Lobster Info
    #3240366 - 10/10/04 10:13 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Hello!

I was out having Thanks Giving (Canada) dinner at my folks place and went for a short 15 minute walk in the woods.  Loads of shrooms everywhere.

Anyway, I am certain I have found Lobsters.  I didn't have my camera but the description in Mush. Dem. seems to fit perfectly.  There were about 20-30 of them popped up and poking through.  Gorgeous colouring and the beautiful crisp bright white insides. 

Anyway, what I want to know is if there are any look-a-likes.

I'm going back in a few days to try and get some samples and pictures.  I didn't pick any (dumb I know) but I will next time.

Can anyone answer the look-a-like question for me?

Oh yeah, I'm on Vancouver Island and the rain here is great!  I'm just learning but am finding new species to identify every day.  I don't eat anything... maybe next season when I'm more confident :wink:

To my knowledge there are no look alikes. Congratulations :smile: Lobsters are one of the tastiest wild shrooms.

Thanks shroomydan ... I might just have to go out and get them tomorrow :smile:

Wow!  Lobsters and I've only been at this a short time.  What a great sport :smile:

I may have to investigate the local mycology group.

They look almost pock marked. Like they are a little gnarled or rough on the top. At least that's what I've found.

Found about 6 beautiful Lobster mushrooms today myself. They always look like they have battle scars.

Not aware of any look alikes!

Congrats! It is a great hobby! I love it!

Always a surprise!

Happy Thanksgiving!
