Additional Comments: We found about 60 species as listed above. Our small foray group had an excellent three hours on the south valley trail. Species identification was more effective since Martin Osis joined our party – a big thanks, Martin! A post foray meal was shared; a delicious Beef & Mushroom stew (Agaricus, Hericium and Lactarius “d”, and assorted russula) prepared by Freddie Bromling. No leftovers were observed.
