Re: mushrooms

very cool. I don't have any experience with that species. Do you have a scientific name for it?

Re: mushrooms

Are those good? I've never seen them in the wild. What do they grow by? I've been out looking fo chantrelles but only found 1 and it was too old. I only looked once but I gotta keep trying.

I can't find any mushroom with those names that looks like that on the internet. Is this what the locals call them? How did you first know they were OK to eat? Did your father, grandfather etc show you first? I pick several mushrooms that I learned were good to eat when I was a kid from my Uncle and grandfather. I just called them by their nickname. Now that I use books to identify them, every mushroom I was shown is considered a "choice" mushroom. It looks like these are some kind of "Milky" mushroom. Maybe that is where "Milk Plate" came from.

Re: mushrooms


Can't be sure, but look like some type of bolete. Do they have "gills" or "pores" ? If they have pores they are probably a type of bolete.

Re: mushrooms

I'm not familiar with these mushrooms either. Boletes have more of a rounded top, morelike umbrella shaped, and don't have that dimple in the middle. But than again there are many types of the bolete and I could be wrong.

Re: mushrooms

Beefsteak is what everyone around here calls them and they do have gills and they are milky.Dad showed me when I was a kid. I found them in franklin, adams, and cumberland counties and aug. is the best time to find them.

Re: mushrooms

They look like they may be Orange-brown lactarius (Lactarius volemus)
