It was a beautiful day for mushrooms deep in Greene county at Ryerson Station. 16 people attended and, thanks to help from La Monte, we were able to ID over 40 species. Many took home a few chanterelles. The highlight was a small specimen of the fragrant Gloioxanthomyces nitidus (previously know as Hygrophorus vitellinus) finding it’s way to the table. Thanks to all that attended!
