And I’m sure that you carefully replaced those fruit bodies when you were done! ;)

Picking is not allowed in any of the open space preserves. It only took me 30 seconds to get busted – As soon as I got out of the car I saw some Agaricus albolutescens and Amanita ocreata. As I took pictures a ranger walked up and asked what I was looking for. I told him I was photographing deadly mushrooms. He thought that was really cool so he went and got his camera and took some pictures of it.

nice find Allen. But can you pick there???!

funny that you have been hunting Sierra Azul recently…it was discussed at length as the lead article in the current issue of Bay Nature mag (altho there was no mention of mushrooms). just goes to show how even trained naturalists don’t see or know about the essential fungal components of our natural landscapes. sucks to be them.

This Cantharellus look like glamorous model, not real one. And so big! Or is the tree leaf very small? I read about California have big trees, big fires, big problems with budget, but did not know about big Cantharellus! How marvelous that the Cantharellus is so big! I will dream about all the many fine people must join me to eat it.
