    Saturday's finds

    Holy Smokes! That's a great haul!

    A quick walk yielded these!

    Very cool. You should keep an eye on the tree in sping and fall for the next few years. They'll fruit on the same tree for a few years.

    Agaricus bisporus?

    Thanks Dave!
  5. I have no information on matsutake but do have some about things surviving the atomic blast. There is a ginkgo tree in central Hiroshima that survived being in the epicenter of the blast. It is hundreds of years old.

    The HENS!!

    I’m in Nebraska. Hopefully more to come. I picked them today and think I got about 30 lbs. pretty sure the one pictured is 15 lbs! My new PB hen!

    Agaricus bisporus?

    My first time finding these. Not sure if they're bisporus or maybe fissuratus.

    Boletes growing on wood

    I found some very similar to these when in Michigan visiting the in-laws. I found one that was growing from wood and all the others were terrestrial. I thought they were B. pallidus. I'm no bolete expert, so you should probably wait for somebody else to chime in.

    The HENS!!

    Only one of my usual trees was fruiting, but it was a doozy! This is how I fund my wife's anniversary present every year! Still warm, but looking like cooler temperatures and more rain is coming so should have quite a few more this year. Happy hunting!

    Nothing in Nebraska yet.

    Locally scarce mushrooms

    Chanterelles and boletus edulis group are present in my area (Omaha, NE) but very scarce. We do get a ton of morels and hen of the woods though so it makes up a little.

    Does anyone know what these are?

    Something from genus Marasmius. http://www.mushroomexpert.com/marasmioid.html

    Daisy and the Velvet morels

    Looks like a lot of fun.
