Honey mushrooms are a delicacy, but unfortunately have a deadly look-a-like called Galerina autumnalis. NEVER attempt to identify any mushroom from just a photograph.
There are a number of other factors one must consider such as time of year, geographic location, habitat, known species characteristics, and host species. Sometimes it is necessary to perform a spore print, or KOH test to make a final determination.
Experience is the best teacher, but NEVER experiment casually with eating wild mushrooms. Even veteran mycophages, (mushroom eaters), have perished from letting down their guard!
* Please note - all walks are tentative based on weather and conditions.
