This is my first post at the shroomery! I was waiting to get my camera before i posted. I got a olympus c-3000 and took a stroll through the woods. I didn?t find much, as it hasnt rained in a couple weeks, but here is the best one i saw.



Sorry for the lack of info, im a newb. Its not active but I was just wondering what it was so i can start to id them myself. No biggie.

Those look like Polyporus squamosus, Dryad's Saddle.

If the flesh is white (possibly marbled with brown), fresh (like an edible mushroom), and its not infested with bugs then it's edible. Not a great edible, but that's a matter of opinion anyway.

Your photo is good, but for ID purposes we need to see the top and underside a bit more directly. There is enough in the photo for me to be pretty sure.

Happy mushrooming!

Hey thanks for the feedback. I know i should have taken more pictures but that was the last one my memory card would fit. Its supposed to rain tommorow and the next day and im going to go back out and make a sort of nature hike out of it. I'll post any thing i can find. Can anyone narrow down a list of mushrooms that may grow in the MidWest, around missouri. I dont live near a cow pasture so manure shrooms are a no go. Thanks again!

I've never been to Missouri, and never heard of any Cubes growing there. But hey you could be like Mr. G and find a "new" strain, take a print, name it and develope a theory of how it got to Missouri. Cool, huh?
