As I was looking around the North Quabbin woods this past Saturday I saw this mushroom standing out in the darkness.
This is a Crown-tipped Coral-Artomyces pyxidatus.
Sometimes walking our dog results in finding something as well, in this case right in our lawn.
Amethyst Deceiver-Laccaria amethystina. These are relatively small mushrooms that are edible although I read that sometimes they collect arsenic from the ground. I’ll pass.
