Many Mushrooms....Gno Gnomes

by Marsha August. 27, 2010 3806 views

Since I had no idea of the names of these mushrooms I asked for help. Thanks to Ricky (see comment below) for sharing his knowledge!

In late July my grandson, Jackson, and I hunted for mushrooms in the mountains. We found a surprising number probably due to the larger than normal amount of moisture we've had this summer. I liked how the texture and colors of the mushrooms contrasted with the pine needles, cones, twigs, and growth on the forest floor.

P.S. We didn't eat any of them ;))

Hiding under a rotting log.

Found it this way….not sure how it got turned over…

Jackson has a good eye for spotting mushrooms!

I think I once found some mushrooms - can't be sure since I don't really recall the events that transpired thereafter... [Just a joke of course...] ;)

Super excellent set of mushrooms :)
My advice first of all, is never eat any of them . Only if you go with an expert, or only if are those that you buy on the supermarket! ;)
so the possible IDs can be:

1# - [i]Lactarius aurantiacus[/i]
2# - [i]Amanita rubescens[/i] ? If it had a ring, it is it!;)
3# - I've no idea :/ it is hidden. :/
4# - I can't tell you exactly what it is, but seems some mushroom from [i]Amanita[/i] family :)
5# - [i]Mycena stipata[/i]
6# - [b]Orange Cup[/b] ([i]aleuria aurantia[/i]) or [i]Flammulina velutipes[/i] - really cute one!

these are the possible ids :)
I hope I could help, But I'm not sure if they are 100% correct, but at least you've the closest ID ;)
