MLCO Foray Report – Nov 10, 2018

Report and pictures by Dr. Bitty Roy (MLCO Steering Committee)

Most of the Foray members are gathered around a large specimen of Agaricus silvicolisimilis

On Saturday, November 10th the Macrofungi of Lane County Oregon (MLCO) sponsored by CMS had a foray to the upper McKenzie River.  The forest was mixed bigleaf maple and cottonwood along the river, complimented by Douglas fir and Western Red Cedar in other places.  We had dry weather, continuing this scary dry fall, but making it very pleasant to be outdoors. Luckily for us, the shade of forest had kept the moisture in from the rains in October, so we had plenty of fungi to find (see Table below; photographs of everything we saw are in iNaturalist). 

Inocybe lilacina group.  There are likely several species lurking in our little purple Inocybes.  The DNA will help us to sort them out.
