I am going to start being more professional with my finds. This was a spur of the moment hunt and I didn’t have any collection tools and I haven’t had batteries for my camera all season. I appreciate all guidence I have learned a lot from everyone around here.

These were picked the day I posted this. Also even if I gave a general location it would be revealing my secret old growth rain forest that is near portland. Sorry these were not found on main st. The hydnum repandum looks like it sat under the snow all winter. But the neotubiformis looked like they were at the end of a nice flush.

It was interesting too we were having lunch under an old growth snag full of widow makers when an older fella came out of nowhere. He was very suprised to find us where we were, as were we to see him. We had stumbled upon a secret path. He said that only about 100 people know of the trail and he was very thorough in showing us the “correct way” to stay on the hidden trail.

After he left we followed his directions. After awhile we decided to turn back cause we knew the snow was coming up and wanted to cover more ground on the loop out.

We relized on our way out the ol trickster pointed us just past a very distinct and beautiful mushroom lover, old growth tree enthusiast, sight seeing bird watchers dream of a trail. Lol this trail is somewhere between molalla and Detroit lake.

Dear Hunter Hunter:

Please consider the following. They will make your postings friendlier to other MO users, and may get you better and more responses to your questions:

1. Use the Collection location. It’s legit to use — as you did here — a “Seen at” location. But MO functions better (for instance, in Observation maps) if you use a Collection location. You can do that — without revealing the exact location of your find — by including an accurate, but imprecise location; for instance something like Tillamook State Forest or Clatsop Co.

2. Include some personal info. Again, it’s legit to be — as you did with this posting — completely anonymous. But it’s friendlier if you include at least a smidgen of personal info. And it could lead to useful conversations when you meet others face-to-face. This could be as simple as sign your given name to your Comment. Even better, tweak your Profile (in Your Summary) so that your given name shows up and so that people can send email you directly via MO, without seeing your email address. (I would have preferred to send this Comment directly to you instead of posting it publicly.)

3. Be more selective with photos. Again it’s legit to post lots of photos. But it’s easier for others, takes less time for you to upload, and eats up less storage space, if you’re more selective. Consider whether that other photo gives more information to the MO community. If not, just leave it out.

SE Main not Collection Location

The Location for this Observation also had me confused until I realized that it’s a “Seen at” rather than a Collection location.

The elevation (a couple hundred feet below the snow level) might mean that this (as well as Observation 163373) are patches which fruited in the fall season and were preserved under the snow, as opposed to fruiting just now.


Top of Larch Mtn, maybe?

Nearest patch of C. neotubaeformis is quite a ways from Portland Adventist Medical Center. Usually growing on buried wood. Not much of that at PAMC.

same as C. Tubaeformis

Craterellus neotubaeformis is a proposed name for what has been called Craterellus tubaeformis in western North America. See, e.g., http://www.mykoweb.com/...
