of L. raphanica being edible is 100%. The likelihood of the mushrooms pictured here being edible depend entirely on what species they are. I’m relatively certain they’re L. raphanica, but until you’ve confirmed that yourself, mushrooms and reference text(s) in hand, or provided us with incontrovertible proof (i.e. microscopy), it’s just an idea.

Great update on this Lentinula sp. What’s the likelihood that this is edible?
