    It's growing at my parent's cottage, and I can't figure out what it is!

    I think Lloyd has it! I feel like the tops of mine are finer, but other wise, looks good. I still won't risk eating it though!

    I cooked one I found nearby. Of course, caution is always advisable with funghi.

    It looked pretty fresh, must of just fallen from the tree. I gathered the cleanest and untouched parts. Lightly sauteed in olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Tasted fresh and woodsy, nice but not amazing.

    Possibly a pleated inkcap mushroom? Ive found these before aswell. They dont grow in the ground, only on sticks and stuff it seems.
