Mushroom Log - Late August 2017

All the mushrooms featured in this post were found in white pine stands at Afton State Park.

Lactarius indigo
I think all mushrooms are pretty cool, even LBMs.  But a big blue mushrooms is really cool!

Laccaria sp.
 Possibly L. laccata or similar species, of which there are a few.

Inocybe sp.

Possibly I. geophylla.

The two species pictured just above were everywhere in one patch of white pines.  I think it's interesting how both species are so highly variable in appearance, especially as they dry out and more or less blend together to the casual observer.

Trichloma sp.
 Possibly T. myomyces based on it's overall appearance, small size, and habitat.
