This the second year they have come up in my front yard. I'm surely not lucky enough to have edibles so easily gathered. Any help would be appreciated. //i1275.photobucket.com/albums/y454/mrgta67/DSCF0378_zps00a7ef25.jpg[/IMG]

Both photos are of the same bunch of shrooms.

The greengills are up in full force right now in Missouri, not sure about Knew York.

So that sorta helps to ID them IMO

That makes perfect sence Veronica....about the sensibilus(I remember that thread :) Yeah we have the green-gills popping up here too,and I saw some ruffle topped Amanita thersi too!!!
Sure wish the rain would stop skirting us up here in KC proper :-/

All I am finding is red "x"s at work :p Hope the rain kicks in KC RM Hunter, they just keep coming in Ohio though the rain has stopped for the most part, lobsters. boletes, oysters etc. Strangely noone anywhere is posting herecium, anywhere.

Hmmm.... Almost surely not a Russula! They weren't brittle or chalky and the upturned wavy edge was there right when they popped up. Also very thin flesh but huge gills that are kind of fluffed out...

All right! Pretty sure we have a winner ;)

Megacollybia playtyphylla, or one of its close relatives, looks like what I have here! I think my specimens were very waterlogged and therefore somewhat deformed. Hygrophorus camarophyllus has a few characteristics which did not fit, but another really good guess!

Thanks fogwhisper!!

Hmm... I responded to you, Veronica, yesterday but the message didn't post I guess! They were too soggy to collect, bring home, and get a spore print, but I did notice there was white spore dust on some debris that was under the mushrooms. They were growing on the ground in a high-duff area, so probably on buried oak. Sorry for the delayed response. Do you think it could be something other than Megacollybia? I know just some crappy pics of the growth habit and nothing much else is not the nbest set of ID tools, but I was just looking to be put in the right direction. Don't worry, I won't eat anything that I haven't identified 100% !!

I was just asking.
And as KC has surely sumized, I was actually just messing with fogwisper lol

As fogwisper himself has stated, you ought not try to ID a mushroom from a picture alone. Other factors come into play.
I think Fogwisper's suggestion is credible and possible and a darn fine place to start . But then again a rain soaked mushroom can be very misleading and a lot of them wont give off a print when they are waterlogged. Making a 100 percent ID nearly impossible

Your not going to eat it so all that is mute

Happy hunting
