Wild Edible Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest

This guide provides a list of edible mushrooms in the Pacific Northwest, including Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. Do not collect where prohibited.

This list only contains "safe" mushrooms - those that can be reliably identified and have no deadly-poisonous lookalikes. As a safety precaution, all mushrooms should be cooked and eaten in small quantities if not previously consumed.

Warning: do not attempt to identify a mushroom by matching the pictures alone; compare all the listed characteristics. Never experiment with a mushroom that you cannot positively identify. A poisonous mushroom can kill you.

  1. golden chanterelle (aka chanterelle)
  2. horn of plenty (aka black chanterelle, black trumpet)
  3. jelly ear (aka wood ear)
  4. king bolete (aka cepe)
