A Few New Mexico Fungi

 

A new page started July 2020. Fungi are a new area for me, so my identifications should be considered especially tenuous. As I add images, which will happen slowly, they'll be organized alphabetically by taxon. Hover over a photo series to control the images.


Amanitaceae: Fly Agaric (Amanita Muscaria)

 

Amanitaceae: Grisette? (Amanita vaginata?)

This mushroom lacks a ring on the stem, which fits with the species description. 

 

Boletaceae: blue-staining bolete mushroom (Boletus?)

When I turned this pair over to inspect the undersides of the caps, I damaged the underside of one of the caps. It rapidly developed a dark stain—a characteristic of multiple species within the family. 

 

Pleurotaceae: Aspen Oyster Mushroom (Pleurotus populinus)
