Desert Shaggy Mane (Podaxis pistillaris) mushroom in the desert!

Julie jokes that I can find mushrooms anywhere - maybe so!

Here is a "<b>Desert Shaggy Mane</b>" (<i>Podaxis pistillaris</i>) mushroom fruiting in the Joshua Tree desert last week. It looks like a gilled mushroom that has failed to open properly. The cap will remain closed to protect the developing spores from moisture loss. It's said to be edible when very young. (Joshua Tree National Park, 1 April 2010)

    MYKOLOGOS is a group site for photos of mushrooms, fungi, molds, lichens, slime molds, bacterial mats, algae - all those non-flowering plants that don`t follow the usual rules. I figure ferns are marginal unless they show their sporangia.
