first mushrooms of the year
    #4064887 - 04/17/05 08:30 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I went mushroom hunting last weekend, pickings were slim. I did find these two characters though:



Both mushroom were growing on rotting pine logs. I never tried to make a serious id, but I think the first is mycena galericulata and the second peziza badia or something like that. The first mushroom s had about a 1cm cap. The second had a cap of about 6 or 7 cm.
BTW, I have started reading about trees this winter when the mushrooms weren't fruiting. Today an old guy told me what he knew about trees in a park near my house(which was a lot). I learned tons in just an hour. I definitely need a mushroom teacher.

Nice photos.

I agree that the first ones are Mycenas, but I won't try to guess species. Here's a link to a key for Mycena, although for the species in Norway. There are so many species of Mycena that I usually only try for species on the distinctive ones.

Little cup fungi like those are cool finds and most are hard to identify even to genus. Those are great specimens.

Happy mushrooming!

Those mushrooms look like woodears to me, typically, they are dried, they turn black, then you can cut them into strips and put into stir fry. Some people say they can taste them, I can't. But I do like their texture. You see these ofen in chinese hot and sour soup.

But don't take my word for it!

Hi Yoga,
Thanks for the post. Actually I don't think they are jelly fungus (they do blacken as you suggest), but I also don't think they can be peziza badia either. P. badia don't fruit in the spring. I went back to see the same log pile and now they look like something from the discina genus.
