Yes, they are some cooked specimen in the middle of the picture. We tried them after Sam Ristich told us they were probably most definitely not poisonous. I tried them so you don’t have to! Turns out this was a case of a Hypomyces parasitizing a mouth burning Lactarius.

What is that in the center of the first photo?
