Agaracus campestris (Pink Bottom)

Amanita muscaria (Fly Agaric)  Here are more pictures of a front yard full of them.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Brewer's yeast--well...  if not a mushroom, it is a fungus...)

Bolete sp.

Hmmm...  NOT Chicken of the Woods... I think it is probably Pleurotus ostreatus

Chlorophyllum molybdites (Poisonous when eaten raw.  Take my word for it...)



Coprinus comatus (Shaggy Mane)

Coprinus micaceus

Ustilago maydis (Corn Smut)  A delicacy to many Mexicans, here prepares as a stuffing for  quesidillas.


Morchella esculanta and its spores

Morchella semilibera (Semifree Morels)

Pleurotus ostreatus (Oyster mushroom)

Pleuteus sp.

Polyporus squamousus  (I call it "Black leg")

Calvatea gigantia (Giant puffball, and its spores.)

Hmmm...  who knows what this one is???

Auricularia auricula (Wood Ears--used in Oriental soups, etc.  Its consumption may be linked with low coronary disease rate in China!))
