A Fantasyland of Fungi: By Kathleen Scavone

Recent rain showers have created conditions that are perfect for mushrooms and fungi in which to thrive. Now, a fantasyland of decomposers in all shapes and sizes is appearing as though by magic, on rotted tree limbs, under leaf litter, and along creek sides. A wide variety of mushrooms abound in Lake County, visible in many alien-appearing forms from lowly slime to fan-like showy bracket fungi. According to the Bay area Mycological Society where the art and science of mushrooms is studied there is even such a thing as a glow-in-the-dark Jack-O-Lantern mushroom which thrive in Northern California. Known as Omphalotus olivascens, the Jack-O-Lantern mushroom’s bioluminescent properties provides its own light!
