but isn’t this known as the Indian Paint fungus? That is what I meant. Kinda like our very own NA henna!

might be fun at some future PNW Fungus Fair!

Thanks, Debbie

It’s common enough, I’ve found it twice this year. And we always have one or two at the OMS spring mycocamp at Suttle Lake.

My mushroom hobby is serious but limited—-no dyeing as yet.

nice Sava!

I have an example in my home collection, but have never found this in the wild. How common is it in your area?

Ever tried to use it as paint?
