After a 15 minute rain delay,12 stalwart hangers on had a great day at the North Park Blackrock Shelter Aug 13, 2016 finding a trove of excellent edibles and many of the usual suspects. The recent rain helped increase our findings. There were some species we could not identify with certainty and therefore did not post our guesses ( like Amanita spreta, red capped russula, and immature Ischnoderma resinosa ??)

Species list entered by John Stuart. Identifiers were Dick Dougall and John Stuart
