Some photos of mushrooms – California

Here are some photos I’ve taken over the past few days of random mushroom species that have been popping up. It’s that time of year.

I took a stab at trying to ID a few. If you know any of the IDs please let me know via the comment forum. Much appreciated. If you’re interested, here are more photos I’ve taken of fungi/mushrooms over the years… and the occasional fungi-related article.

Click individual photos to enlarge.

I think the photo above and below are Coprinus lagopus.

I think the photo below is of some old Naematoloma fasciculare.

Note sure what the species is in the two following photos.

  1. We have been experiencing some mushroom action of our own here on Serendipity Farm. We top dressed our new addition veggie garden beds with mushroom compost from a local mushroom supplier and are getting all sorts of mushrooms growing on the medium including lots of edibles that we are enjoying. I found a really weird one that looked like a sea sponge yesterday that was hollow like a cup and one that looked like your first photo. I LOVE fungi. Aside from wanting to know which fungi I can eat (obviously my first reasoning 😉 ) I just love how fungus is so important to our entire biosphere and am absolutely fascinated by them.
