This mushroom was farther in the woods than our other mushroom (the California Fungi) and it was in a light sunny area.
On a cold November day, Mr. P’s class went outside to look for fungi. We found our first fungi, ( The California Fungi) and now we have to look for more. As we head deeper in the woods, we come upon a yellow and white mushroom. This mushroom was under trees so it was a bit dark and damp. The mushroom had attached gills and they were white. Our mushroom that we found was not growing off of other mushrooms. It was by itself. It was about 2.5 cm tall. The mushroom is dark yellow on the inside and white on the rims. We think this mushroom is Genus Lactarius. http://tolweb.org/tree/ http://www.wikipedia.org/ http://www.mushroomexpert.com/major_grou...
