Species list from Lincoff Foray at North Park on 09/21/2019

After a successful day at Cook Forest the WPMC followed it up with the main Lincoff Foray day in North Park. About 150 mushroom hunters roamed the park on 6 organized walks. Although there was very little rain fall in the weeks preceding the foray a surprisingly wide range of species were found, although none were present in great numbers. There were 5 species that were new to the club including an Agaricus, Agaricus aproximaos, identified by our guest mycologist and Agaricus expert Rick Kerrigan. You can find pictures from the event on our facebook page and pictures of some of the mushrooms in the iNaturalist project for the event.

Species list from Lincoff Foray at Cook Forest State Park on 09/20/2019

It was a fabulous sunny and warm day for a walk at Cook Forest State Park. A good crowd turned up for the walk with mushroom hunters from as far away as Colorado joining us. We were in a slightly different location this year as the bridge at the normal location had been washed out. Despite the dry conditions we found almost as many species as last year with 126 species that were already on the clubs life list, 24 new to the club species and 4 specimens identified to to genus level for a total of 154 species. This is just short of last years 161 species and may go up over the next couple of weeks. There are some pictures of the mushrooms found in the galery on this page but you can also find more pictures on our Facebook page.

Species list from Riverview Park on 09/29/2019

An enthusiastic group joined WPMC Mycologist Jim Tunney to go mushroom hunting at the Riverview Park Day. It’s been a dry September but a number of species were found along with a new one for the club, Xanthoporia radiata. Xanthoporia radiata looks a bit like Oak bracket (Inonotus dryadeus) but often grows above the base of the tree and is normally associated with Alder.

Species list from Mingo Creek County Park on 09/08/2019

20 folks joined us at the busy Ebenezer Bridge at Mingo Creek County Park on Sunday, luckily the woods were quiet because only the coolest people go into the woods. We had some very enthusiastic young people which is always great!
Over 50 species were identified by Jared White, John Plischke, and Richard Jacob, among them was a rare Pluteus americanus that blued nicely after handling and a couple very fruitful Cordyceps militaris.

Species list from Dead Man’s Hollow with ALT on 08/17/2019

22 enthusiastic people braved the somewhat confusing trails at Dead Man’s Hollow on Saturday morning. After some shortcuts and loops we all made it out safely with many mushrooms to identify. 30 species were ID’d by Jared White, best find of the day was a single Isaria tenuipes, good eyes on that one! We also found Xylaria polymorpha, the “Dead Man’s Fingers” of Dead Man’s hollow.

Not one, not Two, but THREE mushroom events were held at Blue Knob State Park (Bedford County). WPMC Mycologist John Plischke lead a walk on Chappells Field Trail before returning to the Buck Hill Amphitheater and identifying the mushrooms. The group then inoculated logs with mushroom spawn. Once the sun set John presented a mushroom slide show. For more see the pictures Kim Plischke has posted to our Facebook page.
