Fungus photos from the park where I work, Houston, TX, USA.
As a naturalist, fungus/mushroom ID is a relatively new interest for me, so I’m still not 100 % certain of my IDs. You gotta go out there and try though. Let me know, if you know wild mushrooms well, and you think I’ve misidentified any of these…
Top 4 - Rusty-red Bolete (Boletus rubellus), associated with oaks, grows from the soil, edible.
Middle - Turkey-tail Shelf Fungus (Trametes versicolor), grows on dead wood (stumps and logs), not edible.
Bttm 4 - Tenacious Bolete (Boletus tenax), associated with oaks, grows from soil, edible.
* I would not base eating wild mushrooms on my observations, be very cautious about eating wild mushrooms (I never do).
