Mushrooms Around Vancouver
Nice to look at, Difficult to Identify
After a white water rafting trip down the Nahatlach river we decided to go
for hike. I was surprised to see the variety of mushrooms growing along
the trail. I didn't have my camera (after damaging it in the Merrit
trip) so Andrea Mark and I took pictures using Mark's camera. We found
some pretty good mushrooms - Amanita muscaria (Fly agaric) and Lycoperdon
perlatum (Gem-studded Puffball).
Electronic Arts Building, Burnaby
A few weeks later (September 4th, 2001) I noticed a large white object growing
in the grass field outside my window at work. Turns out what I saw
was a large mushroom - Clitocybe gigantea (Giant Clitocybe). I brought
my camera down and took some pictures:
It turns out mushrooms are hard to identify. I've tried to identify
most of these mushrooms but my three books doesn't isolate these species.
UBC Demonstration Forest
Late in the hiking season (November 17th, 2001) we went for an afternoon hike
at the UBC demonstration forest. With my new mushrooms sensing eyes,
I noticed a few more samples of Fungus.

Nice photos. Fungi after "It turns out mushrooms are hard to identify. I've tried to identify most of these" look like Inocybe sororia, Hebeloma sp., Hohenbuehelia petaloides, three shots of Laccaria sp. After those perhaps Flammulina velutipes, Trametes sp. and Stereum sp.
