how very much we all miss by mostly concentrating on the bigger things, not to mention that big ole edible mushroom bias, blinding us to almost everything else.

of course, youth and good eyes are also a big factor. that’s why I try and bring a small child with me when I hunt … better than truffle dogs for spotting those tiny fungi under adverse conditions! ;)

just kidding, but I have to say that during some of our recent Pt. Reyes forays for our annual Fungus Fairs, during these past several years of terrible drought, it was the kids on those collecting forays that seemed to be targeting in on all of those hiding fungi. Kids are GREAT hunters, and have zero fungal bias. It’s all cool, to them.

Hey, guess that I must be a big kid myself! :)

The P. that Jacob found was pretty deep in duff and small plants. I have no idea how he spotted it, except that he was looking for small stuff. He found the E. roseum same day.

not so conspicuous ..

but right along a path, and purple, so it caught David’s eye.

I IDed it as Pseudobaeospora, even scoped it, then put it on the drier, where it became a really, really ridiculously tiny mushroom, and apparently fell thru the cracks or entered a black hole or something. At any rate, it was never seen again!

but those big forays get a mite crazy, and not everything makes it thru.

Still, we’ll always have Little Rock.

Is that a mushroom dyed hat, Martin? Nice Avatar! :)

Awesome!

Was this conspicuous? A visiting mycologist found this in Shenandoah National Park in July of 2013. But I have not seen it since (except in a photo in this years T-shirt!). http://mushroomobserver.org/141191?q=2rJ7x

this was a first record for Pseudobaeospora in Arkansas.
