    Here are some mushroom/lichen pics I've taken over the last couple weeks.
    I hope you enjoy the pictures. If you've got any id's or anything interesting thing to say about any of them, I'd love to hear it. Are any rare or edible? Photography tips help too!

    Next-to-last is Coprinus comatus, Shaggy Mane. Supposedly an excellent edible mushroom when young...but later, not so much. It's called 'Inky Cap' for good reason!

    Last looks to be Cladonia pyxidata, Pixie Cup Lichen.

    Nice photos.

    Hmm...#13 might be Calocera viscosa, yellow jelly staghorn fungus.

    Thanks!

    I am now wondering if the 3rd to last is one of those shaggy mane's in the later stages you mentioned. Not a good photo, but I think I see some dripping 'ink' on it. And it was very close to where I found the other mushroom you id'd as Shaggy Mane.

    I'd say not, since shaggy manes have that distinctive long cap and mushrooms in preceding photo do not. There are other fungi that do the ink-dripping thing too.

    Fear not! I am certain that all your fungi will be IDed once our mavens get a look at 'em. These people are great. (Yo---MycoRob...Frog...Harri...allelopath! Front!)

    #13 (i think): If they were slimy, Calocera viscosa

    2. Xylaria sp.
    4. Helvella sp.
    5. Russula sp.
    8. The sulfur yellow suggests maybe Sulfur Tuft Hypholoma fasciculare but need more clues
    9. The top of the cap suggests the Winter Oyster Panellus serotinus, but I can't tell what I'm seeing underneath: Gills? Stem? What tree is this?
    12. Laccaria sp. I think
    14. Can't really tell but the stem makes it look like it could be an old beat up Hygrocybe conica

    cheers,

    Very nice, thanks for the id's! :)

    Frog, unfortunately I do not have the additional info you need for the other id's right now. Next time I'll take photos from more angles and note the stuff growing around it.

    Sounds good Nocturne,
    Also I should add, eg. re photo #1, knowing the characters of the underside of mushrooms is often key.
    Thanks for sharing the photos!
    cheers

    #3 looks like a species of Gymnopilus because of what appears to be bright orange spores
    #11 Clavulina cristata/coralloides
