Walk leader Dick Dougall. It’s a great time of year to to go mushroom hunting. The recent heavy rains are starting to make the summer mushrooms pop and we found quite a few on this walk. A couple of members found Craterellus fallax (Black trumpets) in large enough amounts to take home for a meal.  Cantharellus lateritius (Smooth Chanterelle) buttons were found under a few trees that tell us Chanterelle season is just round the corner. The wet weather meant we found some slime mods and jellies as well as a variety of Amanita’s. There were a couple of mature boletes found and Scott Pavelle took some time to identify it. The identifies first thought that it was from the Boletus subvelutipes (Red mouth bolete) group. However an online discussion and close examination of the specimen let to a final identification of Suillellus luridus. You can see the online discussion at Mushroom Observer.
