This specimen occurred on an island in the Mississippi River in SE Iowa. It was growing on a piece of rotting hardwood driftwood (species ID not available) in a mixed deciduous oak/beech heavy forest within proximity of a moderately used walking trail.
The smell was pleasant and strong, appealing. The mushrooms were silky and kind of “buttery”, with solid, firm flesh in both the cap and stipe. The color was buff yellow and there were fine hairs on the stipe. Both the cap and stipe bruised orangish-brown upon handling/injury. The pictures here are of young G. luteus, and older (more identifiable) specimens have been seen in proximity of this location at other times, although no pictures or specimens were gathered.

Not sure exactly what you wonder in regards to being serious? The date I found these? Or my ID?
Either way, the date is true for collection and these photos…and I had some concurrence on the ID.
Not sure if you’re being serious, but these would’ve matured, decayed, and been long gone by October
Would you think they are ready now???
