Mushrooms in a Fairy Ring

I found a group of mushrooms this morning in a spruce forest that were growing in a large fairy ring. You can see part of the arc of the ring in the lower photo above. I thought perhaps it was a ring of Lepista irina, a tasty edible that fruits in fairy rings in woods. However, the gill attachment isn’t the same as photos of L. irina in my field guide, and also, at the best of times, I have no confidence in my ability to identify this mushroom with certainty. So…whatever that ring of mushrooms is, it’s still there in the woods for the next mushroom hound to figure out. I think in this game it’s good to know your limitations.

Have your say...
