I googled images for all the types and decided that way.

Is your intent to separate theme and use them individually or are you just curious?

I want to separate them to use that way. They don't all rehydrate at the same rate. Some start to turn to mush, while others still have hard bits.

I can find lots more recipes for dried mushrooms of specific type, than for mixed.

Also, I want to try that porcini latte that everyone has been raving about, without having to buy any.

Andy, do you want me to correct your spelling on this one?

Last night I saw on, "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" on the Food Network, was a mushroom dish that sounds like fun:
Mock Eel

Braised Shiitake mushrooms in a ginger sauce. A delightful, crispy flavor and texture.

After braising the chef took scissors to the cap and cut it in a spiral shape, about the thickness of a small eel (3/8"-1/2" across), floured it and then fried it in a wok with a ginger sauce. I'm sorry I don't have the exact recipe, because it's still listed as a menu item on "A Single Pebble", Burlington, Vermont.

Sounds good...looking for a ginger sauce!
