Underwoodia columnaris. This is a first sighting of this unusual fungi for all members of the club. The woods at Brushy Creek State Park were full of these weird looking things.
Underwoodia columnaris spore, 400X, 0 - 1 is 24 micron
Xerula sp. The cap and stem were covered with a thick layer of slime.
This mushroom is called the haymaker because it shows up about the time that farmer cut the first crop of hay.
Volvariella sp. Note the volva (cup) at the base of the stem. These tiny mushrooms were found in the grass in a parking lot.
