With as warm and dry the winter has been....I'm still amazed at how many mushrooms and fungi I'm still finding. My first Gymnopolis mushrooms........found in a cow pasture on fallen wood were a great find. Also a great find, two years in a row now, were the large Scarlet Cup fungi, Sarcoscypha coccinea. Normally these are only found in the spring to very early summer in the Mid-west...but I've found these from mid-winter to mid-summer 2 years now. On a foray this past spring, members of my KAW Valley mushroom hunting group found a yellow variety of this fungi growing on Ft.Leavenworth property.
