I believe this is a Stubby Dendronotus. Three of us separately came to the same conclusion on the species but this does not mean it is right. If anyone thinks differently I would appreciate your input. It was found on the side of a boat dock at night and is roughly 2-2.5 cm in length.
Giant, orange, gilled mushroom with dark orange scales on the cap. Cap diameter is 18 centimeters and the stipe is 10 centimeters long. Taste and smell are very mild and earthy. Flesh is light orange and gills are orange brown. Cap is somewhat sticky and wet.
Cap dia: 71mm, total length: 76mm, length of stipe: 60mm, cap height at center: 15mm This chocolate brown gilled mushroom has a cream colored stipe and cap. It has an iteresting white cap where the white extends off the cap like a tablecloth. Taste is mild and clean. Found on the side of a path growing among grass. Agaricus campestris TRE_F44
What is this?
Dark green leaves with white strips down the middle
Small orange mushrooms
Appears to be Western red cedar, but I heard that it was actually yellow cedar, not sure.
Not sure what kind of mushroom it is. Found near Mount Rainier
A black tailed deer, or mule deer.
I took photos of a lot of mushrooms during a trip to Mount Rainier. These are the ones I cannot identify. Any help would be immensely appreciated!
I changed the id after hearing from a reliable source (Susan) that they do not have Black-throated Greens. The Townsend's is very similar and difficult to distinguish with this view.
A bright pink, puss filled fungi that is no bigger than .25 of an inch. When older, they turn chocolate brown and are solid brown inside as well. Growimg on well rooten, moist log. Taste is slighly acidic.
A 3 foot tall forb. It has large, fuzzy, oblong leaves, margins entire, but covered in hairs. Leaves grow up the stem somewhat before folding outward, almost like the petals of some flowers. Leaves appear to be arranged alternately. This plant is an angiosperm.
Habitat: Growing in partial shade of black cottonwood, this forb is surrounded by invasive Himalayan blackberry and a thatch of dead vines.
Weather: Drizzly, around 65F, with an overcast sky.
A pretty forb that anyone in the Pacific Northwest should be aware of. It may look like an innocent mint plant, but what its friendly exterior hides is a malicious heart! Under its dainty, pinnately veined, ovate leaves with serrate margins hides its poison daggers in the form of tiny hairlike needles. Only touching the undersides of its leaves and stem hurts (I tested it to be sure). When the plant is mature it sends out sprays of flowers that are comparable to an ocean spray in arrangement. They turn gray brown and hang from the stems of the plants until the plants die back completely for the year. This plant is an angiosperm.
Habitat: Growing in partial shade on the edge of a Himalayan blackberry thicket and a few large black cottonwoods.
Weather: Drizzly, 65F, overcast sky.
A beautiful, yet sadly, non-native tree growing around the lake at Fort Steilacoom Park. A large, narrow tree with alternate, pinnately veined, deltoid shaped leaves with serrate margins. Bark is a cool brown and fairly uniform with narrow furrows. Young twigs are and petioles of leaves are red. Twigs turn a light green then cool brown with age. Petioles stay at the light green stage when mature.This plant is an angiosperm.
The Pacific Northwest nemesis for the ages! Although it appears to be a stunning shrub that grows to be 12 feet or more, with its bright green twigs and very small, lanceolate to oblong either pinnately compound or simple leaves with entire margins and dark pea pods and bright yellow flowers (not many anymore, but still a few to be found), it is a truly viscous shrub that invades anywhere it can in Western Washington and displaces native species. Its diabolical plan to take over the Pacific Northwest almost complete, with government funded natural resource programs as well as private landowners and volunteers all waging an unstoppable war against this tyrant of a shrub.This plant is an angiosperm.
Habitat: Any disturbed area with full sun. Never grows in shade. Was growing in a large group of its own species and no others.
Weather: Drizzly, 65F, overcast sky.
White mushrooms with fine gills. Largest caps are 2 inches in diameter and 3.5 inches tall. Taste is mild and earthy, not bad.
Large crust like mold that is 8 inches across and 7 inches deep. Interior of fungus is same color as exterior and the fungus is crumbly.
Dark gray capped, interior gilled mushrooms, possibly not mature. Caps are 1 inch in diameter and the white stipes are just over 1 inch and stain purple when bruised. Gills are yellow. Growing om a pile of leaves and conifer needles. Taste is strongly bitter and sour. (Not my day for tasting)
Dark gray, thin capped mushroom with bright white stipe. Stipe is hairy and very long (4 inches or so on larger ones). Caps are 2 inches or more in diameter, but rolled up to a 1 inch diameter. Taste is very mild and the cap texture is papery and stringy.
Medium sized orange mushroom that darkens to a burnt orange in the center. Largest cap diameter is 4 inches, smallest is 1.5 inches. Gills do not seem crowded. Caps are slimy. Stipe is even, and longer than cap diameter in the smaller mushrooms. Taste is extremely bitter and leaves a long lasting aftertaste (hurts feelings to taste it)
