Carquinez Regional, Fungi in Huckleberry

Went to Carquinez Regional Shoreline for the first time last Saturday with Tony and Angie. Nice little park, some beautiful grassland and healthy-looking oaks. I was armed and ready with my new OakMapper iPhone app, but I didn't find any Sudden Oak Death to report! Oh well.

On Sunday I decided re-investigate the fungal situation in Sibley and Huckleberry. While things seemed pretty dry and empty in the upper piney regions of Sibley, where I've seen boletes, candy caps, and elfin saddle in the past, there was definitely some activity as I got lower and wetter. Lots of amanitas, which made me happy, including plenty of death caps.

A welcome sight! These were poking up all over the place in moist patches under the oaks.

Another edible Amanita I have no intention of ever trying. Beautiful though, and they smelled quite nice. Blooming abundantly under one oak.

A supposedly edible Amanita I often find in Huckleberry. I also often find plenty of the closely related Death Caps.
