Can you ID this mushroom?


I’d go with Hericium coralloides, edible and choice when fresh, with no poisonous lookalikes in BC. They prefer deciduous trees in my area Acer macrophyllum (Bigleaf maple) and Quercus garryana (Garry Oak). It’s a very fine day when you find Hercium on Salt Spring as the out of control deer population usually gets them first. It’s also got some pretty cool potential medicinal and preventative disease properties.
