FFTD Bonus Mushroom 1 6-19-14

Old German saying: "All mushrooms are edible - some just once."


It has been raining so much that we have mushrooms growing in the forest. My favorite botanist says not to eat this one which she thinks could be a waxy cap (Hydrophorus). 
It could also be a Frost's Bolete.


Mushroom identification is complex  and requires a look under the cap, a check of the stem and examination of where it is growing. Under the cap there can be  gills, tubes, teeth, veins and more.
