Wild mushoom

Asked November 4, 2015, 3:01 PM EST

I was wondering what kind of mushroom this is... I found in Michigan, next to an oak tree. I'm thinking hen of the woods... Anyone have an idea?

Sorry, but it's the policy of MSU Extension not to identify mushrooms. The staff have not been trained in mushroom identification and, as you can guess, there is a great deal of liability involved. A misdiagnosis could be fatal or someone could become very ill.

Look for a mushroom hunters' club in your area. They may be able to identify your mushrooms.
