The entrance to F. W. Kent Part in Johnson County, Ia.
It was cold but sunny before we started the foray. A beautiful fall day.
More of the foray participants.
There were many Scleroderma cepa (Smooth Earthball) under the Pines along the park road.
Dry before they could mature.
An very old and nasty Oyster Mushroom.
Some old Lycoperdon perlatum covering a log in several patches.
A lone Laccaria ochropurpurea.
PSMC President Glen runs the annual meeting.
Damian examines the table of fungus collected at the foray while others prepare for the potluck. A surprising number of species for the dry conditions.
Phlebia tremellosa, a common fall fungus.
Pheasant back, Poplyporus squamosus.
Common Turkey Tail.
Some fresh Pollyporus badius.
Not bad for the extremely dry conditions. There were even some fresh Honey Mushrooms.
