The other day I was scouting for morels and early orchids in a patch of Elms. I didn't see any morels but I did see another kind of (reportedly) edible mushrooms. I watched some slugs happily devouring the scaly tops of these large, saddle-shaped mushrooms.
Here is a photo of these mushrooms. They are called Dryad Saddles (Polyporus squamosus). Some folks call them Grouse Wings.
Field Guide to the Wild Mushrooms of Pennsylvania And the Mid-atlantic
, says, "Some people think the mushroom smells like cucumber or watermelon."
Here is a photo of a Dryad Saddle growing out of a moss-covered fallen log.
I took some photos of the slugs feeding on the mushrooms.
