Thank You. I probably mixed two species together when I chose them from the photos on my computer.

I agree with Dave. The two bottom photos appear to be Tylopilus felleus which has a reticulate stem and is common under conifers. The other photos are of a Leccinum.

were I picked these could be any of four different areas. I usually pick in mixed woods. Two of my spots contain a good percentage of Birch. In regards to the mushroom you spoke of all of these are the same species. I try to photograph only one species at a time. Hope this helps, because three years have dulled my memory of were they were picked.

The stipe on the inverted mushroom does not look like Leccinum.

Looks like pine needles covering the ground. Any birch?
