I found a couple of mushrooms in my woods this week and was wondering what they are and if they are edible. The first picture of three still have some of the wood attached.
The next two pictures are the same fungi from top and bottom. This one was growing right up out of the soil. It still had dirt all over the top of it.
The last picture was one that was so cool looking , sitting there all by itself on top of a log.

Hi Miles, the ones on the first picture look like Armillaria solidipes / ostoyae (honey fungus), but I would need to see them also from the top to be sure. With the other two I'm not familiar.
Armillarias are edible, but have to be boiled in water shortly, before they can be fried or pickled in vinegar. Although the taste is not first class, they can be great because of the large amounts of mushrooms one can find in a small area on neighboring trees and stumps.

I'm going to hazard a guess that the second one is some type of Russula, perhaps Russula brevipes, which is described in my guide as "disagreeable tasting". I pretty much ignore all Russulas in this area because the vast majority of them are Russula emetica, and there is no reason why I would want to call Ralph on the big phone.

Uwe, thanks, I will see if I also have a picture from the top. I took a couple but they may have been to blurry to see.

Thanks John, Good to know. It was really something to see how it had pushed up through the soil.
