Species list from Murrysville Community Park joint with Friends of Murrysville Parks on 04/16/2016

Urnula craterium. By Richard Jacob

Walk leaders Richard Jacob and Pia van de Venne. A large crowd for the second walk of the season but fairly slim pickings. There were a few spring mushrooms Coprinellus micaceus (Mica Cap) and Urnula craterium () to be found along with a few perennials like Artist’s Conk. Alas no morels.
