Identifying mushrooms turns out to be quite complicated. The identification process is further complicated by numerous warnings about eating unknown mushrooms. I guess I have decided that I am not eating any plant that I do not positively know is safe to eat. I did not feel compelled to eat or try to eat these mushrooms. However, I am fascinated by mushrooms and other fungi and I have often thought it would have been nice to be a scientist and spend my time looking around and identifying mushrooms. As I get older, I realize that very few scientists actually do the looking around however.
