Funnel Capped Mushroom? Funnel Capped Mushroom?
I found this pale peach mushroom in interior Alaska amongst birch trees in semi shady conditions growing through dead leaves in late July. Cap is somewhat funnel shaped and curls under at edges and covers gills in young, but opens on maturity. Shaft is thick and smooth. They are alone or in small groups less than five. Do you know what it is and whether or not it is edible? They are prolific in my yard.

Identify fungus on stem of elderberry? Identify fungus on stem of elderberry?
I have a strange pale orange fungus(?) growing on the stems of my all my elderberry.
It starts growing where a leaflet branches off of a stem, and then goes off on its own - sort of long/cylindrical/free-form.
The largest is about the size/diameter/shape of a thumb.
Surface is smooth, pocked with tiny orange circles, background is actually very light pale green, but overall appearance of the color is

like orange sherbet.
If you snap them, they are crisp. Pale green/juicy inside, like a... green apple or something.
I have photos, but not sure how to attach.

Help. Unidentified fungus in chicken coop.
Help. Can someone please identify this fungus? I found it growing under my chickens lay box. Soaked it in vinegar and when I returned to the coop, it was gone. Think my chickens ate it. Is it dangerous? Are the eggs now dangerous? It had a velvet look to it, was black and flowered out/up. From the middle protruded a long white ribbon which was much longer than the black base. I have a picture but don't know how to upload it here. I am concerned.

I don't know, but there are people discussing this here: forums.gardenweb.com forums load north msg0819312914442.html Perhaps trying something they mentioned might work?
There is really no safe way to get rid of the fungus, without hurting the soil for a few years. Stinkhorns aren't harmful, and they only last for a few days usually.

Appears to be a white growth about the size of a softball about chest high on a ponderosa pine tree. The outside of the growth is smooth (no tentacles) and 'touchable' - feels like a marshmallow. The tree appears healthy otherwise, I assume it's a fungus of some type - any ideas?

greenhouse fungus? greenhouse fungus?
Louise Miller
In our new greenhouse we have a mold(?) that begins looking and feeling rather like tar, then grows root like things that look like the raffia that one uses to wrap gifts. It begins in the dirt or side of the pot and spreads to the leaves of plants. I thought it might have come in on the only pot that wasn't purchased new. It is spreading all over the greenhouse but seems to jump around without any kind of pattern. It has shown up in dirt without any plants planted. I've removed pots, dirt and affected plants, cleaned small areas of pots or planters of the "tar" with chlorox wipes and then watered with soapy water. That seems to solve the problem until it pops up again someplace else. Any ideas? Thanks

What is this brown ball with orange long looking pimentos growing out of it?
I'm outside everyday birdwatching in my backyard. I've never noticed these dark balls hanging from the tree with jell like tinnacles that are orange. I don't know if they have grown there or attached themselves there. I would of noticed them before in the backyard. There was nothing orange in that tree before. The tinnacles are like long pimentos in a jar around the balls. We had bad weather today. Blew down trees, and etc. It was after the storm I noticed the two balls in the tree in the back yard. Again, I look at that tree everyday for hummingbirds and other birds, and I would of noticed them. There was one these balls on the ground. I got two sticks and tried to pick it up, and the orange tinnacles tore like pimentos in a jar. Same type consistancy. The tinnacles came out spaced evenly all around the ball, with same length tinnacles. Is this something that blew out of the bad weather or a fugus that put out the orange pimento looking tinnacles after the rain? I'm perplexed. They are scary looking. I don't live near the ocean, but it looks as if it came from inside the ocean. I have photos, but do not know how to post them on this site. If anyone can help me figure out what these things are, please do so. They are strange looking to say the least. Thanks, Sandy

My research pulls up cedar-apple rust. The photo looks the same as what was on the tree. The tinnacles didn't last long with color. I didn't get a close look to see if they fell off, but from a distant view I didn't see the orange anymore the second day.
Is is something like this?
  round orange/not sure if its a fungus round orange/not sure if its a fungus
round orange/not sure if its a fungus
its orange in color and is round in shape, came up after some heavy rains, rubbery to the touch and when the pod/fungus is popped it has thick orange liquid inside,.

It could be many things from, fungus to slime mold to a parasite. Could you upload some pictures of it? I will try my best :)

Underground mushrooms Underground mushrooms
When harvesting onions in our garden we found some mushrooms underground they were about 1" in diameter and white. There were many of them and we dig them all out but didn't get a picture of them. We live in northern new jersey. Any ideas?
Answer This Question

I'm very much the novice, but could they possibly be truffles? I've only seen truffles once, but the ones I think I saw were somewhat like you describe.
Yes, they were small and round like balls.
Were they shaped like balls?
They were white and round about 1\" in diameter. No gills. There were about 80 of them.
Were they round? did they have gills? how many of them were there?
