Orange, purple of black ones? Just curious - we have collected a few pounds of black trumpets (a kind of chanterelle) 2 weeks ago. They were everywhere. They are still out there but now in decay mode after repeated drying up and rehydrating.
Orange ones - I don't know enough about mushrooms to identify the black or purple ones. They were very fine specimens, it was a good haul.
I'd love to learn more about edible mushrooms. You see so many of them! But seems like the stakes are high if you misidentify.
