Re: Orange/rust mushroom identification help

To determine species by picture more detailed pictures are needed. Need good shots of the gills. Many mushroom species helps if you dig up the whole mushroom so that you can see the foot. And some mushrooms may still require a sporeprint for good id. Some times sporecolor is enough, but not always.

Also the mushroom seems quite dried out/tanned, and likely wasnt orange to begin with.

Im no expert in determine species, but these are some of the "tools" used to determine species of mushrooms.
I love to pick mushrooms and i know pretty much what to pick in my area, but thats about it.
