    The GF, the little dog and I were riding a fine piece of Colorado mountain meadow singletrack last weekend. Saw a flash of white as we flew past. Looked like someone had lost a soccer ball way out there in the wilderlands. Stopped to check it out. Giant puffball mushroom.

    Wish I knew more about identifying them, as they're supposed to be good eatin'.

    Wow, that's a monster. I saw a mushroom that diameter but I didn't have my camera with me.

    Those last three aren't mushrooms, but a saprophytic plant (ingests dead/decaying materials) that lacks chlorophyll. I believe it's called Indian Pipe regionally, but it might be called something different where you're from.

    There are other plant like that, too. Most of them have disturbing names.

    Great thread. I love mushrooms, too. Here are a couple from a trip to Vancouver. The first two look like Fly Agarics. I have no idea what the third shroom is, but it sure looked interesting. I have a great shot somewhere of an Amanita Virosa that I found in Maine... I will post that later.

    Apparently there are FDA approved courses that you can take to get your license in wild mushroom cultivation or something. Saw it on a Food Channel program. I love mushroom and would really love to eat those out in the woods.

    These are a couple of unusual fungi from the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. We also saw the red starry one in some native bush in Dunedin during a ride - didn't have the camera that time though.

    Anyone have any ideas what they are?

    Neither of these are a fungus. They are both non-photosynthesizing parasitic plants. They lack chlorophyll, which is why they are not green, and must take their energy from another plant. The first picture is Conopholis americana or Squaw Root. The second is Monotropa uniflora or Indian Pipe.
