mycologia (part 1)

The rainy Pacific Northwest provides perfect growing conditions for funghi. Here are a few intriguing examples I saw in the forest around Forks.

Some, perhaps, are edible while others are definitely not. I wouldn’t, given my current state of knowledge, risk eating any of these. Please feel free to correct any error of identification or contribute any other information with a comment.

A classic fairytale scene. A fine example of Fly Amanita (Amanita muscaria)

Chicken-of-the-woods (Laetiporus sulphureus).
