"Could" be a ragveil or coker's Amanita.

Morchella elata  (Black Morels)

Gathered in Sierra Nevadas in a burned area. These were probably the best tasting morels I've ever had. The smell was unbelievable.

Gyromitra esculenta (False Morel)

Potentially deadly for some while others feel no effects. It is considered one of the few dangerous morel look alikes.  Up close it looks nothing like a morel and is easy to differentiate by cutting the mushroom lengthwise. (Morels are always hollow from tip to stipe, false morels are not).

I believe this is Stereum Ostrea. It's one of my favorite finds. Very beautiful.

You have failed me for the last time Photobucket. Anyone have any suggestions for hosting pictures?

It looks to be in the genus Coprinus. Possibly Coprinus Alopecia. Other possibilities include Xerophilus or Calyptratus.

I believe this is a type of Reishi mushroom. It was pretty far gone when I found it but it's a dead ringer for other old Reishis. Reishis are one of the most well known and most studied of the medicinal mushrooms.

It's been raining pretty steady here in Houston for several days. Most of the following mushrooms I dont have id's for yet. I may never get them as I dont have a specimen to look at.

...

These were quite small but I love this picture. It has mushrooms in every stage of growth from pinning to maturity.

...

...

I originally thought this was some sort of cespitose Entolomas (many mushrooms growing from one center section). But Entolomas drop pink spores. These are at full maturity and no sign of pink on the gills.

...

Next stop, looking into the "Waxy caps". I'm sure a more experienced mushroom hunter could identify these on sight. I am stumped for now. I'll edit later if I find a good fit.

...

Plant Pot Dapperlings.  These are beautiful and strange mushrooms. 

...

...

...

...

This is my first time finding these.  These pictures show them in different stages of growth.

...

This young mushroom was mostly hidden in the grass. I will come back to it in a few days and see if I can get an id.

...

It was hiding a secret though. You can see pink gills. This mushroom is probably too young to drop spores so this isn't due to the spores. My first guess is Agaricus. Agaricus are the most well known of mushrooms. The button mushrooms you buy at the store are Agaricus.

...

...

Earth Stars- These are also strange by normal mushroom standards. You can see their life cycle here.

excellent fungal pictures - can i make a suggestion. Find something of a known size and always carry it with you to include in any mushroom pictures so that we you can always tell the scale and size of the mushrooms.

It's one of the things that drives me to shouting at the television on occasion. When you watch nature programs about small animals or plants and at no point does the narrator give you a size or the cameraman include anything in the shot to give some kind of scale.

Those little/big yellow greeny ones are pretty unusuals. 

The ones by the cow pat - don't eat those Smiley
Liberty caps. named after the french helmets they wore during the revolution.
Popular with hippies - hallucinogenic.
Be aware the toxin stays in the system for an extended period of time, leading to random flashes of hallucinations, often weeks after ingesting the mushroom. Very bloody dangerous.

In fact fungal toxins in general are difficult for our cleansing organs - liver & kidneys - to remove from our blood system.
It's why they are so lethal. Even a small amount of toxin from  a death cap or destroying angel will kill you as it just goes round and round in your blood stream gradually destroying your liver.
Usually by the time symptons show - you need an emergency liver transplant or you are dead.
