    Hi Allelopath!

    I bet that there are many people out there who know a lot more about fungi than I do - I'm amazed that you've made it three days without a reply to any of your fungi!

    It's been a while since I learned my fungus identification, but... two and three are "true mushrooms" in the family Basidiomycetes, and the last one looks very similar to the edibleBoletus edulis that can be found around here (northwest BC). :) Unfortunately, and to my chagrin when I'm out trying to identify fungi with nothing but a field guide, a lot of them seem to look alike!

    Hope that gives you a place to start, anyway!

    I think you're right that this one is a boletus...and edulis may correct as well, but it is difficult to tell. Googling on bolutus edulis returns numerous images of varying likeness.
