Species list from Black Friday walk at Hartwood Acres on 11/27/2020

Another warm Black Friday saw a group of intrepid social distancing mushroom hunters meet at Hartwood acres to see what bargains we could find. With only a couple of days of frosts in the weeks before Black Friday there were high hopes for a wide range of species including some terrestrial gilled mushrooms. The group split with Cara Coulter and some hunters exploring the conifer section of Hartwood Acres to the north of the mansion and the main group visiting “Mushroom Valley” to the south. Meanwhile Judy Mackenroth went for a very socially distanced solo walk and contributed her list to this report.

In 2016 we found a rarely observed Clitocybe cokeri but hadn’t seen it since. This year I’m pleased to announce that we found it again. In the intervening time it has undergone a name change so is now know as Pseudoomphalina cokeri. On iNaturalist there is only one other site in the US where it has been identified we presume it is a more common but overlooked species.

There were quite a few new to the club species. One of them is a mushroom (or mold) that grows on another mushroom. The species is Epicoccum nigrum and it grows on old puffballs and was found and identified by Judy using club mycologists John Plischke III book. We found another mushroom mold  growing on the base of a Clavulina coralloides (White Coral Fungus) specimen, Helminthosphaeria clavariarum, it’s also in John’s book. We found a Multiclavula mucida (White Green-algae Coral) specimen in the mushroom valley. It’s an interesting species as it forms a symbiotic relationship with algae although it is not a lichen. Most fungi that form relationships with algae are Ascomycota but Multiclavula mucida is a Basidiomycete. Judy found a related species, Multiclavula corynoides, that is new to the club. It has a club like head rather than a straight club shape. A new to the club mycena species was identified by Cara Coulter, Mycena griseoviridis, along with one that is known. Mycena epipterygia (Yellow-stalked Fairy-helmet). The Mycena epipterygia is quite fun as it was very sticky. Both were in the conifer section of the woods. Cara also found Rhizomarasmius pyrrhocephalus, a marasmius like small mushroom with a dark colored tough and long stem, almost like a rhizomorph. Last of the new species that I am going to mention was Xylodon paradoxus a crust mushroom that at first glance you might think is Irpex lacteus, the Milk-white Toothed Polypore. On closer inspection you can see that it it is actually interesting shaped pores rather than tooth pores of Irpex lacteus, hence the common name Split Porecrust. Another way to differentiate them is that Irpex lacteus tends to have cap-like margins that extend beyond the substrate while Xylodon paradoxus does not.

If you were playing the fall bingo the walk would have been a great way to add to the board. We found 16 of the 25 species in one walk. Sadly you would not have been able to score a bingo.

And of course there was a selection of unidentified species on the table too.

Species list from Barking slopes on 11/1/2020

It was a wet Sunday morning but four mushroom hunters were not to be deterred. As far as we are aware this is the first WPMC walk at Barking slopes, an Allegheny Land Trust property. We took the lower trail path and never made it up to the higher portion of the property.
There was a range of tree species in the valley with lots of Elm, a few Maple but not many Oak along with a lot of other species. We quickly started finding a variety of fungal spices but not many larger terrestrial species.

Richard Jacob took a number of the interesting specimens home for microscopic analysis. The first one was Bactridium flavum, small yellow blobs that when you look closely are made up of sacs. The species is kind of new to to the club, it’s been found it before but was not successfully identified. It’s an anamorph with conidia (an asexual, non-motile spore of a fungus). Richard ID’ed an eyelash cup specimen as Scutellinia colensoi. First time for the club and possibly the country. There have also been a couple of other unconfirmed sightings of this species. Richard also looked at the Resupinatus species and its spores did not match Resupinatus applicatus, the normal name we use for Resupinatus in this area. The specimen currently remains unidentified.

We were excited by some mock oyster’s (Phyllotopsis nidulans) as then would fill a spot on the bingo card but they were actually Crepidotus crocophyllus – damm. . .

WPMC Fall Mushroom BINGO 2020 Runs through November

Back by popular demand, WPMC Identifier Cara Coulter has created the “WPMC Fall Mushroom BINGO 2020” Project on iNaturalist. It runs from October 15th through November 30th, but you have to join the Project to play. Each time you spot a mushroom that is listed on the Bingo card, submit it as an Observation and add it to the Project. The first person to get five in a row–either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally–is the winner! The first three to get Bingo will win a prize created by Cara herself. Good luck! You can join the project now but observations wont count until the 15th October:

Species list from Lincoff Foray at North Park on 09/12/2020

This years official foray was split between three walks in the morning and an online interview with Long Litt Woon due to the ongoing pandemic. The normal events were sorely missed especially the mushroom feast and the gathering of mycologicial expertise that we normally have. We held walks at Devils Elbow, Deer Shelters/Harmar shelter(Swimming pool) and Wyoming Shelter led by Fluff Berger, Richard Jacob and Cara Coulter respectively. Each walk had 5 or so participants. The weather was nice on the day and there had been some rain over the first couple of weeks of September setting things up nicely as far as the mushrooms went. For about the first time this year in the Pittsburgh region we found an abundance of Amanita and Bolete species. Although there were only three walks and less than 20 people involved we still found and identified over 100 different species. This year was not the lowest number of species found either, both 2002 and 2010 were lower with ~70 species each time due to very dry weather proceeding the foray. We expect that there would have been many more species discovered if it was a normal foray with more walks and people looking. Cara Coulter on the Wyoming Shelter walk added “Found a nice log filled with fresh Laetiporus sulphureus for our walk members to enjoy. A lovely walk filled with plenty of mushrooms. Highlight of the walk was finding Xanthoporia radiata a beautiful shelf fungus with orange hues.”

As always thanks to the walk leaders and club members who joined us for the morning and allowed us to continue our 20 year streak of collecting at the Lincoff foray in North Park.

Species list from Walk at Wingfield Pines with Allegheny Land Trust on 09/26/2020

Our group of ten walkers investigated the slopes on the Eastern side of Wingfield Pines. Conditions were dry as you can probably tell from the species list.

We had a lot of interested questions. E.g. What made the Irpex lacteus (Milky wolf’s-tooth) we found different from Radulodon copelandii (Asian Beauty Fungus)? I’m still struggling with my usual Springtime inarticulateness so here’s a better answer than I gave on the walk. I. lactus has pores and very short teeth, where the teeth of R. copelandii are much longer–really spines.

The featured image is an unidentified collection with a pink cap with orange to pink gills with yellow gill edges. If you have any ideas about this mushroom, please add them at https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/60845526. Identifed by John Plischke as Rhodotus palmatus (Wrinkled Peach).

Species list from Cook Forest State Park on 09/11/2020

This years walk at Cook forest were split between shelters 1 and 2 with walk leaders Richard Jacob and Adam Haritan respectively and a roughly equal number of participants. Unfortunately due to the short notice that participants received not everyone could make it. We will look at changing sign up to first come first served so that people receive plenty of notification in the future. Despite the lower number of participants than expected both groups found plenty of mushrooms. As per other locations where we have walked this year we may not have found a lot of anyone species we did find plenty of variety.

Richard Jacob writes at shelter 1 we found very few Amanita and Cortinarius species. We did found a number of bolete species including Boletus edulis which made up for it. Many of us found a colony of Cordyceps militaris during the walk resulting in a hunt for the bodies. The other common cordeceps at the location Tolypocladium ophioglossoides (Goldenthread cordyceps) was also found further in the the walk on a slope. There were quite a few Lycoperdon perlatum (Gem-studded Puffball) around too.

From Shelter 2 Adam reported that despite the relatively dry conditions, a decent number of species were found within the 2-hour walk. The most prolific species were False Chanterelles (Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca) and Dotted-Stalk Suillus (Suillus granulatus/weaverae). Surprisingly, no honey mushrooms were found on our walk, and the usual diversity of Cortinarius was lacking as well. Still, most of the major groups of fungi were represented at the identification table and the Club has a few new species to add to the clubs life list.

Other interesting species of note were Melanophyllum haematospermum and Stereum gausapatum (Bleeding Oak Crust), both of which had been found at Hartwood Acres but not many other locations. A fun find is Pseudohydnum gelatinosum (Cats tounge) a transparent toothy jelly mushroom. Finally Ischnoderma benzoinum was identified which according to Gary Lincoff Cook Forest was the only know East coast location for this typical west species.

A few of us explored the Firetower region with its oak forest. We found a few more species of mushrooms but conditions were very dry and we did not see many of the species we typically find in the area.
