August 26 ’07 Mushroom Hunt

Wow… what a bounty. On a whim Nayla and I decided to go on a mushroom hunt to pull in some of our regular Agaricus campestris, Marasmius oreades, and possibly some assorted Puffballs, but we brought many more different varieties than we expected. 🙂

Here’s the total below. I’ll be adding in detailed entries as I set them up for spore prints. I figure that this blog is the best method to keep a mushroom journal.

Mushroom hunt results.

First Row: 7 blue-staining Boletes of unidentified variety (5 mature, 2 buttons)
Second Row: 1 unidentified white mushroom growing on debris, a handfull of Marasmius oreades (Fairy Ring Mushroom) caps, 8 small Agaricus campestris (Meadow Mushroom).
Third Row: 3 unidentified field mushrooms, 1 unidentified field mushroom (possibly the same as the first, but different stem color), 1 Gyrodon merylioides (Ash Bolete).
Fourth Row: 1 unidentified Psathyrella(?), 5 small assorted Puffballs, 11 Lycoperdon, 6 Calvatia.

6 unidentified Agaricus?

And then there are 6 possible Agaricus of some persuasion or another, but there are some features that may prove otherwise.

Details coming soon!
