May 29th, Palisades-Kepler State Park in Linn Co. Iowa

The day started out very cool, but warmed up quickly in the bright sunshine and light winds. We had reports of oyster mushrooms popping everywhere when we set up this foray, but we only found a few trees in one corner of the woods. We had a great turnout, with many people attending their first foray. Even though they were new, they brought plenty of knowledge and enthusiasm. Here are most of the foray participants:

There were lots of Mycena mushroom species, most we could not identify to species, like these:

This Mycena we do know the name. This is Mycena leaiana, the orange Mycena. The cap is normally orange, but most had the orange color washed off by the rain. This photo of the gills show the orange stripe on the edge of the yellow gills.

After the foray, we gathered to examine our finds.
