Need help on identifying these
July 29, 2011 04:16PM
I've just joined this forum and need some help on identifying these mushrooms. I live at 9,000 feet on a south-facing slope, mixed Ponderosa, Doug fir, Blue Spruce and aspens in the foothills west of Golden and have been finding these mushrooms around the property. I know my boletes but anything else other that oyster mushrooms I'm too scared to eat because I can't identify them.

Be patient, it takes some time and study to learn lots of mushrooms. Here are a few thoughts I had on your photos.

1. Leccinum insigne (Aspen Orange Cap)

2a. Looked kinda like Amanita pantherina but maybe not.

3a. Definatly NOT Laccaria laccata
