Please confirm my ID of these edibles
    #3233720 - 10/08/04 05:44 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Found this week in park near Milwaukee. The first 2 pictures I believe are elm oysters. They were growing out of the scar from a cut off branch. The spore print is white with a pinkish color. The flesh is firm, cap cream to beige, stem off center. Gills are attached but not descending the stem.





The next picture I believe is a sweettooth. Found growing under pines and mixed hardwoods. It is a firm cap, with irregular shape, obvious teeth instead of gills. The mushroom is about 5" across.



Thanks for the help!

Hi pegasus,

The first one looks right to me, Hypsizygus ulmarius. I've never eaten them but hear they are tough, cook thuroughly.

The second one also appears right, Hydnum umbilicatum or Hydnum repandum, both species are good edibles, however the specimens in your photos look a little past their prime. "Sweettooths" or as we call them in Ohio "Hedgehogs" have solid thick flesh and a mild flavor, however they are best harvested while the margin is still inrolled and the teeth are short. They usually come up in great abundance but blend in with fallen leaves. There are probably more and better ones near where you found those.

:thumbup:Nice finds; enjoy.

Thanks, for the ID confirmation. I'm still learning, so finding out that I identified them correctly is great. I use the older, or tough mushrooms to make mushroom stock! It is a great way to put almost edible mushrooms to good use.

Thanks again!
