    dex- Really like the B&W #5 . It's an aminita which are usually very photogenic. Possibly Aminita pantherina? Impossible to say w/o more info and possibly spore prints. #6 looks like a more matured aminita as well. FWII.

    Some really great pics folks!

    Here's one I took last year in Bin Forest (Aberdeenshire) with my old Fuji p&s, before I got my DSLR



    Not sure what type it is. Maybe a Hypholoma Fasciculare but I could be wrong. I'm only really familiar with the magic type ;)

    Its a very common misidentification. They actually have a symbiotic relationship with real mushrooms and the host tree. I believe they were frequently used medicinally as a sedative. They do, however, contain toxins (like 99.9% of all mushrooms).

    Interesting. I'm not real familiar with species found west of the Mississippi, but I'd ponder a guess that is a "lobster". Lobster fungus is very odd in the fact that any mushroom can become a "lobster". Apparently, there is a fungi that lives off of a host mushroom and "infects" the host, causing it to turn from its natural color to a reddish-orange specimen. Some mycophagists claim that all lobsters are edible, even if the host is inedible, or even poisonous. Some disagree. Some, like me, say I'd never put anything into my mouth unless I was 100% sure of edibility, therefore, the only lobsters I eat have claws.

    The season is just starting with the after the first heavy 7 inches of rain. Here's a pic of what I think is an oyster mushroom out in Fairfax, CA.

    Tunica, LA, August 2008, shortly after heavy rainfall. It disintegrated the next weekend into what looks like a black charred mess, but two just like it sprouted up one morning shortly after. Some people think fungi are from outer space.

    Not quite sure why we care...
    I'm not quite sure why we care about photos of mushrooms in a mountain bike passion thread. But I fell off my bike and busted my arm, so went mushroom hunting instead of riding with a cast.

    So mountain biking > broken arm > bored > mushroom hunting > mushroom pics... Maybe now I begin to see the connection.

    Here's our too-many pics:

    Easy one. That's Chicken of the Woods or Laetiporus sulphureus. Very common and tasty! It will likely pop up in the same place for a few years.

    Last week in the White Mountains in AZ. I've never seen so many mushrooms and so many different varieties...it was a very wet winter!

    Met some peeps out picking chanterelles, they must have had 40 pounds with them.
    Ironically we met them at the campground where the escaped murderer and his fiance were caught!

    A couple from up a trip up Rattlesnake Creek. We're just learning about much of the local flora.

    Back from the grave for this thread, again
