When: 2012-07-07

Collection location: Parque Nacional Lagunas de Montebello, Mexico [Click for map]

Who: Ivan Rodriguez (Ivan Rodriguez)

No specimen available

This area of Chiapas in Mexico was one my favorite locations, and what attracted me more than 50+ blue and green lakes was the offerings of fungi on the coniferous areas surrounding those bodies of water. So many shapes, sizes, smells, and colors of mushrooms. Definitely the most I’ve seen packed in one area. Here is an example of an odd one that I have not attempted to identify — due to the chance that my American field guide might shed no light on the identity of this Mexican mushroom.

Another nearby fungi. I have no clue if this could be a young specimen or an old one that somehow lost its cap.
Side view of the second cluster. There were only these two within about two feet of each other.
Top view of the second cluster. Please excuse the poor image quality! I was so amazed by these mushrooms that I didn’t take the time to properly snap decent shots of them.
