Other Mushrooms: White chanterelles, kings, chicken of the woods, hedgehogs
General Information: Found over the past two weekends in the same general area. More chanterelles than I could use: close to 10 pounds each outing with many left in the ground. Could have used more hedgehogs, as I only found two little ones. Several pounds of kings, including several bigger than any shown in Washington pictures this fall. Surprisingly few maggots given their size and age. Plenty of rain lately keeping the flushes going. Main concern is overly cold temps now. What do folks here think of the toxicity of chickens found on conifers? I've been afraid to eat those.

General Information: I am finding lots of these. White/beige caps, white gills that do not run down the stalk. No veil. Stalk 1 in. thick. They grow at the base of rotting wood and are semi-submerged in debris. They are not matsutake as they have no veil on the stalk. Not giant Sawtooth - those typically row on pines and these are where you find firs. They are a very thick, strong, heavy mushroom. They are almost like bagels. Any ideas? Thanks!

General Location: Grassy area under pines and hickory
International/State: Kentucky
Other Mushrooms: Unknown Suillus
General Information: REPOST DUE TO PIC ERROR Hi Chris, I am sure this should be a very easy ID but for some reason I have difficulty with Boletus/Suillus. This Suillus (I believe) has no ring or veil evident. Very slimy. Fingers were stained brown shortly after collecting. What is throwing me is its mixed characteristics. Could not get a spore print as I collected them while very wet. Flesh did not not stain but has no ring. Also there are a few with red streaks on the canary yellow cap. Even if this in not a choice edible is it suitable for pickling? They are so abundant right now and I hate to waste the opportunity. Also I have been wanting to pickle some mushrooms but it is a waste of better edibles so this may be a good candidate. Would I need to remove the caps skin first as it is rather slimy? I guess that is several questions but at the very least would you please help me ID. Thanks! By the way I became a member today and encourage others to do the same. You won't find another site that compares!
