Fall mushrooms, Discovery Park

It's mushroom time in Discovery Park. Here are a few sightings. Fred Rhoades kindly helped me with the IDs. Check his site out. He's currently testing the possibilities of 3D photography.

This is candlewick fungus, or Xylaria hypoxylon, a name I will keep in mind if I ever do a nature alphabet book.

A lovely coral mushroom, probably genus Clavulina.

Stropharia ambigua.

This is might be Chlorophyllum olivieri or Chlorophyllum rhacodes. Either way, there's a lot of them in Discovery Park.

Possibly Leratiomyces ceres.

Some kind of Psathyrella, possibly Psathyrella gracilis.
