Yesterday morning, I took a walk along a stretch of the Bisphams Mill Creek in the 4-Mile area of the Pines. Weather wise, I've couldn't have picked a better day. A good variety of mushrooms/fungus were present in the area.

Lichen, but it doesn't seem to be the one that I often see with a 3-tier horn type structure.

I believe is Leocarpus fragilis

I met a couple at Franklin Parker last fall who said they were researching mushrooms in the area. They said they had found 750 species already and still counting. Just in FPP alone. How the heck do you know whats good to eat? I asked were there any "magic" ones, that I was interested in some "research" myself :rolleyes:

Not to taint Rooftrees excellent thread, but what the heck. During winter break of 1973, two friends and myself visited a high school buddy who was attending University of Florida. He was renting a broken down old shack off campus. We waited a few minutes on the front step and Bob showed up smiling, with a dirty brown paper bag. Said the guys he bought it from sneak into the farmers cow pasture and pick the mushrooms off the dung. We went inside and over the next few hours he cooked up the mushrooms, threw them away and mixed the boiled water with orange juice and asked us if we wanted a glass of "moon juice". I declined, but my friends did. My friend Tommy was an experienced astral traveler, and he drank 10 glasses, a decision he later regretted. Sorry Rooftree, beautiful shots!

Al; I only found one of the Old Man in the Woods. However, the coral fungi was quite plentiful. I take a guess it is Clavulina cristata (Cockscomb Coral) since it turns dirty white or greyish in ageing. It appeared to be that way. (This is from my mushroom guide)

Picture below is a small coral fungus.

Please forgive my ignorance, but I was always under the impression that the term "shrooms" was reserved for those with hallucinogenic properties. You refer to Old Man with that term.....is it?:)

I'd like to try the psilocybin mushrooms someday (under supervision). I read a lot of good things about those trips and the aftermath.
