    Great tip, thank you.

    CONSTITUTY LUCIWHATSY?? Daaam beat, nice science droppin! I think I found some today. I'm going to pick it tomorrow and try what you said. Found a good patch of chants at lunch but couldn't pick until after work. More examples of clumping chants.
    Jack o lanterns? cool shroom, I thought it was a bolete but it was toothed?

    Are these two different types of chants? The undersides look very different

    Those are jack o'lanterns in your pic barnacle. The toothed shroom is a hedgehog mushroom (hydnum repandum), it's also a choice edible with no poisonous look alikes. And yes, the chants with more pronounced ridges would be cantherellus cibarius and the ones with an almost completely smooth hymenium are c. lateritius.

    First pic looks like a hedgehog mushroom. Second pic is jackolantern. Smooth chants vs golden. I find some like that were the ridges are so tight and forked everywhere it almost looks like a netting at places.

    Yep, I did it just like you said & it worked perfectly. I tried to photo it but couldn't figure out how to set the camera. IMG_6574.JPG So I keep finding tons of these "coral mushrooms". I remember reading that it only grows on dead wood though. Most of what I see is on the ground. I suppose the wood could be in the ground. The patch where my son is looks like it could be following a root system. Do any of you guys eat coral fungus?

    Also I've been meaning to ask when does the chant and trumpet season end?

    Crown tip coral grow on wood and seem to be the popular choice for coral. Apparently a lot of them are edible some don't tast good though. Down here were I am it's not unheard of to find chanterelles well into September.

    Are the 4 images above old man of the woods in different stages of growth? Top and bottom of each of the two mushrooms.

    Are these the coral fungus? Are they edible?

    IMG_4425.JPG IMG_4426.JPG

    Anyone know what this puffball is? Found in the woods.

    Purple ones are Clavaria zollingeri. I don't think the 4 pics are old man if the woods. The coral looking fungus is still hard for me to say as the edible one is said to only grow on wood. Great pics.

    Today's finds. Bunch of hedge hogs, worm free chants, handful of trumpets. Love picking hedgehogs bc They seem to never have bugs. Found 10-11 new trumpet patches but they were all shriveled up already. IMG_6588.JPG IMG_6590.JPG IMG_6616.JPG IMG_6635.JPG

    my guess on the corals is ramaria formosa. They are considered toxic.
