Can you identify this mushroom and is it edible?
Typically, when identifying mushrooms, one needs multiple characteristics to examine such as color of the mushroom, color of the spores it produces, is it a gilled mushroom or is it a collection of tubes producing a pored surface, is it growing in association with other plants, etc. However, this particular specimen is relatively easy to ID. Its common name is Jack-O'Lantern Mushroom, Omphalotus illudens. It is NOT edible. It is considered to be toxic. This is a very common late summer and Autumn mushroom.
The jack-o'lantern mushroom typically grows in clusters where all of the mushroom stalks emerge from a common growing point where they emerge from the ground. Although they appear to be growing form the soil, they are connected below ground to a source of wood, i.e. tree roots.
