    Wild mushromm idnetification help

    I found these on the edge of a farm paddock under pines. Two types of mushroom. Anybody know if either variety is edible or should I chuck 'em?

    I have been wondering about the yellow top ones as well. See heaps of them in the Riverhead forest. I reckon they are edible as I have seen Eastern European folk picking the same mushrooms in the Woodhill forest.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    It's only if you see the EE's going back a second time that they could be classed as edible mushrooms.

    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    I personally wouldn't eat any mushroom under pines locally,your pic is a bit small and I don't feel qualified to comment other than if in doubt throw it out.
    There are many species of edible mushrooms besides your common field mushroom but many edible look remarkably similar to ones that could either kill you or leave you with a life long disability from just one bite.

    Google is your friend , If you can manage to watch this guy(I only skimd it) he seemed to know what he is on about.

    Dont get them mixed up with the gold top ones Rushy. We may not get any sense out of you for a week or so.

    Thanks for the heads up Shearer. Not that I talk much sense at the best of times anyway.
