Stony Brook - 7/20/13

Fungi NewsTom A good turnout for such a hot day! Thirteen people found over 70 species and everyone got plenty of Lactarius corrugis and L. volemus (probably the two most abundant mushrooms of the day). Very few black trumpets and fewer chantarelles. Two different collections of Innonotus obliquus. One rattle snake. Thanks to Aaron, Juniper and Dennis for helping with the ids.

Wolfe's Pond Park - 7/7/13 - Species List


NYMS mushroom walk about Wolfe's Pond Park, Staten Island - About 15 people showed up on the hottest day of the year (so far) - and we found more than 70 different kinds of mushrooms, including some good edibles - the ferry ride is always such a neat thing to do, not least for the view!

Clove Lakes Park species list 6/2/2013

Fungi NewsGary Lincoff's notes on the walk:
(note 1: very few polypores and crust fungi seen, compared with a typical fall walk here. Also, no jelly fungi or inky caps seen – too hot and dry most of the past week...Compared with last year’s June 2nd walk about Clove Lakes Park, we found a few more fungi last year, including a red-capped Russula, but most of the usual suspects showed up, and we did find nice specimens of our year’s first bolete, Suillus granulatus. The cicada symphony in the tree tops, and the “willingness” of those near the ground to pose endlessly for photos, made this a very special day for us.
(note 2: Tree damage from last year’s storms, Sandy and others, is conspicuous throughout the wooded parts of Clove Lakes Park – little or nothing appears to have been done here, making it difficult to follow paths through the woods.)
