Gary Lincoff in Central Park June 27
Posted by pabloski on June 28 2010 17:32
Soldiering through heat and humidity, Gary Lincoff led a group of 30+ intrepid mushroomers through Central Park in our first walk of the Summer 2010 season. Though only a dozen taxa were observed there was one unusual find, a fresh, beautiful Volvariella bombycina!
Thanks to Zhennya Slootskin of goingcoastal.org for her photographs.
