Love your site! thanks for putting this up. quick question for you: your taxonomy does not include the genus clitocybe? aren't there tons of those here in Arizona?

Subject:Great Site!

I have been hunting mushrooms on the peaks for a few years now and you site was instrumental in getting me comfortable identifying mushrooms. I hunted the Fab Four for a couple years and am now branching out from there. This year has been awesome already and I have now positively identified a bunch more mushrooms that are edible.

Many thanks, Rudy

Hi Erik,

Just perused your website…..Great Job!
We own a home in Heber….I understand Morels have been found in this area….lots of burn areas.
I would appreciate any knowledge you have on this subject , since you said it was one of your early “loves”.
I lived at 10,000 feet in Colorado and first learned what to collect from a wonderful French Chef when I lived in Aspen.
His favorite was Boletus Edulis followed by Shaggy Manes. When I moved to Crested Butte I learned the secrets of Chanterelles
From an old Croatian coal miner….they taught me well….I have found these and many more in abundance all over the state.
I have yet to find any Morels….can you help me?

Subject:Az mushrooming

Hi Eric,
Great site, thanks. I just joined the Az Mushroom Club this year and was hoping for spring rains so the club would hold a foray for morels. No luck yet. Meanwhile I've been exploring our riparian areas in the Verde Valley (roughly 3200' elevation) and have found oyster mushrooms last fall and late winter and shaggy manes and torqs in the last 3 weeks or so. The torqs are especially delicious. I'm hoping to find more. According to Arora shaggy manes and torgs are frequently found together in disturbed areas along pathways, trails, roads etc.? Have you found them and if so is that your experience here in Az--eg. that where there is one there is the other? Also, last week I found a rather desiccated mushroom which I think may be the lichen agaric--at 7200'at the base of an Az cypress in/with lichen. Have you encountered this species in Az? I don't find it listed in the Arizona Mycota Project. I can't find alot of information about it or its mycosymbiont Botrydina vulgaris in guide books or online but the white mycelium at the base of this specimen was distinctive. I have photos and field notes on all of these if there's any interest.

Subject:giant shaggy manes

Every fall we have a variety of mushrooms here, but mostly shaggy mane of normal size. We moved here to AZ (south of town of Maricopa, in little mountains by I-8) from the NE of WA state and northern Idaho, so were used to gathering beautiful chantrelle mushrooms from the Priest Lake area, along with Morels and the Shaggy Manes all around both areas. At any rate, we have found a 2 foot tall, huge version of what looks like a shaggy mane, it looks like an alien thing! Took a photo if anyone is interested.

I happened upon some Podaxis mushrooms (I think) as I was strolling down a gravel road in Topock Marsh. Your website helped me identify them. A recent rain 10 days ago must have gotten them going.

Subject:Mushrooms around Prescott

Hi Erik,

Just getting into this hobby and finding it quite absorbing. I went for my first foray with Dr. Leathers and the mushroom club a few weeks ago and really enjoyed myself. Got some tasty king boletes and lobster mushrooms that have long since been eaten, and looking forward to an El Niño winter with a large crop of morels in the spring.

I found your web page to be a very good introduction to the fungal flora of the state. I'm sure lots of people just have no idea how many mushrooms are to be found in Arizona.

I grew up in the mountains above Prescott at about 6500' among the Ponderosa pines, and I shudder to think how many B. barrowsii we must have used for placekicking practice over the years. Have you been up in the hills there at all? There's quite a lot of terrain from 6000-8000 feet in the Bradshaw mountains, with Ponderosas, aspen, Douglas fir and spruce on the highest peaks, and I wonder if it would be a worthwhile location for a club foray someday. One problem I can think of is that the terrain is more rugged than the flat ground on the Rim and in the White Mountains. Interested in your opinion. See you at the next club outing.

Subject:Great website. Thanks for sharing.

Went rock climbing in Flagstaff near Snowball (August 2012) and the hike into the woods turned into a mushroom treasure hunt. Didn't pick anything, but took some pictures. Your website was quite informative and detailed. Thanks for sharing your passion and knowledge.

I have been doing a project on Mushroom Hunting in AZ for a class at NAU!! I found your website incredibly helpful and I may use it in the Summer when I have some time to go to the Peaks and look for mushrooms myself. Feel free to e-mail me! Thanks for making this website. It's just what I needed! :)

Hi Eric,

Was great sharing a wonderful dinner with you guys. Now my daughter has the ultimate website to help her on her next mushroom project. Very cool.

A guy I work with told me that DCR was getting updated (how bizarre!), and I found your site. Hope you are doing well!
