a great day for a hunt
    #1434136 - 04/06/03 09:31 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

we had some rain mid week and sun for a couple
of days, so I figured today would be a great day
for a hunt at our favorite little neck of the woods.

here are some pics of what we found today, enjoy!

we found a lot of these guys, usually solo with a couple
nearby...



my girlfriend proved herself quite the hunter. with very
little to show for the first hour of the hike, we stopped
for a puff. I mentioned how bummed I was that we weren't
seeing much and she suggested that I look at my feet...

male pattern blindness!



there were a lot of rotting trees around, we saw a lot
of groups that looked similar to these:



after a long hike up the hill, we came to a clearing
where there was a lot of redwoods with heavy humus
on the ground.

within no more than a 20 square yard area, we found all
of the following growing from the deep bed of decomposing
pine needles and bark...

very fragile, hollow stems with a slimy brown cap. grew
singularly, but where there was one, there were a couple
more nearby:

UPDATE: This has been tenatively ID'd as Verpa Conica

Angry seems to have found a similar one in his post.



crazy yellow ones, tended to grow in clusters:

UPDATE: this has been tenatively ID'd as Hygrocybe Marginata



(crazy yellow ones is the technical term, I looked it up :wink: )

well, shucks, it looks like they fixed that little bug
in the picture script, so that's my limit for the day.

we found 8 other varieties in that small area...

I'll update the post tommorrow.

I'm going to go read through my field guide and see
if I can id any of these.

(edit: updated with possible ID's of last two)

ahh...some more of the day's find...

this was the craziest of the bunch, it's a cup fungus
with vein-like growth around the exterior base.

(Pezizaceae of some sort?)



random loner, didn't pick and didn't note
details...



these were wierd, growing just below the surface of
the humus, you could barely see it. the cap is an amazing
greenish blue and slimy as all hell. I haven't been able
to positively identify, so I'm taking a print in hopes of helping
to narrow the search



growing singularly, strinking peach colored cap, this
picture just doesn't do it justice.



these two look to be the same at varying stages of growth.

incredible color on the caps, enhanced by the glossy slime
on the cap and stems...



nothing too spectacular...

Nice photos, and interesting finds.

The 3rd one resembles Spongipellis pachyodon.

I agree that the 4th one looks like Verpa conica

Your guess on the 5th one is reasonable. We'd need a lot of detail to be sure.


In the 2nd group, the 1st one looks like Helvella acetabulum

The 3rd looks like Hygrocybe psittacina. Strangely enough, the next few photos resemble what they look like after the sun fades tham a bit.


Happy mushrooming!

I think you're right on with Hygrocybe psittacina.

I missed that one in the MD book.

interestingly enough, this morning, after a night
in a petri while printing, the cap is going from
the green/blue to a peachy color around the
edges of the cap.

it seems like the peach one immediately after it
looks like it could be a mature specimen.

though, I'm convinced that the orange/red pair
are an entirely different variety.

thanks a lot for the input nonetheless!
