Back Yard Mushrooms
Shrewsbury MA

Has anyone used cooking as a way to identify mushrooms?  I like to eat Bicolor Bolete and the look alikes.  Here is what the Bicolor and something else look like after boiling in water for about 15 minutes.  Bicolor on the left. 

There were several interesting mushrooms growing among moss under an oak.  The first was a Beefstake Polypore, about 4" wide.


The second was this dark caped bolete.
