confusaque fungi

I don’t have the common or Latin names for the fungi shared below, so I trusted “Google Translate” with the Latin version of “assorted fungi,” and there it is, confusaque fungi….

Fungi from trail to Bells Canyon Upper Reservoir 1

This is only a handful of the images of fungi that I’ve made since Spring of this year.

Fungi from trail to Bells Canyon Upper Reservoir 2

They represent my forays into the canyons of the Wasatch Mountains and were found near the trails leading to places like –

Copa de Oro fungi from trail to Mt Aire

Bells Canyon Upper Reservoir, White Pine Lake, Mt Aire…

log fungi from Spruce's Campground

and Days Fork, the trail-head, of which, is located in the Spruces Campground, about eight or nine miles up into Big Cottonwood Canyon.

And if you’re interested, Mt Aire is in Millcreek Canyon, White Pine Lake is in Little Cottonwood Canyon…

toadstool fungi from Spruce's Campground

and Bells Canyon Upper Reservoir is located in…yep, Bells Canyon, just south of Little Cottonwood Canyon.

  1. I love ’em! I’ll bet NH Garden Solutions will be able to identify most of them!

  3. The second from the last looks like a Horseshoe crab! Once again nature repeats itself. Beautiful photos!

    • It does seem to do that, doesn’t it, Bonnie? Thank you. πŸ™‚

  4. That third one down is a great example of an orange cup fungus (Caloscypha fulgens)! I’ve never seen one in the woods. After that are bracket fungi, possibly young Trametes pubescens, but I’m not sure. That big brown one in the 6th shot looks like a bolete, but again I’m not sure of the species. It most likely had pores instead of gills on the underside of the cap.
    The cup fungi are a great find-we don’t see many of them around here, for some reason.

    • Thank you for the suggestions, Allen…I might have guessed the orange ones were some type of “cup fungus.” I thought I might have seen something about them at your place, but maybe not.

    • Yes, they are, Bente. πŸ™‚

  6. Wow… now all you have to do is figure out which ones are edible. Yum! πŸ™‚

    • Hmm…I’ll stay away from that part of it, Gunta…will likely only trust the grocery store for the edible ones. πŸ™‚

  13. I love mushrooms when they surprise me … and they always do, don’t they! There is something mysterious and magic about them. These are wonderful photographs of them too. Little Cottonwood is my canyon, you know…

    • I hadn’t thought of that, George, but yes, they usually do surprise us…they are just suddenly there. Thank you for your kind words, my friend…and yes, I know that you love Little Cottonwood Canyon…and I think that’s wonderful. πŸ™‚
