These inedible ascomycete fungi look like shallow cups perched on cylindrical, slender stems. The upper (fertile) surface of the cup is smooth and medium to dark grey or grey-brown; the lower surface and the stem are somewhat paler grey and covered in tufts of tiny hairs that give them a granular appearance. They may have the capacity to form mycorrhizal relationships with trees, but also grow as saprobes on very well-decayed wood.

Lehtopikarimörsky kasvaa lehti- ja sekametsissä rehevällä maalla tai hyvin laholla puulla. Maljan sisäpinta eli itiölava on sileä ja tummemman harmaanruskea kuin sienen vaaleampi, karvainen ulkopinta. Jalka on ulkopinnan värinen ja yhtä lailla karvainen. Ei ruokasieni.

A #Helvella sp., a #Humariahemisphaerica, and an itty bitty #inchworm.

These look to be a species of Helvella. (Possibly H. crispa). They are reported to be inedible causing gastrointestinal upset, as they are related to false morels, however I found one source online who mistook them for a morel and said they were good. I wouldn't eat these however. .

Helvella dryophila - Black Elfin Saddle 🍄

This brain-like mushroom is a fairly common species found under oak trees here on the Central Coast of California. It is poisonous if consumed raw. It contains trace amounts of Gyromitrin in it. Gyromitrin is a toxic volatile chemical and to remove it from this species, you must cook this mushroom well done at high heat to make it edible. For me, I don't think it's worth all the effort as there are many delicious edible mushrooms that live in the very same environment. But I do think this species is beautiful and unique and I do enjoy finding them.

Stropharia caerulea

A weird Helvella-ish species from Mt Shasta, CA. Fruiting in a clump below a log. Any ideas? It doesn't readily match any of the species in my normal go-to book for such things, Ascomycete Fungi of North America. It bears some resemblance to Cudonia, but those don't have the distinct saddles. #ascomycetes #helvella? #helvellaceae #elfinsaddle #mushroomroadtrip #mushroomID #mushroomhunting #mycology #micología #hongos #fungi #mushroomsociety #mushroomsofinstagram #allthemushroomhashtags
