Michigan and its mushroom species?
    #1807167 - 08/12/03 09:34 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I've already looked through the forums etc... etc.. along with the search feature... I wouldnt be posting otherwise... I'm wondering if anyone knows where or just knows all ( or at least some ) of the different species ( active and non-active ) of mushroom growing in michigan this time of year ( August / Fall ). I've been walking around lately through a forest nearby and there are many different kinds I've found but id like to find out ( approximatly ) what they are. I've looked in the FAQ and the only list there are active species. Id like to find out the non-active, and other poisonous look alikes before I start eating anything I find... Thanks

My first bit of advice would be to go to the local library or book store and get yourself a field guide. Then read it.

Michigan is one of the best documented states, because Alexander Smith lived and worked there.

Beyong that, find a few species that are fairly distinctive, pick them, and bring them home. Make spore prints. Do your best to figure out what they are. Then start a new thread out here and post photos or descriptions (preferably both) of your finds. There are a lot of people here who will be happy to help you identify your finds.

If you're interested in edbile mushrooms and you're just starting out, I'd strongly recommend the book Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America by David W Fischer and Alan E Bessette.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
