Okay, so, I’ve stumbled upon some of what I’m fairly certain is chicken of the woods for a second time now, and this time much closer to home. Before I go foraging for supper, I would love to hear some positive ID’s from some other mycophiles, if anyone is willing to offer.
The concentric circles on the pileus lead me to believe this specimen is of the same species as this. These two pictures are from the only times I have seen them and I have yet to find any clues on their identity.
Can any of my fellow mycophiles help i.d. this? This was taken in the Florida Keys, about 12 feet from the ocean. I found mushrooms decomposing the washed ashore sea grasses. The universal veil makes me think Amanita, but I’ve never seen mushrooms living on such a salty substrate- didn’t even know it was possible.
