Colorado Mushroom Fair Results
    #815641 - 08/13/02 06:27 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

OK, Mr Mushrooms, I know you want photos, but I'm having trouble uploading for the moment, so I'll get them posted to this thread when I've got the problems resolved.

There were a total of 64 species of mushrooms identified. This is an all-time record - low. In an average year we get over 200 species. Droughts *suck*.

One interesting bit - 10 minutes before we closed the doors this guy comes in, comes up to me and says he's got some mushrooms he wants identified. The first one he whips out is about a 2 pound Laetiporus sulphureus. For those who don't know, these are instantly identifiable, even if you've never seen one before (think day-glo orange, pink, and yellow). Way cool, but they have never been found in Colorado. So I ask him where he got it. He had just flown in from Washington, DC, and immediately went from the airport to the fair. It went straight into the herbarium (which has over 23,000 specimens).

Happy mushrooming!

I see that you maintain a mushroom herbarium. It would be interesting to know how do you prepare and store these mushrooms. Do you also take spore prints or make clones?

(If you have trouble uploading pictures I can do it for you, if you mail them to me or something...)

The herbarium is the one maintained by Vera Evenson at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Sorry if I was unclear enough to create a misunderstanding. I regularly contribute specimens to it. It is federally registered so that mycologists from all over can study its contents. I know that the specimens are dried, and I believe that spore prints are stored for those specimens where they were obtained. I am not currently doing any cultivation. If there is interest, I could certainly get a tour of the herbarium and take some photos to post about it.

I will try to upload some more to see if I can get around the problems, and I will keep your kind offer in mind if I continue to have problems. Thanks.
