Van Cortlandt Park – 7/14/2019

Van Cortlandt NYMS walk
NYMS Walk, Van Cortlandt Park, 7.14.19
A beautiful day in Van Cortlandt Park. By a marvelous twist of fate we met up with another group of mushroom hunters led by Olga Tzogas (of Smugtown Mushrooms in Rochester)! We also had the good fortune to run into Christian Liriano and Alex Byrne of the Van Cortlandt Park Alliance. Not a lot of mycorrhizal activity: no Amanitas, only a couple of Lactarii, Inocybes, Russulas, and Boletes. . . 80 species collected, including a new myxomycete for NYC.
