Species list from Pleasant Valley Park on 10/13/2018

A return to the Pleasant Valley Park in collaboration with Friends of Murrysville Parks saw a mixture of over twenty  members and non-members take a longer than expected walk around the park. We normally try to make to back to the starting point in two hours but ended up taking a bit more of a perimeter route than expected and returned far later. However, we did find a lot of the choice edible Honey mushrooms, both Armillaria gallica with a bulbous base and the larger Armillaria mellea species, along with aborted entoloma’s that are the result of the Entoloma abortivum attacking the honey mushrooms. The park has mixed woods with both sections of red and white pine and larger sections of deciduous mixed oak, maple hickory and other species. This resulted in the wide range of fall mushrooms found and of course there were some unidentified ones on the table.

Species list from Lincoff Foray at North Park on 09/15/2018

Following up from the successful walks at Cook Forest State Park on Friday the main foray was held at Rose Barn in North Park. Perfect weather again made for five very pleasant walks in the woods in the surrounding area. There had been plenty of rain the in the proceeding weeks resulting in a wide array of mushroom species. As per normal there were still unidentified species on the table at the end of the day. Approximately 80 species from Cook Forest and North Park were sampled for DNA.If anyone has some additional pictures of the event that they would like to share please let us know.

Species list from Cook Forest State Park on 09/14/2018

Fabulous weather for a walk through the cathedral area of Cook Forest State park surrounded by towering Hemlock trees. A huge range of species were found and identified on this walk with many making their way to the display tables at the Lincoff Memorial foray in North Park the next day or selected for DNA barcoding. Amazingly 26 species new to the club were identified by club mycologists and identifiers. The area is so diverse with fungi that there were still unidentified species on the tables at the end of the day. Walk leader Garrett Taylor also led some smaller expeditions in the afternoon to other areas in the park to pick up a few more species not found in the Hemlock groves.

Species list from August Monthly Meeting on 08/21/2018

This months meeting was all about macro and micro examination of fungi. There was a demonstration of chemical testing and microscope stations set up around the meeting room. At the back of the room at the mushroom display a wet summer with frequent rain full brought in an abundance of species.
