More pretty inonotus dryadeus pics and other Nov. mushrooms

Recommended Posts

I found another inonotus dryadeus today. Pretty and sparkly. This one kind of wrapped around the bottom of the trunk of the tree.

Those tannish Amanitas do look like Amanita crenulata... champaign colored cap, powdery whitish warts on cap, short-striate cap margin. Only thing that seems questionable is the basal structure, which looks like it may feature a limbate volva... that is, material that vertically sheathes the lower stalk. In my experience, though, A. crenulata has variably structured stalk base. A. crenulata is a species with ringed stalk, but the ring often falls off early in the mushroom's development. It is reported as primarily a northeast NA species. So a collection made in Georgia seems interesting. In PA I usually find it with conifers, but it is also reported as an oak associate.

I think the LBMs may be a species of Laccaria.

Once again JD, nice pictures! I am done for the year here. It is suppose to get down to 5 F here tomorrow night. My arthritis is starting to nag me me; so winter is not far behind. I dread the thought of winter. I am just hoping that it does not last until the middle of May again.

dakotabob, here's hoping the winter is short for you.

Dave, I am working on collecting those amanita citrina's for Rod. He says he has found them in South Carolina near Georgia border as late as Christmas Day.

Gives me a little purpose, until the end of the year, to hike for those Citrina's. Evidently they turn a shade of lavender when exposed to near freezing temperatures.

One of the things that makes the citrina types interesting is that some seem to turn patchy-lavender on the caps, and others don't. So the question arises if this is indicative of more than one species; my understanding it's part of what's being studied.

Collecting for study just adds to the fun! A whole different reason to get excited about finding beautiful and interesting things in the woods.

The top photos look like gems, jdcooper. :)

I really wish I would take some time off and go scout for what is available around here, but am bogged down in one too may projects.

So I doubly enjoy your photos!
