If I am not mistaken, the first three pics are of paneaolus antillarum...non active. However, if any of them bruise blue then they are most certainly copelandia cyanescens...active. They will have a black spore print.

The second three look like some kind of chantarelle...although not being from texas, I can not be certain as to the type...around here chantarelles rarely grow directly from logs like that...but usually from buried wood on the forest floor.

Maybe someone from texas can better id the chantarelle like ones. If they are they will most likely be edible.

Cheers...wait for positive Id before ingesting them however.

First pics are inactive Panaeolus Antillarum a cope lookalike. Second set must be something on the Omphalotus specie, they resemble Omphalotus Olivascens aka Jack-O-Lantern, they are poisonous.

I aslo thought of that St , the problem is they are lookalikes , look here.
In reply to:

Comments
This much sought-after edible is recognized by a fleshy, yellow, vase-shaped, fruiting body, wavy margin, and shallow, ridge-like gills that are conspicuously decurrent. Unfortunately for mycophagists, it often grows well protected in a thick understory of Toxicodendron diversilobum (Poison Oak). Collectors should be aware that other yellow mushrooms are occasionally mistaken for the chanterelle, notably Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca (False Chanterelle), Ompahlotus olivascens (Jack O'Lantern Fungus), and Gomphus floccosus (Wooly Chanterelle). Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca is a less fleshy, buff to orangish, probably edible species that grows on rotting wood or wood chips; an important field character is its dichotomously branched, brightly colored, true gills. Omphalotus olivascens, a toxic species, usually has an eccentric stipe, a yellowish-olive color, true gills, and grows either on rotting wood or at the base of hardwoods. Gomphus floccosus is a chanterelle relative which can cause stomach upsets. It also has a vase-like shape, but can be distinguished by a cap which has a hollow center surrounded by orange scales. Also in the S. F. Bay Area is Cantharellus subalbidus, an excellent edible species that differs from C. cibarius in being pallid to almost white in color and having white spores.

Yup suspected that may have been the case...as I have not seen chanarelles grow like that, and they did not look as delicate as chantarelles...but that was all I had to go on...as I always say...ID positive equals a longer life...errr well that was actually the first time I said it that way..but yall know what I mean.

Cheers and play safe...thanks Maia

Yeah I was about to say that Mr. Mushies...I think they are synonamous with clitocybe nuda...if I remember correctly the common name is Blewit...and there are several different purple to bluish edible mushies that make up this group...they are very tasty. I found about 20 lbs last year...only ours were more purple like.

Cheers and nice pics

Thanks for the info. I appreciate the help. I never thought I'd find this much help on mushies. This is a great site and has all the information needed to do what you want to do with your mushie friends.
I truly love the humor here. It's better then any forum I've come across OG and CW included.
I'll stop posting so much when my books come in. What is a good book for IDing in the texas area(or any) or is there not that much difference from one area to another.
Mr_Mushrooms I still have my eyes open. Thanks

"They are not exactly synonymous with Clitocybe nuda, the blewit, the Lactarius come from the family Russulaceae and the Clitocybe come from the family Tricholomataceae. Lactarius have warty or ridged amyloid spores and Clitocybe have smooth or slightly roughened spores. Amyloid means they stain when Melzer's reagent is applied."

Sorry just what a mycologist told me..man you gotta watch them sneaky mycologists...so much misinformation...hehe. He probably was tired and mistakenly told me this...if I was thinkin at the time I would have come to this conclusion myself, as I have picked lactarius before...and they did not have the same firm consistancy of the clitocybe...the day you stop learning is the day you die.

Cheers

I only tried lacts once. It was lactarius delicious..I believe, kinda stained a flourescent greenish...and it was orange. personaly I liked the nuda better. But oysters are tops in my books...mmmmmmm good.

I guess you could consider Lactarius and Clitocybe to be in the same group if the group is the Basidiomycetes. That's sort of a stretch.

I've only tried Lactarius deliciosus a few times. They have a nasty, gritty texture that I don't find at all pleasant. The flavor is pretty good, though. The only way I've had them that was OK was when we baked them with trout. For most mushrooms that would be gross overcooking, but for Lactarius it removed the grittiness.

Happy mushrooming!

Cantharelles don't have real gills like the mushroom on the picture. It's hard to tell exactly what it is.

The greenish one resembles very mush Clitocybe odora. If I'm correct it should have a strong aniseed smell.

Try to grill them next time. I prefer them that way.

Yep it could be, i also though about Clitocybe nebularis being a possibility here, any ideas ?
