Notes: Collections of Joe Cohen from the “pop-up” walk led by Gary Lincoff, and
featuring a ferry ride between Manhattan and Staten Island.
Relatively few taxa of large mycoflora were observed. The group compensated by finding relatively many crust fungi, myxomycetes, etc. Cf. Kuo, M. (2004, December). Apiosporina morbosa. Retrieved from the MushroomExpert.Com Web site: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/apiosporina_morbosa.html. (“Apiosporina morbosa doesn’t cross most mushroomers’ radar screens unless they are truly desperate to find and identify something fungal when mushrooms can’t be found.”)
On the bus ride back from the park to the Staten Island Ferry, Gary estimated that the group had found about 70 fungal taxa.
