Mushrooms this Week
I thought the mushrooms in the next two pictures would be fairly easy to identify. Orange caps, yellow gills, dark brown stalks, white spore print and growth on wood. But I couldn't quite find a match. Except for Flammulina velutipes, the Velvet Foot or Winter Mushroom. On paper it's a decent match, but they just don't look right for F. velutipes, and it's the wrong time of the year.
