possible.This was my first time finding definite Hercicium out in the wild. It has a very pleasant smell to it, much better than cultivated erinaceus in my opinion. The conifer and long teeth are what lead me to americanum.
I’d call this H. americanum. Mushroom Expert says it’s rarely found on conifer wood. I suppose there’s a possibility that the conifer type is a very similar but different species.
