Late Summer Mushrooms of Indiana
    #3095033 - 09/05/04 02:49 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Here are some fungus pictures from the last three weeks in Indiana. The autumn rain has started to fall and finally a fungal bloom is beginning.



This tiny reishi was poking up through the ground in the middle of the trail. It's probably the size of my thumb.


This is a Gymnopilis, but I didn't ID it to species because I couldn't find a monograph online. They were all over the place.


This tremella led me to my first Smooth Chanterelle. I didn't take the tremella home, but you bet I took the chanterelles home! I think this is Tremella foliacea or at least a close relative.


At a different park loaded with American Beech, Armillaria mellea was on just about every fallen tree. They surely fruit gregariously. The trees hosting the Honeys were covered in a carpet of mushrooms. BTW I busted my shit and almost my camera taking this picture. Lesson learned: Never lean on rotted logs.


At another park, we found a HUGE patch of Destroying Angels. There were probably enough of them in the park to kill a couple hundred men. The Angels extended throughout the area of the park we walked through. From now on, we'll call it the Forest of Death.


When we first spotted these, I was very hopeful that they were Boletus Edulis or another edible close relative. But sadly, they are not. They didn't bruise or have red or orange pores, but they failed the last test. They tasted horribly bitter. I tried a spore print overnight. It didn't seem to drop anything or if it did then they were white.

Yes, Destroying Angels or similar species grow all over the US.

Nice stuff and photos.

Your last one (assuming it's a bolete - you didn't actually come right out and say it was) is probably Tylopilus felleus, a bitter lookalike of Boletus edulis. It should produce a pinkish spore print. Another thing you can check for on it is that the reticulation on the stem near the top is dark instead of light as in B. edulis.

Happy mushrooming!

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

Redcap: Are those chantrelles or lookalikes? I can't see the gills. I grew up in Milwaukee. Are you familiar with the Wisconsin Mycological Society? There is a really prominent mycologist that works at your local University, Tom Volk.

ToxicMan: I kinda figured that it was the Bitter Bolete, T. felleus. I tried a spore print, but it didn't drop anything so I tossed 'em.

Here's somemore!!!


Armillaria Mellea

Again.

If this mushroom weren't stinking and riddled with flies I woulda put it on my head and worn it as a crown. I didn't even touch it.

Likely hygrocybe or hygrophorous

This was 3" across and soaking. nevertheless I took it home washed it and ate it. Yum!

Hopefully I will start finding more Hericium and Grifola soon. I've heard reports of massive Grifola fruitings just north of me, but I'm in the Wabash valley and it has only dipped below 80 at night. It's stinking hot and humid right now!

I have no idea what they were. :frown:
Yes, I have heard of Tom Volk. I will try to get in touch with him. Thanks for that reminder.
and once again, great pix! :thumbup:
