Exceptionally wet late summer will equal record fall shroom yields in the woods. After night temps drop below 60f get out there and enjoy super healthy free food. Happy hunting!

Hi, Ragnar....it has been a great summer for chanterelles here....if I had just seen your picture , mature chanterelles would have been my guess for what kind of fungi
Lobster mushrooms sound really interesting....a parisite I see.....http://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/aug2001.html

Lobsters are unmistakable, no gills or pores under cap but tiny 2-5 mm icicle like thingies. Sorry I've forgotten the proper morphology.

A great ID guide among many is mdc.

mo.gov/fieldguide/mushrooms.
Applicable to the entire Midwest and eastern hardwood us.

ragnar, in Wyoming I have an explosion of shrooms, all shapes, sizes, and colors ! They must really love the wet weather we have had?
I really need to take some time and get possitive ID's on them, I am sure that I am missing out on some good eating!
I posted some pictures in my project thread, that show only a few of the different types, I need to get some more pictures!
