I see these things on the Forrest floor often. I mostly see them around the Redwood trees. They are spongy and Flexi like fungi and often are dark in colour. Sometimes they have other materials, such as redwood leaves stuck to them. They kind of look like little nests, but I usually think of them as little portals to other worlds. I am really curious to know what they are. #forestfloor #portals #otherworlds #redwoods #mushrooms #fungi #fungus #exploring #nature #hikeforlife #observe #life #natureheals #grateful for #allthatis #iamthat #satnam

Check out the color of this little mushroom! No idea what it is, but found one little cluster while on a nature walk at Lacamas Lake. #fungus #mushrooms #intenseredcolor #forage #hiddennature #lacamaslaketrail #naturehike #forestfloor #camaswa #pnw

Violet, you’re turning violet, Violet! It’s always a treat finding purple fungi! I believe this to be a very very fresh young Violet Toothed Polypore, just doing its decomposing duty on a fallen hardwood log. They are very common but often go unnoticed, as with age they turn whiteish gray with only a faint violet margin. • • • #trichaptumbiforme #fungifriday #violettoothedpolypore #saprobic #forestfloorfriday #forestfloor #forestfinds #fungi #fungifreaks #fantasticfungi #mushrooms #mushroomlove #fungusamongus #mushroomsociety #mushroomhunting #mycology #mycophile #hongos #champignons #naturesbeauty #intothewoods #pennswoods #hickoryrunstatepark #pastateparks #hickoryrun #macro_mextures #naturelovers #fungi_fan_club #fungus #decomposers

The forest floor along the coast of Oregon was deep with debris and created a rich amount of biodiversity within even small areas. The details kept drawing me in, and then new creatures would reveal themselves. #caterpillar #forestfloor #travelphotography #naturephotography #touring #oregon #oregonexplored #coastaloregon #oregoncoast #naturelovers #naturegirl #fall #nature #gooutside #lookdown #payattention #explore #adventurethatislife #earth_shotz #wildlifephotography #ilovenature #roadtrip #tourlife

I love lichen 🙂 This is a Cladonia species, which shows two different types a growth structures. The tall structures are known as podetia, and the flaky texture near the base are known as squmules. So many cool lichen in northern #minnesota. This one I found in september. #lichen #lichenphotography #nature #nature_photo #mushrooms #mushroomphotography #mushroomphotos #ilovelichen #ilovemushrooms #photooftheday #photography #macro #macrophotography #fantasyforest #naturewalk #fungi #organism #naturewalk #naturephoto #naturephotography #iloveminnesota #mushroomobsession #mushroomart #forestfloor #lichens

@thevirginmycologist

A young white-capped fruiting body. I don’t think we have enough info from the picture for an identification. It could be a White False Deathcap (Amanita citrina var. alba), which is technically edible, or maybe a species of Agaricus. . However it could also be a Destroying Angel (Amanita virosa), which is deadly poisonous. Eating just half a cap can result in death. Best to steer clear of anything that looks like this! ☠️ . #amanita #amanitavirosa #destroyingangel #mushroomsociety #mycophile #mushroomhunting #forest #mushroomhunters #mycology #woodland #wood #mushrooms #fungi #forestfloor #fantasticfungi #mushroom at Llanddwyn Beach

Macrolepiota Procera, the Parasol Mushroom. It looks like an umbrella and the word "procera" refers to "tall". This tasty edible mushroom is commonly found in woodland clearings and grassy areas next to woodland. It does not have a distinctive odour. Diameter of the cap ranges b/w 10-25 cm. --- November 2018- Belgrad Forest / Istanbul at Belgrad Ormanları, Kemerburgaz

✨ comfort ✨ where do you go to feel supported? 🌳 Where do you go to feel nourished? 💓Is it by the sea or to your best friends house? 🌊 Do you find comfort in spending time in the garden or in a simple cup of tea? ☕️ I think as adults we often don’t give ourselves permission to be cared for 🌱 but sometimes we just need a little attention and that’s ok 💚 at Winkworth Arboretum

Cobalt Crust - Terana caerulea Here's on if the best UK fungi, and one I'm lucky to have lots of local to me as nationally it's rather uncommon. We managed @benwildimages first bit earlier this week in north Wales. This was taken a couple of years back at my local wood. #wildlifelovers #fungiofinstagram #mushroomsociety #cobaltcrust #autumn #woodlandtrust #fungi #fungusamongus #nature #natureshots #woodland #woodlandwalk #forest #forestfloor #somerset #cobalt #swellwoods #morning #mushrooms🍄 #fungiphotography #mushroomhunting #fungifreaks #fungilove

Seen pictured is Hydnum repandum, commonly known as the sweet tooth fungi, wood hedgehog, or hedgehog mushroom. Description: Hydnum is a mycorrhizal fungi that closely associates with various conifers and hardwoods. The cap is typically convex with a central depression that develops with age. The younger specimens will usually have enrolled edges that eventually flare out. It usually has a dry and smooth texture with off-white to yellow/tan coloration that can become brown with age. The most unique feature in this fungi is it’s lack of gills. In their place, this species has spines/teeth under the cap that run down the stem. The spines are typically slightly darker than the cap and bruises darker orange/brown. covered with spines or "teeth" that are 2-7 mm long; pale or dull orange; bruising dark orange or yellowish brown. The stem can sometimes be somewhat off-center with a dry/smooth texture similar to the cap. It is also whitish in color and bruises brownish-orange similar to the cap. The whole fungi has a brittle texture that “crumbles” before it is cooked. They can be found growing alone, scattered in small groups, or in fairy rings or semi-circles. Habitat: H. repandum is mycorrhizal with hardwoods and conifers. It can be found growing in soil and leaf litter. Season: Widely distributed and found throughout summer and fall. Edibility: Considered a choice edible, this species has a nutty, sweet flavor with peppery undertones. The smell is reminiscent of chanterelles with floral/fruity notes. The texture can be firm and it’s typically recommended that they be cooked in dishes with a longer cook time. Look-a-likes: This genus has unique qualities not seen in any other fungi making them a practically foolproof ID. Other species within the Hydnum are the only known look-a-likes for this species and they are all edible including: Hydnum rufescens, Hydnum ellipsosporum, and Hydnum umbilicatum. This is likely one of the safest fungi for novice foragers to seek and collect. at Prince William Forest Park

🌸 I can't wait to sit down and write a list of all the highlights of this trip... The immensity of it all. The tenderness, the ease. The trusting. The beasts. The LOVE. The love which keeps bringing me to states of deep emotional teariness. The ocean. The swimming in it ALL. I'm welling up writing these words as the purr of our Phangan ocean oozes from my being into the bustle of Bangkok airport. When the Dzedzes are in this mad city for a night... what should they do? ps. Expect a number of posts totally PRAISING this King of mine.

Another mycorrhizae root too isolated from white oak. Like the fungus in the last photo, this sample was from my first round of failed PCR, so I will not be able to determine its identity in this project. This photo better illustrates some of the difficulties I’ve been facing in my research. This is what the samples look like after being isolated and having gone through a pretty rigorous cleaning protocol. The level of soil still present is incredibly problematic and likely why most first found of PCR failed. Soil is a complex chemical cocktail contesting numerous compounds such as humic and tanic acids which can bind to PCR reagents and inhibit the reaction. Luckily my last round of PCR seems to have worked after a much more in depth cleaning process. So hopefully some of the next photos I post will be of identified samples. - - - - - - - #mycology #botany #fieldbotany #fieldbiology #mycologysociety #ecology #biology #fungi #mycorrhizae #forestfloor #ectomycorrhizae #fagus #macro #macros #dna #dnabarcoding #genetics #mushrooms #fungi #mycophile #fungiphotography #macro #shrooms #pcr #hongos #macrophotography #microscopy #champignons #mutualism

One of the mycorrhizal fungi that I isolated from white oak seedlings. Unfortunately the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) process that is used to make thousands of copies of a target region of DNA failed for this particular sample. So I will not be able to determine exactly what species is captured in this photo. I still thought this was one of the more visually interesting root tips though and wanted to share. Both photos were taken under a research grade stereo microscope, the first at about 10x magnification, and the second at about 20x. - - - - - - - - #mycology #botany #fieldbotany #fieldbiology #mycologysociety #ecology #biology #fungi #mycorrhizae #forestfloor #ectomycorrhizae #fagus #macro #macros #dna #dnabarcoding #genetics #mushrooms #fungi #mycophile #fungiphotography #macro #shrooms #hongos #macrophotography #microscopy #champignons #mutualism
