Weird Mushroom
    #1979369 - 10/04/03 05:57 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I was out in my backyard earlier today and I spoted this mushroom. Any ideas as to what it is? The yellow edges are covered in hundreds of tiny holes. It has a real spongy apperance.







It?s been pretty humid here the past week or two and this particular mushroom is growing near a marsh.

looks like a Polyporaceae from that far away but i cant tell from those pictures they are too far. where they are attached to the wood, does the "stem" get fairly wood-like hard?

That looks like a young specimen of Phaeolus schweinitzii.

They're not edible. But they make pretty good dyes.

What part of Colorado? It's been pretty dry here.

Happy mushrooming!
