I was told at one time that a rule of thumb was if it grows on wood it is safe to eat. Is that true?

duckslayer56, thanks for starting this thread. I can't wait to get going with it.
Good luck with your searching! Really old oak trees, dead oaks and stumps are great places to look. These mushrooms are how nature decomposes old trees, so those are the best places to look. I've found most of them around trees with exposed roots.

Hey guys, I need your help identifying a mushroom. Down in Prince Frederick today, my toddler nephew decided to try chomping down one of these. Any clue what it is?

LMAO!

Great thread. I picked about 15 lbs of Chantrelles in the woods by my deer camp a few years back. They were everywhere! Delicious!

Havent seen any since. I made sure to only take a few from each patch.

The picture is hard to be sure but from the white gills and the bulbous base, I'd say its in the Amanita family. Not to freak you out but the vast majority of Amanita genus mushrooms are highly toxic, very common and these are the ones you never want to touch.

Thanks. That's what I was kindve thinking. His dad saw him chewing on the stem, but we didn't see the cap anywhere. I'll pass on to keep an eye on him. Luckily so far he hasn't really shown any signs of being sick.

I'm far from an expert, but I agree that it looks like it could be Amanita. From what I've read, it can take up to 24 hours before symptoms appear.

Here's an over-the-top article about them: http://www.slate.com/articles/health...e_treated.html
