Species list from Black Friday walk at Hartwood acres on 11/29/2019

Over 20 people joined us for a walk on Black Friday hunting for a different sort of bargain. This year the first of the non winter walks was held at Hartwood acres at the end of April. Eight months later we were back for the last of the formal walks for the year. There are plans to hold a winter walk once a month but exact dates depend on the weather forecast.

It was a cold start and didn’t warm up too much but that didn’t slow anyone down. Hartwood acres rarely disappoints and for this walk we found a number of uncommon species mixed in with all the normal fall mushrooms. Of particular interest were cup mushroom Ionomidotis irregularis. Club identifier Fluff Berger donated the voucher specimen that Michael Kuo used to document the species. One of my favorites is Multiclavula mucida, a club fungus that is symbiotic with a Coccomyxa sp. of algae and very similar to lichens. True lichens consist of fungi that have internalized algae. In this case the algae are growing externally to the fungi on the same rotten wood substrate. Another difference is that Multiclavula mucida is a basidiomycete while most fungi species associated with algae in lichen are ascomycete.

We also have a new to the club find, by eagle eyed Tristan Coulter, Melanophyllum haematospermum also know as the red gilled agaricus. It’s a very pretty mushroom with distinctive gill coloration. According to iNaturalist it has been found in western PA before but not may times and not by the club. The second new to the club find was Protocrea pallida a yellow mold that by all accounts only lives on Tyromyces chioneus.

After some microscope analysis we can add two more new to the club species. The very pretty eyelash cups are difficult to identify and most guide books list just one species, Scutellinia scutellata. It has become apparent that this species is not as abundant as once thought. Three eyelash cup populations were found on this walk. One could be identified with some confidence on site, Scutellinia setosa. After looking under the microscope at the other two Scutellinia pennsylvanica and Scutellinia olivascens were identified. Scutellinia pennsylvanica has been found by club members before but not formally collected on a club walk. Originally described from the Mon river valley but found all over the NE. Scutellinia olivascens was more unexpected although it has been observed by the New York Mycological Society members in that vicinity. We are now up to 6 different eyelash cup species in our region.

We also found some seasonal edible species and lots of deadly Galerina.

Species list from Murrysville Community Park on 10/19/2019

The sun was out and it was a beautify warm autumn day, perfect for a walk in the woods. About 16  people took part looking for mushrooms in the mixed woods at the top of Murrysville Community Park. Despite the rain this last week larger terrestrial mushrooms were in short supply. The rain did bring out some jelly mushrooms and slime molds plus there were a number of small cup mushrooms found. Mushrooms of note were some older Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca (False Chanterelle). They had a soft felt like texture on the cap. There was also a pretty Lactarius vinaceorufescens (Yellow Latex Milky) whose latex turned yellow over 30 seconds or so from being cut.

The eyelash cup mushrooms are difficult to identify without using a microscope so I took the single specimen that was collected home and had a look at the spores. Our field identification was Scutellinia scutellata, the species that is in all the guide books. I put a cover slip over the mushroom and wrapped in in a damp paper towel and plastic wrap. This causes the mushroom to sporalate and hopefully most of the spores were caught on the cover slip. After a couple of hours I placed the cover slip, spore side down, on to a microscope slide and added some lactophenol blue stain. The lactophenol blue stain helps visualize the spore ornamentation. The hard work was rewarded and the species was identified as Scutellinia subhirtella based on the spore size and ornamentation, hair lengths and shape plus other characteristics. We don’t currently know how common Scutellinia subhirtella is compared to the more well know S. scutellata and S. setosa but it seems to fruit in the fall like S. setosa while S. scutellata can be found from spring to fall. There are more Scutellinia species in the area too, Scutellinia crinita was recently identified after a walk at Mingo Creek. It looks similar to S. scutellata with very long eyelash hairs but the spore ornamentation is different. Looking closely at Scutellinia specimens over the coming years will help us lean more about the different species and their fruiting times.

Week 2 of the 2019 Continental MycoBlitz

Do you want some of your fungal specimens DNA sequenced for free? Join Week 2 of the 2019 Continental MycoBlitz.

It’s simple. Next week, Oct. 20-27, photograph specimens in the field, upload them to iNaturalist, and collect/dry your interesting mushrooms. Mail up to ten of your most interesting specimens to Purdue University. A full set of instructions can be found at this link.

The club has two walks during the event. There is a midweek special at Cook Forest State Park. Cook Forest has a diverse environment from old growth Hemlocks to Oak forests. This means there are lots of different fungi there and we have over 365 species in our records for the location. Wednesdays walk will surely increase that number.
And on Saturday 26th there will be a club walk at Peters Lake Park.

If you cant make either of those events please consider collecting then submitting samples by yourself.

2019 Photo Contest results

Here are the results from the 2019 photo contest. Thank you to all the contestants that sent in pictures, the judges and Josh Doty for organizing.

Species list from Chatham’s Eden Hall on 10/05/2019

About 20 people showed up for delightful Fall weather at Chatham’s remote farm campus. It was a mix of Chatham students and WPMC members. Conditions were relatively dry and large mushrooms were relatively sparse on the ground, but we still found good diversity.

We had a great team of identifiers: Jim Tunney, Sarah Banach, Judith Mackenroth, Stephen Bucklin, Bob Boziljevac, and your correspondent, La Monte H.P. Yarroll. Everybody put in a great effort to identify as many collections as we could.

Judith Mackenroth introduced me to Trichaptum subchartaceum, a Violet Tooth which is much larger and more flexible than the familiar T. biforme.

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.
