Washington laughing gyms and lots of other stuff
    #3127219 - 09/12/04 10:50 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Had to drive over the cascades this afternoon and made a few stops to check up on what was fruiting, as I often do :smile:.  Lots of fungi around, we've been getting rain regularly and prime conditions for growth, it was definitely worth stopping for, here's some pics...





The laughing gyms, either G. spectabilis or G. ventricosus, checked a few patches, this one and one that was barely starting to pin at a lower elevation.  these guys pop up here in mid september like clockwork, pretty cool.



A few of what I believe to be king boletes (Boletus edulis) :laugh:, found a few more but these were the only ones that weren't full of worms by the time I got to em.



A large Boletus mirabilis I found at the base of a conifer stump, the cap was 8-10 inches across but fly larvae had rendered it inedible by the time I found it :frown:


one of the other B. mirabilis pins I saw just coming up at a higher elevation, only picked one, came home and fried it up with some fresh steelhead, god damn that was good :grin:.  I'll definitely be picking these when I see them next, they don't look too appetizing but they're pretty damn tasty if you fry em up till they start getting crispy.



I saw these on the side of the road and thought I had finally scored some chanterelles, but when I went to take a look they turned out to be Gomphus(Cantharellus) floccosus, the wooly chanterelle, which isn't edible :mad:, I will find the real ones someday, damnit :tongue:




Saw quite a few of these Amanitas around, haven't tried to ID them yet


came across a few Amanita muscaria




A few of the different types of coral fungi I saw around, they were everywhere


Dunno what this is, smelled really strongly of dirt, heh.  they were growing in patches around the suspected B. edulis.


these colorful little mushrooms were everywhere, mycenas I'm thinking...

that's all, enjoy :cool:

DH

Wow, awesome pics DH. Very nice

Amanita 2 looks like a text book example of a Death Cap(A. phalloides) to me.

Nice finds!  We also saw the explosion of coral mushrooms and those little orange things.  The entire forest floor was like a giant springy properly-misted casing layer :smile:
