Mushroom Foray #5

A July 8th mushroom foray with John Ford (can you call a two-person mushroom hunt a “foray”?) resulted in a whole bunch of new species for me.  Here are some of the species we found.  If you can identify some of the “mystery” species, please leave me a comment.  Thanks!

And finally, found the same day in my yard, growing on a mulched trail, was the crab-claw-like stinkhorn:

Stinkhorn: species?
Stinkhorn: The Stinky Squid, Pseudocolus fusiformis

More photos and post about the “stinky squid” are here.

  1. The Cortinarius iodes might actually be Cortinarius alboviolaceus
    The mystery mushrooms that you thought might be Chanterelle have true gills and might be Citocybe or some “Funnel Cap” mushrooms but also just might be any gilled mushroom overexpanded from the rain
    Mystery: red waxy cap? might be the Fading Scarlet Waxy Cap from Lincoff’s Audubon Guide
    The Pale Bolete might be some type of Tylopilus
    The Amanita verosa? is probably Amanita fulva or Amanita vaginata
    The Disk fungus? is Galiella rufa, I think
    The Stinkhorn: species? is Clathrus columnatis, I think
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos! i say “might” on everything because ID from photos is so hard

    1. Thanks, Becky! I looked at the stinkhorn, Clathrus, and compared it to the “stinky squid”, Pseudocolus fusiformis. The “arms” seem to radiate out from a central stem, so I think these are Stinky squids. I had a lot of them last year in the same spot (in mulch) and they just started popping up again this week. You certainly smell them before you see them!

      John thought the disc fungi might be hairy rubber cups too (Galiella rufa).

      Thanks again for helping me with the ID!

    1. Thanks for the ID help, Brock! And yes, there were a lot of black trumpets out there once I finally knew what to look for. But boy, are they camouflaged!
