Found these near Benton, Pa Riverside and plentiful! Had a few for dinner parboiled with sweet chili sauce. No gi effects. Tasted fairly decent!

I could not find this mushroom in my reference books but found it here on Rogers mushrooms. I believe it is a Panellus Serotinus. Found growing on a dead maple tree.

The young Panellus Serotinus is a very pretty mushroom indeed, with its yellow gills and olive pileus. Though listed in most books as an edible, all of my attempts have ended in slimy failure.

I was stumbling about in the forest this week, not really expecting to find mushrooms any more since we have had snow. I came across quite a large log with a few Panellus Serotina growing from it. There was an 8" hole in the log so I could see that it was hollow. I blindly stuck my camera inside and this is the picture I got. I never really thought of looking inside hollow logs before.
