winter wild mushrooms

This section of the site is intended to help the fellow mushroom lover find wild mushrooms throughout the year. This  page focuses on Winter. If you happen to find something interesting in summer that is not covered here - take a photo of it and send me an email with some commentary,(if you don't have a photo don't worry - still email me with your story and I will find a suitable image of the type of wild mushroom you have found) I will then publish your mushroom news so  that it can benefit others in the future. Simply submit your finds directly to this page.

This image will help with some species

Hi I think it is the rufous milk cap but please get a book and check as they give help on identification by smell and staining (when you cut them or bruise them ) if it is it is edible but it's very peppery and is best mixed with pickle milk cap and woolly milk cap and we boil it and rinse it before we use it

Hi, In winter I collect

Auricularia auricula-judae (Dead Man's Ear) from Elder trees.
Pleurotus ostreatus (oyster mushroom) these are usually on dead ash trees.
And Flammulina velutipesi (Velvet shanks).

I get the occasional wood blewit too.

Sorry got no pics.

Hello, I was walking in a country park in Kent, England today and I stumbled across these small mushrooms. A few varieties actually, but I can figure out what these ones are... They has a long stem, brown towards the bottom and fading white at the top of the stem. The caps of the mushrooms vary in size from 2 cm to 7cm I think from the hand full I collected. Here is a photo -

Wild Mushroom Identification - Recommended Books for All Skill Levels:
Every amateur mycologist should have a decent library of books, here are the top five books I highly recommend for wild mushroom identification:
1) Field Guide to Edible Mushrooms of Britain and Europe (Field Guides)  - Great layout with superb images - Peter Jordan
3) Mushrooms: A comprehensive guide to mushroom identification  - This one is a proper belter with loads and loads of good technical data - Roger Phillips
4) Complete Mushroom Book: The Quiet Hunt   - A lovely book by a lovely man. Antonio Carluccio
5) Mushrooms: River Cottage Handbook No.1 - Always a favourite from Hugh's fungi specialist friend, John Wright

It is important to have at least 3 books so you can cross reference and cover as many species as possible
