Heres a couple of things you might expect to find if hunting in the NE today. The rain we had a couple of days ago was good but not really enough. The weather has been very nice though.
Saw quite literally 500+ pounds of Honey mushroom today, (Armillaria mellea.)heres some pics and the three pounds worth picking. They can also get quite large. That knife is 4.5 inches. Those big ones are over 1.5 ft. and the caps are 6" + across. Not good for eating when they are that big. In fact it's very hard to find suitable quality. They grow very quickly and the bugs seem to really love them. This is definately a right time, right place, kind of mushroom. Oh yeah, they most often grow in clustered troops, both in mixed woods and open areas. Since this fungi is the largest organism on the planet, your chances of finding it are pretty good.
A Parasol, most likely (Lepiota acutesquamosa)But i'm guessing
Some Stink Horn eggs. Maybe dctyphora duplicata or beacause it was found in a stump phallus ravenelii
