Past Finds....

Being new I would like to share some pics of my past finds. I'll not bore you with the popular ones. These are the lesser known edible and medicinal fungi.

George, I moved this thread from Post your finds into this forum.
Folks are used to looking in the photo section for this stuff.

You also can upload your photo's directly into the board here.

Thanks Frank. I'll try to keep the file size limits in mind as well.

Re: Past Finds....

The pic was taken this spring prior to morel season. The natural micro-climate and fruiting conditions in this specific area contributed to them taking on the Enoki form.

I have a pic of the classic form with larger caps and velvet stems, taken towards the end of morel season.

P.S. Both forms had white sporeprints.

I haven't uploaded all my pics yet to photobucket. I'll do that tomorrow morning after work.

Re: Past Finds....

Yes, I completely understand the morphology and how the enoki form is achieved in bottle culture. This hardwood branch was in the bottom of a small depression at the edge of a swamp. Plenty of CO2 there to make the caps small(er) and elongate the stipes. They are not completely without pigmentation but close to it.
As long as the conditions are right. The enoki form/morphology can happen in nature. I can imagine that the japanese saw fruitings like this in nature and duplicated it.

Since F. velutipes prefers hardwood I'll stick by that ID. The second pic could be F. populicola because the stump was too far gone to rule it out as a poplar. But in that same vein I can testify that no other poplars are growing in the area where this photo was taken. Without a microscope and/or extensive culture work with both specimens. You can't be sure which Flammulina you have.

Re: Past Finds....

I wouldn't mind trying it. I bought some enoki awhile back to see if I could clone some to agar. The few plates I did succumbed to bacteria. I haven't used any of the spores yet.

IMO the enoki were a little too fibrous. I have soooo many spores of more choice edibles and medicinals that it's tough deciding what I want to try next. I just got some shiitake spores last week so I would like to try them next.

I just came back from a foray. The "indicator" fungi (Corals, A. muscaria var. formosa, Destroying Angel, Russula) and ripe blackberries have clued me in that my Cortinarius caperata (Gypsy) patch is probably popping. I'm going to check it out tomorrow morning or next. I'll bring some pictures back to share if they are up.

I brought back enough chants for one last meal. It's getting dry out there.
