Recent Mushrooms - late May 2013

Dryad's Saddle - Polyporus squamosus

Yellow Morel - Morchella sp.

Most likely M. esculentoides.

Oyster Mushroom - Pleurotus ostreatus

Mica Cap - Coprinellus micaceus

These first three pictures show Mica Caps as it matures.  The last picture below shows a slightly closer view of the fine, mica-like granules that can often be seen on the surface of this mushroom.

Agaricus sp.

Based on its growth in the grass along a sidewalk, and its almost underground growth, these mushrooms are probably Spring Agarics, A. bitorquis.

Orange Mock Oyster - Phyllotopsis nidulans ?

I'm not positive about this one, it looks like P. nidulans, but guides list it as growing in the fall.

Coprinoid Mushroom

Unknown mushroom

Possibly a species of Panaeolus or Psathyrella, possibly not.  I didn't note any details.
