1# is a coral that is edible, 2# we will leave as a mystery for awhile I hope to get some more photos. #3 is Indian pipes not edible (to me) and not a fungus but a good indicator of timing and location for finding chanterelles..#4 is some cinnabar chants just popping up, edible....Forgive my ignorance I only know morels...are these beauties edible? Thx
#1 crown tip coral- edible, taste like pepper- good in egg breakfast, only grows from rotting wood, not the ground. #2 compare to Coral-pink Merulius. not edible but pretty. #3 Indian Ghost pipe flower. Can be made into a tincture for pain, sedative and anxiety relief. #4 Cinnabar chanterelles, edible but takes a lot of them since they only get about an inch tall or so and have thin stalks.
