Babcock Property Walk in Greenwich, CT 09/10/05

We were a small, but driven group of hunters this day. We didn't have high hopes for finding edibles, let alone much else, since it has been dry for nearly a month now. Taking a different trail paid off, however. We slowly moved along a small stream bed that was empty of water, but slightly damp. We also focused mainly on finding wood-fruiting fungi, acknowledging there would be little chance of finding many gilled mushrooms. Persistence pays and we did find some interesting fungi and some common fungi that took on importance givien that little else was available. Among our finds for the morning were:

Phellinus gilvus, Trichaptum biforme, Ganoderma applanatum, Fomes fomentarius, Stereum ostrea, Stereum commune and a gorgeous fresh Laetiporus sulphureus!
Hygrocybe sp., Laccaria ohioensis, Tricholomopsis platyphylla, Xerula megalosopora, Armillaria tabescens, Thelephora palmata
And a new discovery for all of us -, a 'Tar' fungus belonging to the Ascomycetes, Camarops sp.
