Pheasants back (Polyporus squamosas) are easy to identify. Raw they taste like cucumbers, cooked they taste like pants. They are tough.
They fruit primarily on dead wood, but occasionally on living trees. No polypores are known to be poison or sickeners.
I dont waste any time on Pheasants backs.
Fruiting now and fair to eat are Fawn mushrooms (Pluteus cervinus), and a few edible agaricus species..Agaricus bitorquis, A. brunescens and allies should be appearing with all the rain we have had.
You never see a fishing boat parked in front of a psychiatrists office .....
