Mushroom Log - late August

Agaricus sp.

Parasola auricoma

Sunny Side Up - Bolbitius titubans

Smooth Volvariella - Volvariella speciosa
At first glance these appear to possibly be a species of Amanita, with the cups at the base, the patches on the cap, and the overall clean, white appearance.  But a trip back the next day revealed that they had pink gills; Amanitas typically have white gills.  Plus the location of garden bed at the edge of a parking lot isn't really the norm for most Amanitas, but it is for V. speciosa.

Comb Tooth - Hericium coralloides

Oyster Mushroom - Pleurotus ostreatus
