While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    I went on a walk in suburban New Jersey this past weekend, and noticed some mushrooms on the ground. Can someone identify for me please? Thanks. 20170909_153332_001.jpg 20170909_153319.jpg

    Looks like ringless honey mushroom to me, but I would like to see what some experience did honey mushroom foragers have to say (I've never hunted honey mushrooms).

    No one should be eating any mushrooms based upon an identification by others on the web.

    People need to do their own investigation and identification before they put something that could be toxic in their bodies.

    The soap box is now free for anyone who would like to use it.

    Agree on the ringless honey mushrooms.. but would need multiple photos for id. including top, bottom, stalk, substrate they are growing on, spore print...

    those however may be getting late for harvest.

    ok, I will do some reading into the mushrooms before I go there next time, and if they are there or if some new species are there, I will document properly and either update this thread or make a new one.
