I considered buying a microscope but the cost is too high given how rarely I would use it.

And I’m not sure what the wood chips are.

any idea what kind of wood the chips are of?

I think this could be Pluteus magnus growing in a cluster like this…did you check the cystidia

This patch was still there today. The gills were turning pink and the caps had grown. I tasted them raw and they were bland with no trace of radish flavor. I decided to sauté a piece anyway, using olive oil over medium low heat until browned. The cooking brought out the raphanoid flavor and made them worth eating.

As you can see in the picture of the damaged cap I collected, these have already been grazed on by an animal. I doubt there will be much remaining by the time I get back to them.

You should eat a few, I think they make good edibles.
