Some green stain // green elf cups // Chlorociboria aeruginascens found by @daynuhnuhnuh at Prince Gallitzin State Park this summer! The "stain" form of this fungus is fairly common, giving rotting wood a greenish tinge, but the fruiting bodies (seen here) are a much rarer find!

Pictured are multiple specimens of Laccaria ochropurpurea, commonly known as the purple-gilled laccaria. Found in Arkansas and Virginia to demonstrate its broad distribution.
Description:
This species has a distinct shape and color that makes it easy for identification, although, it can be highly variable in height and color. The flesh is hearty, dense, and doesn’t stain with cutting or damage. The cap ranges in color from pale white/tan, to lilac, to silver and becomes waterlogged after rain. It can be smooth or lightly scaly and will usually have a central depression that becomes more pronounced with age. The stem is similar to the cap in coloration with a distinctive fibrous appearance that can sometimes resemble hair. It will usually have a bulbous swollen base, but can also be found elongated. The most unique characteristic is its surprisingly dark purple gills. They are always attached to the stem and are varying in spacing from close to moderate. Leaf litter will usually be dusted with their white spores if the specimen is older.
Habitat:
This species is mycorrhizal with conifers and hardwoods and is widely distributed throughout a variety of climates east of the Rocky Mountains.
Season:
Found from late summer to fall, sometimes persisting into winter depending on geographic location.
Edibility:
Has a very mild mushroomy taste, but typically takes on the flavor of whatever seasonings are being used. Best in dishes that are cooked for longer periods of time like soups or stews. Caps can also be sautéed as long as they are not too old. They have a texture that is almost “crunchy” when young, but tend to become tough with age. This species also holds up quite well with pickling.
Look-alikes:
This includes a few species in the Cortinarius genus, specifically Cortinarius alboviolaceus. The easiest way to tell them apart is to look at the gills. The Cortinarius genus has a defining webbing that covers the immature gill surface. The gills of C. alboviaceus turn rust brown as they age. The spore print is also an easy way to differentiate the species. L. ochropurpurea has a silver/white spore print while C. alboviaceus has a cinnamon/rust brown print.

I’ve had a little flurry of activity on here today….and I promise this is the last for a day or two ;-) I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all the lovely visitors who came to my open studio yesterday afternoon. I truly appreciate you turning out in such horrible weather and for buying from and supporting my small business. Thank you too for your cards and gifts …most unexpected and very kind. I enjoyed your company no end, a glass or two of mulled wine and a mince pie with you was a super way to kick off the festive season. I wish you all a happy and peaceful Yuletide xx #textileart #textilejewellery #toadstools #mushrooms #fungi #mycophile #mixedmediaart #yuletide #wintersolstice #believeinthemagic #winter #festive #naturelover #smallbusiness #buylocal #shoplocal #oneofakind #quirky #curios #giftshopping #openstudio #nottinghamshire #textilebrooch #giftideas #gifts #mulledwine #mincepies #supportsmallbusiness #handmade #gardenstudio

Happy #slimemoldsunday from my last day at the Santa Cruz Mycoflora Foray 2018. These beautiful specimens are immature and mature (spore bearing) #honeycombslimemold or #ceratiomyxafruticulosa.
It's been a heck of a trip despite less than ideal conditions. I came on this foray not to score big on edible mushrooms (although I'm not going home empty handed), instead I was hoping to meet some folks in the mushroom community, share ideas, and contribute to a growing knowledge base.
The lessons this weekend have been amazing. Watched a whole lecture on stunning mycohetereotrophs. Made oyster grow kits with kitter litter. Got a chance to revisit my alma mater with fresh mushroom eyes. I have learned that I am pronouncing almost every single genus name incorrectly. I got to try a multitude of new mushroom types and inventive dishes. I got a plethora of new books, materials, and methods. I took some great photos that I am looking forward to sharing on the coming weeks. More than anything though I appreciated meeting the people. Turns out people that take cool mushroom photos are also really cool in real life! Had a ton of fun meeting and chatting with everyone. Special shoutouts to the Instagram mushroom community that is constantly blowing my mind @leah_mycelia @yellowelanor @me_mycelia_and_i @marin_mushrooms @fungi.photography @lowbelly @astrotourist @myconomad and more that I may have missed!

made a thing for @tantziki !!! And fell in love with it. I really still love making these mushroom girls so much. (sry, not sry) #mycology #mycophile #watercolor #amanita #mushroomgirls

We found several groupings of the poisonous Omphalotus illudens, Jack O'Lantern mushrooms, not too far from the river of Chanterelles.
Mushroom hunters must be studious and ready to question and identify their mushrooms thoroughly before consumption.
Remember: When in doubt, throw it out.

Before I touch anything in the woods, I ask each leaf/rock/lichen/flower/twig/etc. if I can move it/use it. Sometimes they say yes, sometimes they say no. Sometimes they say, wait! Go forward...there's something better for you up ahead. What they don't tell me are the obstacles I will have to traverse to get to what's meant for me. First, you'll slide down the river bank on your ass and bruise your tailbone, rip the hell out of your legs on thorns, get a branch slammed into your face, find nothing, be eaten alive by mosquitoes until your eyes swell shut, cry until you run out of tears, scratch your cornea with a piece of flying bark, and worry so much that the hair at the back of your head will fall out in an odd crooked line 👴. Because if they told me how challenging it is going to be, I might not go forward to find those blessedly beautiful things that are meant only for me. These are my lessons this year. I've learned to trust. 💚

Another sweet custom, headed off to its new home this weekend. A California wildlife artist requested a “mushroom mug with a small frog or toadlet in the scene” for he and his wife to share. He wrote, ”as someone who appreciates the skills, craft and vision of other creatives, I’d love the chance to add an original piece of yours to our home.” Loved reading this. When other talented artists acknowledge and appreciate my craft, it’s very rewarding; priceless.👌🏼
.
Farewell fungi-frog-friend! Hoping it brings many smiles and good morning feels for this wildlife-loving couple. Cheers + happy Sunday!

🍄Lactarius deliciosus🍄🍴🍴🍴
Tras las primeras tormentas de principios de otoño, los bosques de coníferas se adornan con numerosos brotes de Lactarius deliciosus. Son muy llamativos por su color naranja teja intenso, zonado, con manchas verdosas en el himenio, pie escrobiculado y un latex naranja acuoso. Su olor es afrutado y su carne es compacta; a esta seta no le falta de nada para ser una auténtica delicia en la cocina, tiene múltiples preparaciones y es muy bien conocida en el mundo gastronómico, de tal manera que esta especie mueve uno de los principales mercados de setas silvestres de toda europa. Estas circustancias han hecho que la explotación masiva de los montes públicos haya mermado considerablente la población de Lactarius y otras especies comercializables.

I found so many Amanitas today, I've never found so many mushies in summer right before Christmas. This is (wonderful) madness!

And you guys are gonna get spammed pretty hard, but I know you love it 😉

The shaggy bracket (Inonotus hispidus). It's not often you see young fruiting bodies like this, you'll normally see them as black hardened brackets, either on the tree, or on the floor once they've fallen off. Found mainly on ash trees, and causes white rot in the stem and main limbs.

The only thing that I didn’t lose in the catastrophe.
I have a super healthy culture of APE going strong. I will be getting ready to get into some jars pretty soon.
One out of six...still better than zero by a long ways.
Thanks for all of the support that everyone has been giving me...and the knowledge as well.
Be well, and stay safe.
Love.
