Talbot Trail, Northborough MA
This spot has mainly maples growing.
Some specie of fungus is decimating the trees. The dead limbs and young
trees are littering the forest floor. The area is moist and should have
other mushrooms growing here but I do not see any so far. It seems to me
to be a good spot to find Scarlet Cups and Devil's Urns.
I found Witches' Butter ( Tremella
mesenterica) growing on a 3" diameter maple. The largest clump is about 1"
Underside of Witches' Butter
A nice colony of Orange Jelly ( Dacrymyces
palmatus). About 1.5" wide.
