Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Gardner do you know if is edible ?It looks like it would be .
I'm a student so be gentle.
Haven't a clue but I'd seriously advise against eating any fungi without being 100% sure of its identity.
Came across a good comment on another forum:
'If you're thinking of eating a species that hasn't been reliably identified take three specimens. One for yourself, one for the doctor and one for the autopsy.'
This has the general appearance of honeyfungus. Although I can't see from your photo if the stem has a ring (as would be the case with honey fungus). Some species of honey fungus are considered edible, although it is advised only to eat a little at first as it can cause stomach upsets in some people.
