June Mushrooms of the Month

Welcome to the June installment of Mushrooms of the Month. The warmer weather has finally moved into our region of the States and is unveiling all the beautiful spectrums of color, nature has to offer! Much like the flowers have been blossoming in these past few months, the fungi is starting to do the very same thing now! A rich diversity of colorful species will start to reveal themselves beneath our feet along the trails we walk and trees we will gaze upon–both living and dead. So now is the time to get out in nature and enjoy the rainbow of gorgeous mushrooms that only June may have to offer. Don’t miss it, get out with a friend, family, pet or even plan a mini-foray with us!

  1. FABULOUS! What a beautiful way to start my morning! Featuring spectacular photographs of the “Mushrooms of the Month” is a significant addition to the Newsletter. Kudos to the person who thought of this idea, the photographers and the editor Alan McClelland. Thank You!

  2. These are fantastic shots, I may have to borrow this idea somehow and incorporate it into our myco club’s newsletters or facebook page! Connecticut Valley Mycological Society

  3. I believe that that may be Laetiporus cincinnatus and not sulphureus, as I thought the former formed the rosette as shown while the latter grows as shelves on the side of trees. Great photos, nonetheless.

  5. Jonathan,
    The photo of the sulphur shelf is most likely Laetiporus sulphureus as you can see the yellow coloration which Laetiporus cincinnatus lacks. Both species can grow shelving or as rosettes.
