Seems as though the UK fungi are ahead of Oregon this year. I can't list
what I found this
weekend, there must have been fourtyish species. Edibles in my
refrigerator recently include:
 Boletus Edulis
 Xerocomus Badius
 Lepiota Rhacodes
 Agaricus Campestris
 Russula Heterophylla
 Lactarius Deliciosus

Have also had some nice Giant Puffball (Langermannia Gigantea), enjoyed
by some friends
as well. Pity you don't get that.
