Today's Finds

:rockon:Went on a hunt this afternoon and saw some interesting things.  Snapped many pics for your enjoyment.  Feel free to identify any that you like. 

I would really like to know if anyone has seen a similar growth from the caterpillar?

Like cordyceps I thought.



Blue/Green staining Bolete?



Russula?






This one looked similar but with the upturned cap.  Maybe a mutant?


Bolete of sorts?


Younger


And even younger


Together


And staining blue, green, and red/pink


Similar but with different stipe and different habitat.



??


I believe a sulfur tuft


Huge



Stinkhorn


Really curious about this one...

The ?? one photo 16 looks like a lobster mushroom, it's a parasite that engulfs other mushrooms. If it covers an edible you can eat it too. key word IF, I was too wary to try it.
The boletes are a prize though!


Your first mushroom may be the bitter bolete but I haven't seen it with such a dark cap. Not edible if it is.

The other boletes are birch boletes probably, edible but prone to worms, you have to clean them carefully.

You certainly have some Russulas there, but the pinkish and reddish types could be poisonous. The first set of boletes appear to be scaberstalks/Leccinum based on overall appearance, but the staining seems odd to me. The next shrooms seem to be stalked polypores or other ornate but inedible polypore. What you thought could be sulfur tuft certainly isn't, as templeton1 wrote, and looks something like a bleached, old Mock Oyster or wood-growing, solid polypore...I believe you meant "sulfur shelf" (Laetiporus), of which it just might be an old, now-inedible specimen :tongue: I can't think of that red-orange freak as being anything other than a Lobster Mushroom, and the cluster of brown wood-growers is most likely Pluteus cervinus, though it'd be worthwhile to bruise them in case they're P. salicinus.

Pluteus cervinus, P. salicinus are never that big.  I pinch and smell them too, just for the heck of it.

I don't often pick the mushrooms unless they are abundant.

I'm interested to get a proper ID on the pluterus suspect.  I can return tomorrow to take a couple of samples and make a print.  I will pinch and smell :smile:

Does anyone know what the hell is going on with the caterpillar?

it looks just as you thought, to be a parasitic fungus like a Cordyceps.

without knowing of either a good key, or the distribution of the many species, i wouldn't know where to start identifying it. i presume you are in the americas?


--------------------



Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

It should smell vaguely like potatoes if it is cervinus.  I have no doubt that is what it is.

Thats not a fungus on the caterpillar, they are egg cases.
