    Yep, definitely Armillaria ponderosa, or matsutake. Saw a couple others already gone to mush nearby that got me wondering, and found more old ones later after finding this one. 1400m elev, which is higher than I've ever found them in this valley. Couldn't find any #1 buttons, but this one will still be tasty fried in a bit of butter. Almost didn't fit in a large ziploc, still had half the day to complete my work but they are pretty robust for travel. No good at this stage for the mushroom buyer, but I never pick for sale anyways.

    Hey neckdeep, great to see you back! Nice haul, especially the kings. And interesting bit about the jacks and the restaurant porcinis.

    Jacks are so easy to find... haven't had much luck since the great lobstah bump in july.
    They got a name for the winners in the world

    I've found a million rusula brevipes, there are hillsides full of them in the lodgepole. Still waiting for that first lobster. Does anyone know if the hypomyces parasite is even present in the greater Yellowstone?

    My Sept long weekend lobster patches didn't show for the second year in a row. I've got a couple other spots that bump in early to mid Oct that I hope will show. But those later ones need to be harvested quick or the maggots and frost turn them soft. Surprisingly, we haven't had our first frost below 700m yet. Fingers crossed.

    When I looked at the wiki page for beta amanitin, the references msds link is a dead link. An active link seems to provide more details: https://datasheets.scbt.com/sc-202860.pdf

    The mycologist that I see in my area all seem to think that chew and spit is fine.

    i am not a fan of "parasol" Macrolepiota procera
    maybe fried in a pan the only way but.... or dried/grinded and mixed in butter as a spread

    and this is the most dangerous mushroom and a kind of a look alike. Amanita phalloides

    i remember when i was a kid we had a mushroom dinner in a our family holiday house in the forest.
    buhh my grandmother my aunty and 5 grandchildren all had to puke that night.

    i still remember the usual talk in the kitchen during mushroom season : )
    is this one???? i am not sure ??? lets wait for "hans" he knows more : )
    every hunt same story... usually it was fine only one time the stew was really bad!

    Haha! I love it. "Waiting for hans" has a nice ring to it. Could be a play?

    Good haul today on my bike ride with the doggie.
    Drying the lobsters, fried the bolete (for later use on burgers), Chantrelles going into spaghetti sauce and I'm going to do a weird pickle thing tomorrow with the cauliflower http://fat-of-the-land.blogspot.com/...-take-out.html Just finished putting up 18qts of lacto-fermented dills so I'm in a pickling kind of mindset these days.

    Hey thanks man! Get your ass up here, there's a jar with your name on em!
    It's the first time (in 2 attempts) the cukes worked for me. Last year I tried it in a big crock... fail for me. I've done kimchee (3 successes, 1 failure), sauerkraut (4 successes), and have a 4 qt jar of carrot/kohlrabi (from the garden) in the fridge downstairs that worked great so anyway, I'm stoked that the 20 pounds of cukes worked out!

    Look no further man. This recipe kicked ass.
    https://happyacres.blog/2015/07/09/f...rabi-two-ways/
    I added lots of fresh dill and garlic from the garden and also threw in a large dried Guajillo chili.
    I wish we would have planted more kohlrabi now.
    The lacto-pickled cukes in the fridge didn't get canned (I understand they're good for 6 months in the fridge, I canned about half after fermentation). The kohlrabi pickles won't last another 3 weeks.

    Happy to answer any questions you have mate, though I'm a bit of a hack (as my stats attest).

    My guess is pink coral which would put em in the do not eat category. BCmtnhound is the dude though.

    Ramaria formosa is my guess too. Some sort of Ramaria sp., but we don't have many of those in Utah so I would defer to BCMtnHound as well.

    My first book was Mushrooming Without Fear... someone borrowed it from me a long time ago and never returned it, but armed with the knowledge from that and the Audobon Society Guide... I felt a little better about poking around in the woods. I guess there's no substitute for having someone who knows more than you around though.

    I bet that paperback is in every library system.

    Thanks. I'm not looking to make mushrooming a huge new hobby but while deer hunting this weekend I was pretty surprised by the amount and variety of shrooms I saw and wished I knew a bit more about them.

    This has been our approach. Shrooming isn't a huge hobby of ours but it is a great way of learning more about the natural world as we hike, backpack, etc. The edible species are just a nice bonus.
