Yes, you can collect it by the wheelbarrow load on the Cape.
For some reason dyers seem to like me…

Pinus rigida, it all makes sense now. Dyers paradise…D.
..next year’s NEMF (North Eastern Mycological Foray) is being held at Cape Cod in October. This is one of the best mycological events in the Nation, with a strong emphasis on taxonomy. Stellar mycologists lined up for next year include Roy Halling (current Prez of the MSA), Bart Buyck, European Russula maven, and Anne Pringle, Harvard prof. currently working on some fascinating studies on Amanita phalloides. Many others will be there, too.
Next year, take some jaw-dropping photos of your own!
If not conifers then I’d take a very careful second look at the id of C. semisanguineus. I wouldn’t spare any id steps
- you’ve got plenty of exsiccata to do it right :)
And I assume you collected these with certain purpose in mind, like dyeing, right? Picking 33 lbs. of small mushrooms is hard labor too…
I’ve seen some large patches (Nor. California) of Cortinarius croceus under pines — these typically fruit later in the season. Anyway, I could collect several tens of fruitbodies, max up to 100-200, but what you’ve got there is insane…D.
I collected about 33 pounds; the wheelbarrow only has 30 pounds in it…
I can’t believe the entire barrow is full of it, but still, this is an amazing shot!! Nice.D.
…unless, of course, you pack a suitcase full of dried when you come out here in January!
A wheel-basket, what a great idea!
