shelf fungi in the snow...and some others
    #2227734 - 01/08/04 10:30 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

got a nice new digital camera and when i went out to take some pictures at the top of a mountain i found these...shelf mushrooms are beautiful.








ahh i love my new camera! and i love shelf fungi!

anyways, we had a freak warm streak in upstate new york and these little guys popped up once it hit about 50 degrees.





i wish that second pic had come out better so you guys could see how pleated the caps were...absolutely gorgeous.

Nice photos and interesting specimens. We don't get many snow photos.

Happy mushrooming!

Probably not. The small shelf fungi tend to either have textures like wood or leather, or they often have intensely bitter flavor. The last ones pictured look like Mycenas, and Mycena is not a genus with any significant edibles. It's also a genus that one should not experiment in, as several species are known to produce muscarine, a fairly nastly toxin.

Happy mushrooming!

What a pity ! I am always looking for edibles that grow in winter.

The main winter edible (in areas with the usual temperate climate) is Flammulina velutipes (enokitake).

In northern California their main edible season is during what the rest of us call winter, but their weather is distinctly un-winterlike, at least by the standards of most of the rest of us. On the other hand, when the rest of us are finding mushrooms they're having a dead season.

Happy mushrooming!

Yes, I have found some nice enoki this winter and already cloned one. But they are really hard to isolate. I have always got some sort of bacterial contamination till I used antibiotics. Now it seems to grow out the agar plate real fast. :tongue:

it may not snow more than once or twice per decade here, but it sure gets cold enough to.

it's no Alaska or NWT though :smile:

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
