Just some nice mushrooms.

Thought this one was pretty cool looking. It is a Hydnum probly the Sarcodon imbricatum (scaly hydnum).

And there were a ton of these Coprinus comatus growing in wood chips and sawdust mix down in a logging area. The biggest one I found was almost 2ft tall.

Nice mushrooms.

There are 2 very similar mushrooms to the tooth fungus you have. Sarcodon imbricatum is more common here this year (some years it's the other), and (at least here) is a pretty good edible mushroom. Sarcodon scabrosum is almost identical, but it tastes extremely bitter (just lick a tiny piece from the cap edge to find out) and usually has a deep bluish purple area near the base of the stem. Of course, S. scabrosum is completely inedible.

If you're into such things, the Shaggy Manes are cultivatable. It's not done commercially because they go bad before they could go to the store for distribution. If somebody comes up with a strain of them which is sterile and doesn't deliquesce they'll probably be rich.

Happy mushrooming!

Licked it and it's good. There was also no dark bruising so that's why I figured it was the imbricatum.
I havn't tried the shaggy manes as far as eating goes.It is the first i've found.We have tons of the common inky caps around and I have been wanting to find the shaggy mane because they looked so neat in the books. They were everywhere. Some were already a mess and other were just pushing up. It was a very cool site to see.
