Mushroom foraging

Such a shame - found several species today, whilst out in the woods observing the equinox, not one of them is edible! We have the Common Earthball, Birch Polypore (not edible but they are used for medicinal reasons, made into a tincture), False Chanterelle (two pictures), Earthstar mushroom and lastly a photo of Russula mushrooms. There's about ten different Russula species which grow in my local woods - some are edible, some not. Not going to take a risk and eat these! I do know where there is 'chicken of the woods' growing, so if I'm out collecting any of this free edible I'll add some photos.
