Every mushroom is edible once. ;)

Nice findJoe31,is dificult to say the species with only one photo,to id with more accurence mushrroms,you need to take photos of the gills also and more photos from diferent angels.I can tel that the cracks in the cup are due to lack of humidity,i have more than one spotting of diferent mushrroms species,that have the same kind of cracks
Next time you find mushrroms tried to take photos of every part of it,congrats on this unsual mushrroms cup pattern and thanks for sharing

Hello Joe31 and Welcome to the Project Noah community!
We hope you like the website as much as we do. There are many aspects to the site and community. The best way to get started is to read the FAQs at where you can find all the tips, advice and "rules" of Project Noah. You, like the rest of the community, will be able to suggest IDs for species that you know (but that have not been identified), and make useful or encouraging comments on other users' spottings (and they on yours).
There are also "missions" you can join and add spottings to. See . A mission you should join is the to chose the best wild photo of 2018,only the spottings added to that mission are eligible.Note that most missions are "local". Be sure not to add a spotting to a mission that was outside of mission boundaries or theme :) Each mission has a map you may consult showing its range. We also maintain a blog archive where we have posted previous articles from specialists from different geographical areas and categories of spottings, as well as wildlife "adventures".
So enjoy yourself, share, communicate, learn. See you around :)
