I haven't had much practice with identifying fungi.  I was only able to identify one of them and I'm only about 75% sure about it.  So I will leave out the names of them.  These are the weirdest (and coolest) ones I found.


  1. Wow, they look like coral! Those are incredible. Thanks for showing the shrooms!!! You can show shrooms all you like, as far as I'm concerned. They're so beautiful and weird.

    Any of these stink? Just curious.

  2. Would you believe I forgot to smell them? I almost always forget to smell stuff when I'm out in the woods. My sinuses are so sensitive that its my instinct to avoid smelling stuff. But when I was looking at my mushroom field guide, smell was one of the identifying features so I must remember to smell them! The last one, the "coral" looking one without color, I think it is Ramaria sanguinea and it said that it had no smell and a bitter taste.

    I promise to smell them all next time. :)

  3. Yes, please sniff things for me! But don't endanger your sinus cavities!
