Peninsula Mycological Circle

Found them I think; Looks as if they meet at the Redwood City Library. I was looking for a group that might actually go out into the field. I’ll look them up to see if that’s part of what they do.

Thanks, Tom!

If you’re referring to these Christmas ornaments, I just keep the IDs as a tongue in cheek point of reference.

If you’re referring to more serious mycological identification, you should check into one of the local mycological societies. Here in the Bay Area there is one based here on the Peninsula Peninsula Mycological society) as well as over in the Oakland area (BAMS) and another down in Santa Cruz (I don’t recall the exact name, but I bet someone will pipe in).

As for riding, you may have seen me riding about along the peninsula. On weekends I usually try to get one good ride in. I can often be found on Kings Mountain Road, Tunitas, Old La Honda, Page Mill, West Alpine, Montebello etc. If you see someone with a Pink Floyd or Green Eggs and Ham jersey, say hi, it might be me.

These are fun :)

I live in San Mateo and am interested in learning more about identification. Is there any local group, formal or informal where one might connect?

btw: I wonder if I’ve seen you out riding. I ride about 150 miles a week, Sawyer Camp Trail, etc ..

They were at a store called Restoration Hardware. I’ll post when I can get back to check them. They had more mushroom ornaments than I’ve ever seen before in one place.

This one is not in my collection of Christmas tree amanitas.

Very best,
