I was once the person who said “eeewww, a mushroom” when I saw one outside of the supermarket. I understand the foreignness of their forms, but I’ve embraced them and really enjoy walking around, getting some exercise and looking for them.
NEVER EAT A MUSHROOM WITHOUT A POSITIVE IDENTIFICATION FROM AN EXPERIENCED MUSHROOMER WHO STILL HAS ALL THEIR ORIGINAL ORGANS.
I am not an experienced mushroomer. I am beginning to recognize their funky forms and each potential ID is a learning tool. I appreciate any corrections of my info or identifications. Most of the following were found in the Presidio or Golden Gate Park.
Thanks for reading!
