10:43 pm - weekend foray

vuzh
We had a pleasant day in the high country searching for mushrooms, came home with (I believe) several young Queen Boletes (Boletus aereus) (it's hard distinguishing between King Boletes and Queens), a few aspen oysters (Pleurotus populinus), one massive Blewit (Clitocybe nuda) (need to verify the ID here), and one potential Shrimp Russula (fish aroma is very, very mild) (R. xerampelina).

Saw many, many "false shrimp russulas" (a large variety of purplish/brownish/ruddy russulas - not emetic) plus some green-capped russulas. Saw a few Leccinums, and many large white mushrooms that I've never gotten a good ID on.

7:17 pm - Mushroom Exonerated (not really)

vuzh
Mushroom poisoning was ruled out in sudden unexplained deaths in China (ETA barium poisoning from mushrooms was ruled out, not mushrooms altogether *thanks tylik):

9:26 pm - SMUT!

vuzh
This is smut:



We have eaten a little bit of it tonight, (to discern if there are allergies or other problems)

Tomorrow we're going to eat a lot more of it.

The little bit we had was damned delicious. Damned good smut.

Ustilago maydis

does anyone know what is the species of these three beauties? they are growing in our new yard under redwoods, pacific coastal, near bay area, but in mountains a bit. i'm new to the area and a plant lover. all i can id so far are redwoods... sword ferns, madrones, vinca, manzanita (though those were by the dunes)... there are tons of lichens here too. I'm all from the southwest too so all the newness is like whoa:) in a pleasant way but seriously i am still like what are these mushrooms? i suppose a lot will grow here that i've not nurtured which is not my usual garden. anyway have a great day, thanks for looking!

10:46 am - Found this morning during a walk...

alexpgp
I'm thinking this is Amanita phalloides:




Definitely not a fungus to ingest!

Cheers...

8:08 pm - Myco-update...

alexpgp
Most of my activity with the camera yesterday was in video mode, so I could capture what people were saying about the mushrooms that were being found. After about four or five shots, the video mode inadvertently got switched from a reasonably clear 640x480 size to a murky 160x120 size.

I got something of an education in gilled mushrooms, although one of the participants found a rather large specimen of something that resembled an aspen bolete, and we encountered a number of old Suillus specimens.

It was a day for mostly Cortinarius and Tricholoma, although I did run across some other specimens as we walked through the Edgewood Oak Plains Preserve, including a large white mushroom that was identified to me as an Amanita polypyramis (and which I did an inadequate job of photographing), and a small, dainty white mushroom that my gut immediately told me was a member of the Amanita family. The fellow I exchanged emails with about the outing (and whose knowledge of mushrooms appeared to be encyclopedic) identified the following specimen as an Amanita citrina


At the beginning of the outing, it was all I could do to find anything, which explains photos such as the following:



Eventually, I started to see what others were seeing. I even found a rather impressive white mushroom that makes me think "matsutake." There were Cortinarius mushrooms aplenty, including this specimen of what was identified as Cortinarius sanguineus:



This kind of outing is a first for me, and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Cheers...
