    #2861714 - 07/06/04 04:42 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

this was my first morning in my new home so i decided to go for a short walk and maybe do some mushroom hunting. among others found, these below are the mushrooms i brought home:



the puffballs:



just barely too late:



just in time:



the coral:

.

i am going to try to id the coral properly. if anybody has any info for me on white fleshed yessow corals, i'd be glad to hear some input.

the gem studed puffballs are because they have not yet started to sporulate.
the large sculpted puffball is not because it has started to discolor and gained a slight unpleasant smel/taste. this occurrs very shortly before sporulation and quickly renders them completely inedible/unpaletable.

The corals are tough to identify properly. Was it growing from wood or on the ground?

Clavicorona should have been growing from wood, and the tip of every branch should look somewhat like a crown (might need a magnifier to see).

If it was growing from the ground, then it's probably a Ramaria, and much tougher to be sure on species. The definitive, official way to tell if it's a Ramaria is to apply a drop of Ferrous Sulfate to the surface of a branch. Ramarias will turn green, the various other genera of corals will not.

After that, identifying Ramarias starts becoming difficult. You have to determine things like whether there are clamp connections on the hyphae and whether the spores have amyloid ornamentation.

Happy mushrooming!

they where growing from wood, having yellow branches with just the slightest orange-pink tinges towards te bases, having white flesh. that is realy al that brought me to my guess about the ID.

the crowns are clear to see.

i do not have access to a good microscope at teh moment [let alone any microscope] so i'll leave them be for now.

btw. the N. ponderosus are boiling in heavily salted water [they smell incredible] after wich they will be drained, rinsed and added to lightly salted and seasoned sterile water and kept in the refrigerator for later use.

the puffballs where cut up into 1/2-1/4" pieces, battered with an eg/buttermilk biscuit mix and oil/butter fried until just crispy [i'm eating them right now].

According to Dr Alan Bessette, et. al. (Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America), all you need to know to identify Clavicorona pyxidata is that they were growing from wood, that they are a multibranched yellowish coral mushroom, and that they have a little crown like tip to each branch. They're one of the few coral mushrooms that are easy to identify.

The Neolentius ponderosus I've eaten we've either fried up thin slices or grilled them, much as you would matsutake. In texture and flavor they seem to be an OK substitute for matsutake, although a bit chewier and with somewhat less flavor.

You've got a good season underway, and great photos (should have said that before)!

Happy mushrooming!

'nother note: so everyone can get a good idea of the scale, the paper bag in the photo is of the size that 40oz. beer bottles are usualy sold in [U.S.].

also, for anyone who may try to identify Clavatia sculpta for the first time, there is an amanita [Amanita magniverrucata] wich looks almost identical just before opening or from the top. it has a bulbous base. it can easily be distinguished by cutting the specimen equally in half trom the middle of the cap apex to the middle of the stalk. this practice should be aplied to all puffballs prior to consomption to aviod mistaking an amanita button for a puffball and to insure that it is still immature.

There's a very good chance that the coral is a different species. Vera Evenson has told me she estimates we probably have about 50(!) species of yellowish corals here in Colorado. The yellow coral mushrooms are bewilderingly similar to each other.

More great stuff. I gotta get out there and find me some.

Happy mushrooming!

another [not short] norning walk [Re: canid]
    #2907556 - 07/20/04 05:29 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

hello everybody. i went for another walk this morning and went quite some distance into heavily forrested hillsides seeking boletes and whatever else i could find.

the habitat:







some amanitas:



why one should always dig into the ground being sure to get the whole stipe and any volva or bulb:



a grisete with a split stipe [and half rotted]:



this time the stipe was too rotten to get the volval sheath up with it:



the boletes:

Boletus barowsii:







very rotten:



Boletus edulis [i believe]:







some other boletes:





can see clear spore deposit on the ground under these:



hedgehogs dug up:





and for a splash of color:

could be right on that one, that was a first impresions type guess and since i didn't plan on eating soggy smelly fungi i left it at that.
