Harriman Fungi

Here are some of the fungi we saw on July 29th by Stony Brook in Harriman State Park, NY. There were more mushrooms than I have seen in years that day. Conditions must have been just right. I did my best to ID these with my two books on Fungi. I am not 100% sure if I got them right. If there are any mycologists out there who can correct me, please do.

Need I say, do not eat the Destroying Angel, Amanita bisporigera – Wikipedia. I included the Indian Pipes, Monotropa uniflora – Wikipedia which is a plant and not a fungus.

    I’m impressed by the variety you found, and also by the fact that you even attempted identification. I give up on fungi too easily, I suppose. Part of the problem is that they’re like the so-called ‘little brown birds’ or the ‘darned yellow composites’ — there are just so many.

    That said, the Indian pipes are easy to ID, and one of my great thrills was finding a stand of them in east Texas woods. They really are fascinating plants.

      Too right. Sometimes I can only ID fungi as gilled or with pores. I agree, Indian pipes are fascinating.
