    Didn't know about those here in Illinois. Haven't heard of them to the best I can remember. Might' ve seen some all the times I've been in the woods and just passed them. Only ones I've ever found were morels in the spring, what I called button tops in the fall and can't remember what they were called but good sized white ones that grew up on the sides of trees in late fall.

    @Robert Forrest get 2 field books for your area and go to the woods with them that is the only way. The internet is a good starter but don't eat anything you can't confirm in your field guides

    @Robert Forrest get a copy of "The Complete Mushroom Hunter" it's a great place to start!
