hedgehogs, hens, honeys, others

Not very clear shot of hens (Grifola fondosa, on black oak), honey shroom (Armillaria mellea), hedgehogs (Hydnum repandum, choice, about 4 lbs), and 3 examples of a genus Agaricus species that I forget the species name of, but said to be choice, and were firm, large, and good smelling (making a spore print). Today’s hedgehogs in obvious fairy rings, not near white oak (instead, giant Pin oak) – they must use the “duff” (litter and soil) to make such rings, rather than tree roots.

With lighter, part of a fairy ring of “blewits” (Clitocybe nuda) I believe, a bit old and loosing their purple. They aren’t that common near me. This spot has rings of many shrooms that are rare elsewhere. Perhaps only perfect and old forest has the full complement of fungi that it historically had. Regrown farm field, even after 100 years, aren’t the same. I studied more on web and do see examples of deeper purple young examples.
