A Mystery Mushroom

 I just had to go on a hike and ended up returning to the site of the the mystery mushrooms I found the end of January and recently blogged.

The picture shows that these are shelf mushrooms and that they do curl upward as they age.

These few had just started curling.

They were scattered along a log approximately 9-10 feet long.

The top surfaces looked slightly velvety.

I plan to study the few mushroom books, hoping to identify them this time.

No luck.

  1. I wonder if they’re birch mazegills (Lenzites betulina.) They sometimes curl up like that and look a lot like turkey tail fungi.
