About The Author
I became more interested in mushrooms when I found morels growing in the backyard of my new house. After joining the club I have been sucked into the world of mycology. Since then I have combined my passions of science and mycology and started a DNA barcoding initiative.

It’s a good thing that the mushroom in my photo of a Destroying Angel on a Triscuit didn’t get eaten after I took the photo and turned my back on it for a minute or two……
Now that would have been an interesting story.
I’ve added credit for the use of the photo, thanks.
finding a buch of mushrooms, some I know are edible, but having trouble identifying others
If in doubt throw it out! It is not worth the risk eating something you are not 100% certain about.
The statement about finding them in summer and fall is misleading if read in other parts of the country. You could add “in the north/eastern USA” or give temps they grow, but this may be seen anywhere in the world for that matter. Please make a correction. Slide 7 talking about Amanitas.
Changes made to slide 7 as requested for non PA readers.
That Photo looks like a false morel? would that be correct?
Thank you in advance.
Yes the screenshot taken from the talk is of a Gyromitra esculenta or False Morel.
Anybody have much experience with Trichalomos in our area? I have a lot of them. I believe they may be Tricholoma scalpturatum or Tricholoma argyraceum. I have been told that they are not poisonousand some are good but some will give you a belly ache. Would appreciate any help. I have lots of photos. Still haven’t a final ID.
Thanks in advance for anybody jumping i here!
I don’t know of any Tricholoma experts in our area. John Plischke III may be able to help, you can find his contact details on the Club Officers page. You can also share images in our yahoo page or probably better one of the facebook pages. We have a few Tricholomas on our life list but as far as I am aware Tricholoma scalpturatum or Tricholoma argyraceum are both European species and not found here in the US.
Some Trichalomos are considered edible, some are listed as inedible. You would really need to know what you have before eating them. . . .
