Purple Fairy Club, Porcini, and Alice's Wonderland Mushroom

Clavaria purpurea
With flash
Closer to how it really looked

Boletus edulis from a random spot on the Oregon Coast

After 6 hrs, part of the base turned blue

Found these three when I went back to take pictures of the fairy clubs

Too many looked like this

The Mushrooms of 10-15-9

1. The sulfer shelf! Laetiporus sulphureus. My first time seeing it.
Soon it will be my first time eating it.

2. Strawberries & Cream anyone? Hydnellum peckii.
Another first time spotting.

3. This is a weird one. Blueish cap turning brown, white, almost microscopic pores on the underside. Stems long or short, robust. A clump can be over a foot wide. After some quality time with Mushrooms Demystified it seems this is the edible Albatrellus flettii

You can barely make out some pores

4. These blue mushrooms almost glowed against the forest duff and
the tiny orange mushrooms they were growing among

5. the tiny orange mushroom: Hygrocybe miniata?

6. Another orange mushroom

7. and another

8. A sticky orange-brown one

9. and an orange-brown bolete

9. what tree ?
