Name That Shroom or A Fungi ID (Photos) and a Freebie

Two months ago I shot these photos of mushrooms in Ada Okinawa, Japan.
Just trying to get caught up here so, I decided to research shrooms a bit.  Hah !

There must be more types of mushrooms than types of people on this planet.  I give up.

There are plenty of mushroom ID sites online but, they want you to email them a photo and probably sign up, create a password, account, profile and all that stuff.  PHBtttt.  Nope !

Mushrooms, in the wild, can kill you if you eat them and you grabbed the wrong kind.

People even eat or smoke mushrooms thinking they're just putting good hallucinogens in their bodies.

Well, I wasn't planning on eating the things, being the non-fungi-eating creature I am.

It'd just be nice if someone could tell me the name of this shroom, or fungi, whatever it is so, I can give it a proper title.

Now, if you or some fungus association can give me an ID, or name for this shroom
I'd be willing to email a file suitable for printing to the first one who names that shroom.

Thataway, I don't need a buncha new accounts, passwords, profiles, and all that jazz and the winner gets to hang some free fungus on their wall!

Those actually look like a type of martial arts throwing discs. Have you been upsetting some people?

Nah, but I've heard some folks found a way to use mushrooms that makes them hallucinate.

There are a type of mushroom that make you hallucinate, all you gotta do is pick and eat em. The golfers were not best pleased when we used to raid hole 12 & 13 for our stash, long time ago now however this may explain a lot of my blog ramblings.

Dang, I almost asked FishHawk if he was smokin the stuff. Never thought people could just eat the things and get high. I enjoy yer blog so, if you start runnin outta ideas, go on back and eat some more!

Alison said...

Lol yes some shrooms you just need to eat to get high. I did it once. It wasn't very fun haha.

Anyways I like your pictures!

RyukyuMike said...

Glad to hear you learned from the experiment. And thank you.

My guess is that this mushroom is a type of the Turkey Tail fungus (trametes versicolor). There are different varieties and colors, but these look like it to me.

RyukyuMike said...

Thanks. Give me awhile to finish my mail. After I do some verification, I may owe you a photo!

RyukyuMike said...

It looks like you correctly ID'd those mushrooms. Now, I have to figure out how to find you so I can email your choice photo.
The Facebook Page for my site would be an easy, secure way to email through once ya hit that LIKE Button.
