*Note that some mushrooms are poisonous! Don't eat unless you know! If in doubt, identification by a professional mycologist is recommended. You may contact Purdue Plant and Pest Diagnostic Laboratory (P&PDL) for analysis. The Purdue Extension office can assist you in sending a sample to P&PDL for identification ($11 fee). The local Extension office cannot determine edible/non-edible mushrooms in-house.
