Recognized by sight: The second image is acutally more telling for me. This is a great stage at which I harvest the outer edge of this mushroom for cooking. That being said, it could be other things.

You are 100% correct. And your caution was noted before. However if it does turn out to be I. resinosum, how is it as an edible?

I shouldnt have mentioned ediblity from a picture. Just stating that IF this is I resinosum, then this is only stage I eat it at. When people ask me if something is edible in the field, I ask them if they can tell me one or two things characteristically about why it would be an edible. When they cant come up with anything, they realize they should probably pass on it..When in doubt throw it out is about the most important and easiest thing you can learn from Aurora.

The site is awesome!

You guys are good and quick.

How is it prepared? How does it taste? Arora doesn’t go into much detail about that.

Thanks again.
