I would say that what we can see of the pileus is actually the underside showing the pores of a very large Boletus species, it looks like the cap is extremely upturned!
There also looks to be some small specimens of a Mycena species fruiting around the base!
Nice find!

Mushroom # 2







Habitat: found on the eastside along some trail with bark/wood chips. it was on the edge of the trail near logs and shit.


Gills: light brown.


Stem: stem is kinds fuzzy/hairy. it gets darker towards the bottom. at the bottom there is also some mild blue bruising. not alot though.


Cap: lighter brown cap. kinds fuzzy somewhat.


Bruising: only towards the bottom of the stem


Other information: just wondering what it is. saw the bruising and thought it was kinda interesting.


Mushroom # 3







Habitat: growing on the side of a dead alder stump/tree. they were growing all the way up it. there were TONS.


Gills: white / kinda beige.


Stem:....doesn't really have a stem...


Cap: white/beige color. very smooth.


Bruising: none


Other information: i think these are a type oyster mushrooms maybe? i dunno. they weren't growing in a big bundle/group. id saw they grew in groups of 3 maybe 4?


Mushroom # 4













Habitat: growing on the edge of the trail. i was gonna leave them behind but i noticed a little bit of bluing and they kinda resembled some kind of psilocybe.


Gills: somewhat dark beige/light brown.


Stem: white. stems were kinda dirty and had some blue bruising on them. but they were white.


Cap:i don't want to say yellow, but they were almost a very very very light yellow...a light beige i guess. but they were pretty dried out so dunno if that's how they normally look.


Bruising: slight blueing around the caps and blueing on the stems.


Other information: i found these over by my baeo spot. in a wetland area. there were only a few of them, no big cluster or anything.

i don't think the cap was upturned. the base of the cap was pretty clearly separate from the stem. it was a weird find indeed. i actually found it by an army reserve storage facility thing. so it could be some weird mushroom effected by some toxic ooze, kinda like the TMNT!!! but anyway...weird indeed!

#2 looks like it could be an Inocybe species.
#3 looks to be a Pleurotus species.
#4 Is a Psilocybe species, maybe P. pelliculosa or P. silvatica.
Please make spore prints of all your finds for a better Id attempt!

Your welcome, I think your first mushroom is definitely a Boletus species with a very upturned cap, the pore surface attachment is probably free from the stipe which made it look like the margin of the pileus was just detaching from the stipe!
I think it is one of the species belonging in the Boletus edulis group.

Yes greatfulhunters, it does look like Inocybe calamistrata.

#3 ive found often, i didnt think it was an edible Pleurotus. are there non eatable species in the Pleurotus family?

i thought since the wavy margin it was another species.

Oyster mushrooms are in the Pleurotus genus, all are edible!

3) Oyster mushrooms
4) Interesting little bluing Psilocybe sp.

Yeah, thats a blown out bolete.  Inski got it right.

I am curious about that little Psilocybe.  Someone needs to check the microscopic features.
