there seemed to be a real polarization of votes, is all…

for no real reason that I could see.

Patrick added his comment re: the necklace containing actual Sarcodon back on the fifth. I just saw it today.

Not drama, just correcting an error.

is that I didn’t see the actual mushrooms at first.
No drama was intended, Debbie.

fabulous mushroom portrait…

nice model, too. I can see why she won the contest, and this might just be enough of a reason to get ME to Telluride next year! I love creative minds. :)

Why so “funny” about a “non-fungal” designation, folks? When, say, our friend Erin models a porcini, without benefit of clever costuming, or even Christian, who proposed “non-fungal” for this multi-fungal sighting, models a porcini, it still gets called Boletus edulis.

Why the different treatment here?

This is merely a plus de ultra Sarcodon imbricatus photo.

Lighten up, people. Fungi can be fun, too, eh?

Britt B. will know

She won the costume contest at Telluride — and by the way, those ARE S. imbricatus that she is wearing around her neck! Found her name — Claire DeLeo
