I have these mushrooms growing in my backyard. Anyone help identify them? Are they safe to digest?

wow that sure helped to pinpoint it down to only a few million species.
>>
At least give me a genus?
>>
>>2000722
you didn't even bother to provide a location.

there's mushroom identification tools for pretty much any country.
>>
>>2000693
best way to identify them is to eat them.

post results.
>>
>>2000730
A botanist would be able to tell us the location based on the plants in the pic.

Too bad we don't have a botanist around.
>>
>>2002291
that would work with anything besides grass.
>>
>>2002301
>only sees grass in that picture
>doesn't notice the two other plants

Pull it up by base. Show full underside including stem and stem base. It could be a Pleurotus species, but I cannot tell if that has a stem or not.
>>
>>2002301
I'll give you a hint.
there's wild strawberry and pin oak in the picture.

the mushroom appears to be an oyster.

I'm not a botanist, and neither are you.
>>
>>2002392

Can't be strawberry - the leaves are too round.
Right on the pin oak, though.
I'd put my money on the eastern US.

Looks like ground ivy to me. I have it in Maryland. Smells terrible, spreads everywhere, and bees love it.
>>
>>2002392
looks more like a potentilla or something.

this isn't a TV-quiz, if you don't provide the information I'm not going to look for it in order to find out.
>>
This really won't add anything of value to the thread, so I'm sorry OP, but this is ridiculous.

There is Poa pratensis, Quercus palustris, Acer rubrum and Waldsteinia fragarioides in this picture. Not strawberry, not G. hederacea, not potentilla. But kudos to the people who said strawberry and ground ivy, because it's way closer than any species of Potentilla.

>>2002392
I get the point you're making, that bugguy sucks at plant ID, but a botanist would likely not be able to help on this ID... A mycologist would be able to. Fungi tend to fall outside the realm of what most botanists study (in detail, at least.)

That being said, a picture of the entire stem, and close up of gills, as well as location would be helpful to those that are trying to narrow it down.
>>

>I get the point you're making, that bugguy sucks at plant ID, but a botanist would likely not be able to help on this ID
no, my point is that a botanist would know the general location by the plants in the pic.

and bugguy clearly isn't a botanist, something he demonstrates daily.
>>
>>2003599
Actually, it's a rather broad geographical range, especially considering the fact that all of the plant species I listed above are widely available for sale in the horticultural trade. That being said, I would put the location to be somewhere in south central Canada (likely southern Ontario,) or the northern-most central states (i.e. New York state). Though it's equally possible they are located at a similar latitude somewhere in Europe.
>>
>>2003599
And at least we both can agree that he is not a botanist...
>>
What's the location? These plants can even be found in Australia. Unless this is bait, of which at this point is very likely.
>>
>>2003605
>he imagines identifying plants is all a botanist does
nice projecting.

I got better things to do than identify plants for strangers, hence why I need a location or I won't even bother.
>>
>>2003859
By "identify plants," you mean "google image search until you find a plant that sort of looks like the posted picture, but in reality is the completely wrong family."
>>
>>2004081
if you think there's more to identifying plants than flipping through some pages or using google you're delusional.

maybe you should get an actual degree yourself and stop frontin' on mine ;')

If this is what you think trained botanists do, or the only way they learn their skills, then I have some bad news for you... Though I can tell you do think this way, because that's how you try to identify most pictures. Like I suggested in a previous thread, become familiar with the morphological characteristics of common families, especially large ones like Rosaceae, so you aren't just googling wildly, and will have a clear idea of whether your ID is even remotely correct. It's evident you don't closely check the characteristics of most plant structures in detail, for instance, confusing W. fragarioides with a Potentilla sp. Or did you just suggest that ID to be contrary to the people who said it was a species of Fragaria? (Blah, blah, blah, you had the correct family, but only by luck because Rosaceae is so huge...) If you can be a little humble, you could actually learn something in these threads.

Also, I have several degrees, and although I can appreciate that you have one as well, it is clearly not related to the study, or science, of botany. ;-)

interesting development

After reading this post, I actually had to doublecheck whether this was the real bugguy, or his double.

What does that smiley even mean?

Do not trust this guy. I'm not a mycologist, and those aren't chanterelles.

My dad likes to look for mushrooms innawoods occasionaly and he has always told me, Little brown mushrooms, don't bother. White mushrooms with white gills don't bother. Both groups have a lot of mushrooms that look similar and can be difficult to identify correctly.
