I collected all of these squishy specimens on a single walk through the Elder Cedar trail and I’m going to attempt to figure out what all of them are! Here are the pictures:
This mushroom has the really neat looking pore underside (rather than gills), but I’m not sure what it is beyond knowing it is in the bolete family. Possibly it is a suillus caerulescens, though I didn’t notice any blue or clay red bruising when I handled it.
Hygrocybe miniata AKA the vermillion waxcap. Pretty sure about this one as there don’t seem to be any lookalikes.
It’s hard to tell, but maybe this one is also a vermillion waxcap, but just older and bigger and less bright?
Possibly an Amanita constricta, which is part of the a. vaginata family.
^ At first I thought these were Lepiota magnispora but on further flipping through my mushroom book I think they might actually be stropharia ambigua.
And here are some more photos that I haven’t yet identified. As I figure them out I’ll update this post, but for now just look at all the pretty specimens!
