Interesting find! :laugh: It sure looks like H. crispa. I don't think I would eat them though. If You do, be sure to thoroughly prepare them (either by drying or boiling before cooking).

Helvella and Gyromita can be very dangerous if cooked improperly. Sometimes even proper cooking isn't enough to render them safe.

Even then, they don't taste very good.

I agree with the others. Helvella and Gyromitra can cause poisoning and should not be eaten.

Arora list edibility as: "to be avoided"

Glad to see you're not going to eat those. I got here after the general "don't eat those" rush and didn't get to chime in.

I'll add that Dr. Nancy Weber, the current world authority on these mushrooms says that none of them should be eaten.

And, while you can find people who say that they are safe to eat if prepared correctly, Dr. Alexander Smith (Nancy Weber's father) used to point out that the German authority on the genus Russula died from eating them, and Dr. Smith was certain that that guy knew how to prepare them.

They sure are pretty mushrooms, though. Nice photos and finds.

Happy mushrooming!
