Not sure why but can attest to the results of consuming said fungi from Hemlocks. Chickens used to be my favorite eating mushroom until I ate some from a Hemlock. Not sure if it was the Hemlock or a newly acquired allergy and I'm too gun shy to find out which.

The top image appears to be crown tipped coral, Clavicorona pyxidata. No idea about the second image. The third appears to belong to the genera of the "Pholiota" maybe Pholiota aurivella?

What was the reaction? Gastronomic distress, I'm assuming? You didn't go temporarily blind or anything?

No I didn't go blind, gastronomic distress to the max.

I thought for sure that I missed the boat on the hen flush of the century everyone else seemed to be enjoying this fall but finally found one in a very public place the other day.



It was a bit dirty and dried out but the inside was still in good shape so with some extensive pruning I was able to get a couple pounds.

On my last unsuccessful brook trout fishing trip last weekend at least was able to come up with some hericium so the trip wasn't a complete failure.

I wasn't referring to the tree. I was trying to clear up the misunderstanding by the OP. The photo from the link doesn't show a tree.
