Vermilion Waxcap Hygrocybe miniata

Observer

Description

Follow-up - It seems like there are many small, bright orange waxy caps that are called by this name. I am not sure if I can sort it out or if it can be sorted out. See the note at the bottom about the reference.


Many small bright orange mushrooms in an area about 6’ x6’. There was rotting hardwoods limbs, logs, pine straw and some moss. Not all of the mushrooms were near moss.

Both cap and gills were deep orange, slightly pink. The gills are moderately spaced with a short gill between out at the edge of the cap. The gills run down the stem but do not protrude below the cap when viewed from the side.

The base of the stipe is lighter right as it enters the soil. The stipe is rooted. There were no annuli or volvae.

I am making a spore print.

Reference – Texas Mushrooms: A Handbook lists this as Hygrophorus miniatus. When I checked Hygrophorus miniatus in MycoBank it listed Hygrocybe miniata as Synonymous

Description

I found this yellow flower along with several others in an area in the forest surrounded by ferns. I had trouble deciding on whether it was a partridge pea or two-leaved senna, but after looking closely and finding the brown part in the center of the flower, it looks as if it is a partridge pea.

Description

Canada Goose found throughout the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge. Many of the Goose there are comfortable being surrounded by people and are often found on the paved trails at the refuge. The geese found in this picture were in the bank of the Nisqually River feeding on what may have been insects or more likely some sort of plant in the river bank due to being grazers.
