The Mysterious Forest

Years ago, before I started paying attention to mushrooms, the forest was something I quickly walked through on my way to a trout stream. When you slow down and start to look carefully, though, you can find the strangest things growing in the woods. IMG_2014These mushrooms look like something you might see under the sea. Comparing to photos and descriptions in my field guides and online, I’d say these are very likely Clavulinopsis fusiformis, the Spindle-Shaped Coral.  If so, these are in fact edible, but very bitter, making them unpalatable.

Have your say...
