    Found this cutie on our ride yesterday at the Weedpatch (San Clemente) on a dead branch of a coastal oak. I'm pretty sure it's a Lion's Mane, which are edible and considered to be excellent--but this one was a little past its prime.

    Not a fungi master so can't ID the fungusamungus. First one is behind our house, the heads bigger than softballs. Second one from Rockville, Saturday morning.

    Mushroom ID

    I enjoy hunting and collecting, IDing and consuming wild mushrooms. I also take friends out on forays to get them started.
    As there isn't a way to comment on every photo individually, I'm going to pass on identifying all of these.
    You've got jack-o-lanterns, Cortinarius, oysters, Amanitas, Clitocybes, honey mushrooms, suillus, boletes, etc.
    A couple of them are misidentified, but I don't think anyone will take that information and harm themselves.

    I'm an avid mountain biker, and live in Felton, so if anyone's in the area and would like to learn more about the fungi of the Santa Cruz area, hit me up and we'll roll out on a fungus ride.
    We'll get a good workout and stop for interesting specimens.
    It can be rewarding in a culinary sense as well as financially--several of them you can sell at local markets or restaurants, with a bit of knowledge.
    Looking forward to it.

    Waxy caps, puffballs, turkey tails, black trumpets (yum!) and orange peel fungus.

    Found these tiny cuties today, and thought, "Hey, why not put a coin in the photo for scale?" Then I saw the little guys above.

    The dime sized fungus was pretty neat. Here are some slightly larger but still tiny little cuties.

    A couple from yesterday's ride near Phoenix Lake. The orange Jack-O'Lantern was about a foot across and so bright against the drab forest floor that I spotted it at a long distance away.
