i’m kind of traveling from mexico to argentina and i do a fair bit of trecking in remote locations (the amazon in peru soon)

i’m gonna be honest and was looking for subcubanos and then all of the sudden i was taking photos of many different types of mushrooms

i have a bunch more photos from today. i guess i can post them up but i don’t really know what they are or anything

i’ll try to post them now

and welcome to MushroomObserver. What is the nature of your fungus hunting in Ecuador, and can we expect more?
