Observation 22865: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel

When: 2009-07-03

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Zone 15 was quiet today. I found this lone mycenoid mushroom in moss, and that was it. None of the Suillus or Laccaria found in that jack pine stand earlier in the year and late last year, or the Tricholoma flavovirens and Cantharellula umbonata found abundantly there last autumn. Odd that the former two apparently have a discontinuous season.

The nearby Zone 19 pine stand (white with some red and jack; lots and lots of moss) was totally quiescent (known last year for Clitocybe cf. gibba, T. flavovirens, C. umbonata, and puffballs), as was the meadow area near these (Zone 20; known last year for puffballs, Laccaria, and Amanita cf. muscaria but not until later in the year).

Activity apparently picks up in these peripheral areas mainly in the fall, while the main woods has plenty of action in the summer (though the Mile/Pit/Zones 09-13 area especially fires up in the fall).
