While hiking this weekend in central Kentucky, I spied a large orange patch of mushrooms from the trail.  I don't think I've ever seen them down there before.  

I did a bit of research and I think they're Jack O Lantern mushrooms.  Probably not the best pictures for identification purposes, but let me know what you think.  If they are Jack O Lanterns, probably a good thing I left them behind.

There are fairly easy identification methods to separate Jack O Lantern mushrooms from chanterelles. The Jack O Lantern mushrooms tend to grow in clumps and the chanterelles tend to be more singular. The chanterelles have distinctive false gills that diverge, I think they are white on the inside (need to verify that), and when the cap is pulled apart, the stem splits like string cheese.

Jack-O-Lantern mushrooms--TOXIC--have gills underneath. Chanterelles--DELICIOUS--have ridges.

Those look like Jack-O-Lanterns to me.

Chanterelles are usually fall mushrooms around here. Not sure for your area.

If you're interested in identifying, picking and/or eating wild 'shrooms, the best thing to do is join a local mycological society. They'll have tours and classes and love to have new members.

Haha!  Right!  I know nothing about mycology so I thought it best if I asked.  I was pretty sure that those were not going to treat me right if I consumed them.  

Thanks for the confirmation!

If you buy those white mushrooms at the grocery store check and see what they grow on, then you'll appreciate the fungi on the dead log.😳

You can have any fungi (natural or store-bought) that may for some reason have my name on it

Some of the best eating and easiest to identify 'shrooms grow from dead wood, standing or down. See post above re: store-bought buttons.

Now, a fungi growing from a dead dog... that I'd have to pass on!

We call those Sulfur Shelves--Poluporus sulphereus. What we call Chicken of the Woods is a related but very different 'shroom, Griffola frondosa. That's why most mycolologically minded folks use latin names--they're the same everywhere (in theory).

The way I've eaten the ones you show, I'd cut the fresh-growing rims off--about 1-2"--and take those, leaving the rest to continue growing. The flavor seems to vary depending on the wood they're growing on. I've had some that were excellent, and some that tasted of sewage.

I was thinking about reaching out to the local society!

Never met my grandfather but he was a mushroom picker. I like the story about when he just started and picked a basket of Amanita ocreata,. The good news was his friends knew what they were!

My buddys grandmother was from Czechoslovakia and she would take a silver spoon and put unknown mushroom with it in a jar and seal it, if it tarnished the spoon they were poison..according to her, i think, in broken English...well needless to say my grandmother forbid me to go in her house but dad would say you can go but dont eat anything....disclaimer: please don't try this at home folks......lol

Good thing he didn't eat those! There's a reason those are called Destroying Angels.

No, there is no test to determine if a mushroom is toxic, other than eating it and seeing if you survive. The only way to know is knowledge. Learn before you pick!

Way back eons ago when the first person ate one he must have really been starving. Second guy saw the first guy and said why not and then drops over dead. First guy scratches head in wonderment.

We owe a lot to those early pioneers! Not just mushrooms, either. What about some vegetables and fruits that are toxic unless cooked? Who the hell figured THAT out?

"Billy ate some of that yesterday. He died screaming with green foam coming out of his mouth."

"Well, I figure I'll just try cooking it then...."

Chanterelles are pretty easy to figure out once you have seen and picked some.  They are distinctive and hard to mess up.  We go on a 2 to 4 day mushroom trip every August and usually end up with about 50 to 75 lbs of chanterelles.   Also some red top boletes and my personal favorite (simply because of how weird they are), Indigo Lactarius (sp?).  They are a dull blue but bleed a dark inky color when cut.  Very edible  and pretty good flavor but sure looks weird frying up blue mushrooms with your steak!
