Hydnellum peckii, the "Bleeding Tooth Fungus".
Picture by @randyhagmann.
"Although the fruit bodies of H. peckii have been described as resembling 'Danish pastry topped with strawberry jam', and Hydnellum species in general are not known to be poisonous, they are inedible due to their extremely bitter taste.
The fruit bodies typically have a funnel-shaped cap with a white edge, although the shape can be highly variable. Young, moist fruit bodies can 'bleed' bright red guttation droplets that contains a pigment known to have anticoagulant properties similar to heparin."
Support (OPS) Oregon Psilocybin Society and the #psi2020 Campaign by coming out to this fascinating movie!
If you live in the Portland, Oregon area, Matinee premier of Magic Medicine debuts this Sunday February 24th at 2:00pm at Hollywood Theatre! Early bird tickets are sold out and regular tiered tickets are going FAST! Visit hollywoodtheatre.org
The film features Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris, Head of the Psychedelic Research Group at the Imperial College of London (and keynote at the March 3rd OPS fundraising benefit at the Portland Art Museum). The film provides an intimate look into London's first medical trial to give psilocybin, the psychoactive ingredient in magic mushrooms, to a group of volunteers suffering from clinical depression.

Whoop I’m taking bids on this really nifty mushroom pendant that I made. Bids start at $8 with bid increments of $2 or more to participate. I’ve been seeing more of these “ends when I call it” auctions floating around, and I’d like to give that a shot. I’ll cover closing fees, buyer covers shipping. This auction is cross posted to Facebook also. Thanks for checking out my #arts#auction#psychedelic#mycology#forsale#handcrafted#glassforsale

I pulled an oblique trying to capture this land coral (marginally better shot than the previous, now archived, post). 🤦🏻♀️👵🏼🤹🏻♀️ possibly #clavulina or #clavulinopsis sp. .
Baby king oysters enjoying the new AC unit and Humidifier we just installed. Now that our fruiting chamber is dialed in, these fickle boys should be pretty happy. We’ll have a super limited amount this Monday at @audubonmarket (But more than plenty of the other varieties)🍄🙃 #orlandomushrooms
Jelly fungus! I stumbled upon this about ten days ago during a couple of days of overcast wet weather. From what I can tell this is probably Tremella sp. but haven’t read enough to confidently ID it (although Tremella mesenterica seems a likely candidate). More information is encouraged and welcomed if you have anything to add. Image 1-5: Bright orange fruiting bodies on 2.11.19. Image 6-9: Same fruiting bodies on 2.20.19 (with better lighting) and additional fruiting bodies of other species on the same log.
Here’s a mystery: what is this?
The substrate is hardwood; it was collected in the Boston Harbor Islands. Spores are 6-8 x 1-2 um, very pale brown, 8 spores per ascus, asci 30-40 um long, short-stipulate with a faint in-amyloid (IKI-) apical ring.
