Strobilomyces strobilaceus
and Strobilomyces confusus
The Old Man of the Woods. The two species listed here are separated by
spore size and cap scale size (whatever!). If you are interested in
figuring them out, buy a microscope. I have one, but I'm not interested.
Both are edible.
Strobilomyces confusus
See Strobilomyces confusus and
Strobilomyces floccopus at
