I apologize for not having all of my pictures uploaded as of yet, but I'll get this post started now so I can post pics as I upload them. Most of these mushrooms were found in suburban New Jersey in a micro-habitat of small scrubby pines, oaks, beeches, sandy soil, moss and small hills. I searched and searched for chanterelles until I cam upon this one spot where chanterelles, black trumpets, hedgehog mushrooms, and countless other great shrooms abound. It's really amazing how much diverse mycelium this small plot sustains. New Jersey is pretty cool: Just the other day I found jack-o-lanterns in a graveyard and chicken mushrooms at a farm, but no pics of them.

Today's pics: Hydnum Repandum (sweet tooth, hedgehog mushroom). Early August in NJ. Very tasty!



Amanita Muscaria Var. Formosa? (Yellow Fly Agaric). Mid August in North-Central Pennsylvania next to a river near pines:




Note the two rings above the bulb. This is what makes me think they are Muscaria and not Amanita flavoconia, which I see so much of in NJ.

Sorry the mushrooms are on my kitchen table. I have some habitat shots of other shrooms, but these particular shroom's nature shots didn't turn out.

Nice stuff. Enjoy the Hydnums. They're one of my favorites for eating.

The other looks to be Amanita muscaria. The volva is indeed one of the more important characters for identification.

Happy mushrooming!

Thanks Toxicman!
Here are today's pics from yestermonth:


A big milky popping up through the ground clutter near an old beech in south jersey:


A few of the many many black trumpets I found in the same place:



A red-gilled, bluing bolete found in the same place. This species may be poisonous, though I cannot pinpoint it exactly. The damage was most likely done by slugs. Their shiny slime was everywhere.




Amanita Rubescens pushing up through pine-needles in a schoolyard. The camera seems to have removed a lot of the redness on the stem and elsewhere. It almost looks like a death cap from the pic, but it definitely stained red.
