PUFFBALLS (LYCOPERDON spp. and CALVATIA spp.)Each puffball should be sliced from topto bottom and the interior examined. It should be completely white and featureless inside, like a slice of white bread. There should be no trace of yellow or brown
SHAGGY MANE (Coprinus comatus)looks like a wig laers wig also called Shaggy manes are best when picked before the caps begin to turn black
CORAL FUNGI (Clavariaceae)They do look much like coral. Most are tan, whitish or
yellowish; a few are pinkish or purple.
MORELS (Morchella esculenta)
Sponge, pinecone and honeycomb mushroom. Morels are quite distinctive, but there is a small chance they could be confused with false morels. Half-free morels may be confused with a mushroom called the wrinkled thimble cap (Verpa bohemica)
Bearded Tooth - (Hericium erinaceus) clumps of hanging white "fur," this tooth fungus looks much like a polar bear's paw
Oyster Mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus)This large white, tan or ivory-colored mushroom isnamed for its oyster shell-like shape. It has white gills running
Chanterelles (Cantharellaceae)These mushrooms are funnel-or trumpet-shaped and have wavy cap edges. Most are bright orange or yellow, although one, the black trumpet, is brownish-black.
Boletes (Boletaceae) If you can picture a hamburger bun on a thick stalk, you will have a good idea of what most boletes look like.no gills underneath.A few boletes are poisonous. To avoid these, don't eat any boletes that have orange or red pores.
Sulfur Shelf (Laetiporus sulphureus) These mushrooms light up the forest with their brilliant orange-red caps and pale sulfur-yellow pore surfaces. Some specimens fade to a peach or salmon color.The sulfur shelf always grows on wood, usually in large masses of overlapping caps. It has no stem; the cap is attached directly to the wood. The pores are tiny.Other names include chicken mushroom and chicken of the woods.with no poisonous look-alikes. It does cause a mild
allergic reaction (swollen lips) in some people.
Hen-of-the-Woods (Grifola frondosa)This mushroom really does look something like a large, ruffled chicken. It grows as a bouquet of grayish-brown, fan-shaped, overlapping caps, with offcenter white talks branching from a single thick base. On the underside, the pore surface is white.
Black Truffles or Black Perigord Truffles (Tuber melanosporum)The Black Truffle has a thick, smooth to wrinkled outer skin, somewhat rough in texture and is greyish-black in colour with small diamond-shaped projections.
Charcoal Burner (Russula cyanoxantha)distinguished from most other members of the Russula genus by the fact that its gills do not split, but are soft and flexible.are so brittle that they crumble when handled roughly. The spore colour varies from white to cream, or even orange.
