Recent Mushrooms - October 2013

Elm Oyster - Hypsizygus ulmarius

Pictured here as you are likely to encounter it, high up in a tree.  The species name "ulmarius" refers to the fact that Elm trees re one of its hosts.  I think I've only found it on Box Elder trees. 

Orange Mock Oyster - Phyllotopsis nidulans

 Carbon Balls - Daldinia concentrica

Stinkhorn - Phallus sp.

This is the "egg" stage of the stinkhorn before it fully develops and assumes the shape that the genus is named for.

Honey Mushroom - Armillaria sp.

Panaeolus sp.?
