Here’s a fungi update brought to you by

6/10/09 – Here’s a fungi update brought to you by Ellyn and me. Spring and fall bring the boreal forest a bounty of funky mushrooms, and it’s interesting to keep an eye out for what’s going to pop up next. – Lee
This is a false morel. Please note: it is inedible, very poisonous, in fact.
Any one know what this one is? Ellyn saw it in a patch of moss. It must have been hard to spot. Notice the size. The sticks next to it are pine needles.
I took this picture of a redbelt shelf fungi during my walk last week. Notice the old man’s beard (a type of lichen) in the foreground.
