    Mushroom pictures

    I've been doing a lot of mushroom hunting lately as part of a course I'm taking and wanted to share pics of some of the stuff I've found.

    These first few are from Point Reyes:

    The striped ones are Trametes versicolor and the black spheres areAnnulohypoxylon thouarsianum


    The infamous Amanita phalloides peeking out of the leaf litter.

    Here's what it looked like with the leaves removed.


    The next few are from a collecting trip in Yosemite:

    A gigantic Boletus haematinus. Unfortunately, it's poisonous.


    Ramaria species


    Dinner! Cortinarius caperatus

    Some of the scenery:



    Finally, some mushrooms from around Berkeley:

    Lycoperdon pyriforme growing on a log


    Some old Laetiporus conifericola that was too old to eat.


    Amanita calyptrata/lanei/calyptroderma Whatever the name, these are some of the tastiest mushrooms in my opinion, but they are closely related to the death cap and can be rather similar in appearance.


    Some chanterelles Cantharellus californicus. These were the first of the season for my area, and with the rain we got today, the season should be picking up soon.

    Awesome! That sounds like a great class to take. I had no idea there were edible Amanita sp.

    That makes me want to go to Yosemite...
