    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.

    There ya go. Those 2 you first had tricked me when I first started mushroom hunting. They are quite cool though.

    Well it sure looks like it could get a person high...or at least upchucking. The first two, however, those will get you twisted. Somebody apparently took a nibble...

    I'm not saying it won't get you high, but it definitely doesn't look like psilocybe cubensis (magic mushrooms). Be careful with that ****... even magic mushrooms. I have an awesome case of depersonalization disorder due to eating a quarter of potent cubensis.

    Maybe not fungi, but interesting none the less; they fit the thread of strange growths.

    Those sure do look like A. muscaria. They are plentiful in the N. America. Sometimes yellow, sometimes red.

    No clue what it is. The ride to get to it is pretty killer though... not because of the technical terrain (its gravel roads) but more the multiple and not rolling 17% hills.

    Very cool pictures, but eating any wild mushrooms as delicacy or to get high is imo very dangerous. Read about too many people dying every year because they mis-identified some mushrooms.

    the stalk is a flower i think, but the red part looks like some sort of fungus to me.

    edit: good photos deleted due to mtbr posted photo policy. (you post here, they own it).

    you know it's a good night ride when there's an 8 foot tall smiling mushroom in the middle of it....

    I think I got you all beat on size. Taken with my "fabulous" camera phone. Coming up over a boulder I saw this "thing" next to a tree and 1st thought was that of a skull. Lucky it wasn't as I would have shrieked like a little school girl.


    As you can see, someone else got to it before me and parts were broken already. A bit bigger than a basketball!
    Tempting to try a get a taste but I wanted to be able to go home that day. Soft like a marshmallow and cold and slimy with a latex like outer skin.
