Both photos are of the same fungi found in a glass bottle of balsamic vinegar that was left for 10 days. There are two mushroom heads (2 inch diameter) in the bottle, no stalks or gills. The texture of the fungi is like raw meat- fleshy, and the thin top layer looks like leather with fine creases and an even finer frill around the edge.


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
