Cool Yellow Mushrooms with Brown Spots

These fellas popped up in the last few days, growing on an old log in the wood pile.  I think I've narrowed the identification down to one of the species in the genus Pholiota, but I'm no expert on this stuff, so don't quote me.  (More here)

I'll try to get an expert opinion to verify.  In the meantime, aren't they just beautiful?


  1. I think I found these today in Watauga county nc smokey mountains.

  2. Thanks, Ken. I just sent you an email. I have a request into Bill Russell for help in ID, too, but I haven't heard back yet.

  3. I as well jus found some of these in western West Virginia
