As always, this venue never dissapoints. Roger Willson, whose home is adjacent to the preserve, was our walk leader. We didn't have to venture very far along the trail to find a number of interesting fungi and slime molds. The following fungi were recorded for this site and date:
Gilled Fungi: Amanita bisporigera; Amanita flavoconia: Gymnopus sapineus; Hygrocybe sp.; Inocybe fastigiata; Inocybe sororia; Laccaria amethystina; Lactarius griseus; Leucocoprinus caepestipes; Pluteus cervinus; Psathyrella rugocephala; Psilocybe cyanescens; Russula spp.; Russula variata; Tricholomopsis platyphylla
Polypores and Sterums: Ganoderma applanatum; Phellinus gilvus; Polyporus elegans; Trametes elegans; Trametes versicolor; Trichaptum biformis; Stereum ostrea
Pluerotoid: Crepidotus applanatus; Crepidotus crocophyllus; Crepidotus mollis; Hohenbuhelia sp.; Panellus stipticus; Pleurotus ostreatus
Corals: Clavicorona pyxidata
Jellies: Dacyrmyces stillatus; Tremella mesenterica
Boletes: Boletus campestris; Boletus chrysenteron; Gyroporus casteneus
Myxomycetes (Slime Molds): Arcyria cinerea; Arcyria denudata; Arcyria nutans; Ceratiomyxa fruticulosa; Ceratiomyxa fruticulosa var. poroides; Stemonitis sp.; Tubifera feruginosa

I scouted out another of our favorite haunts this week to see what might be up in a different environment (and also be photy-worthy). The following different species were found:
Amanita brunnescens var. alba; Amanita ceciliae; Amanita citrina; Amanita flavorubescens; Amanita fulva; Amanita rubescens; Amanita sp.; Clitopilus prunulus; Cortinarius corrugatus; Lactarius hygrophoroides; Lactarius lignyotellus; Russula laurocerasi; Russula spp.
Boletus griseus; Boletus ornatipes; Boletus sensibilis; Boletus subvelutipes; Boletus variipes; Tylopilus plumbeoviolaceus
