some pics of my little hunt in New England today...

hi everyone! today i found this massive patch of puffballs, lycoperdon exipuliforme maybe, growing outside of my uncle's house, so i took some pics and did some picking! i'm still trying to identify them for sure though, they seem to be lacking the typical stem-like part typical of that type of puffball.




then i got curious and kept looking. i think this is a russula, perhaps a fetid?



then i found this hungry lookin slug having some lunch!


and that was my day! enjoy!

Nice colection + photos, I'm not too sure about the suspected russula.. A good feature might be that russula species should have brittle and crumbly flesh, snapping somewhat like a piece of chalk.

what led me to believe it to be a fetid russula was the striate margin. they're a little gone-by at this point, so a bit hard to i.d.

The first ones are gem studded puffballs Lycoperdon perlatum, I'm guessing L. exipuliforme is a synonym. They start out round like that and develop the elongated base at maturity. You have found them at the perfect stage for eating. :thumbup: Puffballs are not my favorite but some people really like them.

The second mushroom does not look like a Russula to me, but it certainly is fetid. :lol: I crack me up.

The mushrooms in the third photo appear to be Honey Mushrooms, Armillaria mellea. They are a very tasty wild mushroom. Be sure to check for small black hairs on the center of the cap, and verify white spore print before consuming.

Nice finds and nice photos.
