We did not expect to see so many mushrooms considering the lack of rain prior to the foray. There was a certain amusing Agaricus that was especially phallic shaped, even for a mushroom. The total number of individual mushrooms found is unknown. The total number of different types of mushroom was approximately 20 types. The following specimens were found: Leccinum insigne/boreale, Hericium ramosum, Hydnum, Polyporus badius, Russula fragilis/ nigricans/subfoetans, Pluteus cerivinus/pellitus/patricius/leoninus/tomentosulus, Agaricus haemarroidarius/xanthodermus, Inocybe, Mycena, Coprinellus, Myxophalia, Amanita fulva, Ramaria abetina, and a variety of little brown mushrooms.
