The adventuresome life of a Great Pyrenees/Newfoundland dog in Northwestern Ontario

Fungal Friday 1

Fungi we’ve found in the woods this week. If you can help us identify them, please do!

 

This looks like a False Morel of the Gyromitra variety, but it is hollow. Elizabeth decided not to bring them home for supper.

These looked like they were on a hike up an old, mossy stump.

  1. the first one looks like an early morel (gyromitra esculenta), think it’s toxic. I wouldn’t bring it home, probaly it’s eatable only once :o) I have no clue about the second one, but I’m not sure if that guy would make a good supper :o)

  2. Woah! Whee don’t know much about fungi so whee can’t help you on the naming front but don’t they look strange? Rather prehistoric really…

    • I bet guinea pigs in the wild would eat the good ones. We notice tiny toothmarks on some, and the squirrels like to hang others in the trees to dry.

    Don’t know anything at all about fungi, apart from liking to eat them. Thanks!

  4. How interesting, will you let us know what they are when you do?!
