    Cool pics! WE sure don't get anything like that in the southwest.

    There are mushrooms everywhere in Maine. The place is a virtual rain forest and fungus has a field day. These examples really caught my eye though. Those tendril things are my favorite.

    Phillip- I bought a laminated fold out mushroom card for identifying such cool looking shrooms. It doesn't have all the shrooms, but has most of the more common ones

    your photos

    1-Chanterella

    2-Spindle Coral

    3- Fading Scarlet Waxy (Ithink)

    4- I don't know

    Anyway, I bought this pocket guide and will be carrying it with me this fall so I can ID shrooms

    it's called Mushrooms, an introduction to familiar North American species, by Waterford Press. It's about 4×9-inches and laminated folds out to about 22×9-inches. $5.95

    Awesome JJ- I'll update the photo captions. Thank you so much!

    You made me remember about folding card on my desk (under a pile). Doh! I have the Pocket Naturalist Guide – Mushrooms: An Introduction to Familiar North American Species<img src="http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=&l=as2&o=1&a=1583551824&camp=217145&creative=399369&quot; width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" /> which has everything you've listed except what the 4th one.

    Cool looking mushrooms indeed! Will keep my eyes open when I do one of those Sedona trails. Might find some cool-looking fungus as well. LOL.
