pnw riparian finds....and a snake eating a slug
    #8939356 - 09/16/08 04:35 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

If you guys know the mushrooms here, let me know.  Habitat was riparian at about 350 feet in cascade foothills.  The snake was a freak occurance, but it was hilarious as the poor bastard looked like he got a bitter bite.  Turns out, garter snakes (Genus Thamnophis) love slugs....I didn't know that at the time.  Oh....and there's a shroom in the pic, just to make it official.  I think they're tubaria....they grow like a blanket around here. 

The thorny group was clustered atop a rotting, mossy log and are actual mushrooms with wide, greyish to tan gills.  If anyone'd like a sporeprint I'll run back and nab one....but they don't looke edible in the least.

The coral was kind of a shocker too....hadn't seen any in that area.

Colder, wet, rainy weather comin' up in a few days.....looks promising.

1st one is a ramaria sp. or coral mushroom. Some are edible, apparently. 2nd could be a pholiota, but it's hard to make out, especially because I cannot see the stem or gills in this shot. The last pic confuses me, but those look somewhat like oysters. Once again, I'd like to see the gills, however.

The pic of the extended snake is pretty neat btw :laugh:

Do oysters go dark brown and become as tough as fruit rollups?  There were older specimens on the other side of the log that looked like fallen leaves....very dark brown with white undersides.  I'll post some more of the gills and stems in a bit.....Thanks for the tip on the spiny mothers.....I'll look around and see if I can spot similar pictures.

Thanks, Koraks....judging by the stem and gills, I think it's
Pholiota squarroso-adiposa....or some approximate.  Everything's still new to me and I can't go 5 steps without finding something new here.

Oysters may dry out and in that case may become tough. I'm not really sure if these are in fact oysters, but they do come in a wide range of colors, unlike model T Fords.

Here's a shot of what they look like within 2-3 days as they age and dry a bit.....they hold a ton of water on otherwise dry days....which is odd.

I saw a hot pink model-t a few months back....what are you talking about?

I believe the original model T fords came in just one color choice: black.

We have a winner!

Black it was.

The "original" aspect is what I was mocking.  Give anything time and people will paint it pink.

I guess 4 is some kind of Polypore

Thanks, Alan.  I can now add polypores to the list of new things to figure out.

Only photos I could find were from the Smokies, though....They may be widespread, though.

Closest I could find was the "black foot polypore", or Polyporus badius.

That snake is beautiful. Looks like a pretty massive slug it was downing...or a pretty small snake.

Alan: how'd you guess number 4 as a polypore?

I call 4 a polypore because I can't see gills in either pic and its growing on wood.

There are many polypores, to ID them to species one important thing is to measure the size of the pores, or if they are small, guess how many pores are in each mm.

I am 95% sure that the first coral mushroom is the "crown-tipped coral"

Or clavicorona pyxidata.

I love patting bottoms. Can I pat yours?

What a fag.

Having seen the additional pic, I'd have to agree that #4 is a polypore. Definitely not an oyster.

Oh, right, I didn't realise that additional pic was of the same fungus. Definitely a polypore.
