with two large maitakes at the bottom–unfortunately they were too old and also waterlogged from the rain.

They would either have to have been last year’s or have come up in August/very early September. Is this even possible?

Please share your finds!

Could they have been Berkeley polypores or black staining polypores? They are similar and could already have been up for a while.

Thanks for the replies. Sorry I am just getting back to it, I didn’t get an email telling me there were posts.

They could absolutely be Berkeley’s or black stainers, I think that is very probable. They were pretty rotten so I couldn’t tell. Next time I will try to take photos.

I found another big puffball today.

Anyone find any chickens?
