Description

we saw a huge colony of agrocybe praecox mushrooms outside of benson hall, across stevens way from the botany greenhouse. these mushrooms are rhyzomorphs and have hundreds of thousands of hyphae. they also have partial veils. they were growing in a bed of cone scales from what i believe are cedar of lebanon trees.

when we scratched away the cones to about an inch underneath, there were enormous networks of white mycellium in the soil.

these mushrooms were probably all genetically identical.
