Joint NYMS & COMA Annual Walk and Picnic at Fahnestock State Park at Pelton Pond 09/11/05

Another gorgeous day in a series of sunny, dry days marked the weather for our annual walk and picnic with members of the New York Mycological Society (NYMS). We resolved to collect polypores, thinking there would be little else to discuss at the demonstration tables following our perfect picnic gathering. As it turned out, we were surprised once again by the fecundity of nature even when it hasn't rained for weeks on end in our area. Of course, it helped that some of us, led by Denis Aita, scoured a normally boggy area looking for fungal treasures! In addition to our finds, we had a most delightful picnic. Everyone brought wonderful offerings to share with each other and no one left hungry!
Among our fungal finds were the following:
Amanita fulva, Amanita flavoconia, Amanita vaginata.
Hygrophorus tundrus var. sphagnophilus, Mycena inclinata, Laccaria ohioensis, Lactarius sp., Lactarius lignyotus, Lactarius peckii, Lactarius quietus, Russula silvicola, Russula variata, Russula compacta
Scleroderma citrinum, Lycoperdon pyriforme
Boletus pallidus, Tylopilus felleus
Trichaptum biforme, Ganoderma tsugae, Ganoderma applanatum, Fomes fomentarius, Stereum commune, Laetiporus sulphureus
Dacrymyces palmatus
Thelephora palmata
Hypoxylon on Birch bark, Leotia lubrica
Ceratiomyxa fruticulosa, Stemonitis sp.
