Oh baby! Bear tooth, chicken, hen...

Took the little one squirrel hunting and came back with a bunch of tasty, non-mamalian treats. A nice bear tooth which is unbelievably tasty and a small but tender chicken. I left the hen to grow a bit. I'll check it in about two days to see what happens. HOPE noone else gets to it first! LOL I also found a small bear tooth I left to grow and a couple of what I hope are blewits. They are currently down for a spore print. (fingers crossed) I also threw in a shot of some deadly Galerina. Nice cluster. Photo is a bit deceptive - the underside of those caps are actually tannish-brown. Finally, my son found a great Helvella specimen... a new one for my checklist. I haven't keyed it out to figure out which but a very cool, non-edible fungi.

Judging by the last picture, it appears you have found Helvella crispa, or Fluted White Helvella. Probably inedible.
Nice finds with the Bear tooth, Chicken, and Hen!

Could not agree more, Jon. I harvested about 4 lbs of blewits last night, and left twice that in the woods. They were already past their prime.

If you have a blewit spot, check it now. This could be a blewit year for the history books.

Also, a caution. I have seen more lilac-colored cortinarius specimens this year than ever before. Be careful because they flush right along side the blewits.

Second that Ed - "...more lilac-colored cortinarius specimens this year than ever before." I'm learning to look for that cort remnant on the stipe. Any sign of that tell-tale rust color or webbing... out it goes.

Also - regarding my original post... I am leaning toward that one I thought was a Helvella sp is actually some sort of Gyromitra species. I still have some research to do but its fitting more into that Class than Helvella. Mainly the cap shape and color of the stipe. If anyone has any input... please offer.
