Corralitas Drive: Backyard Fungus

Photo: Diane Edwardson, December 3, 2012.  Mushrooms were sprouting throughout the hood, including these delicate mushrooms in my backyard.  Their caps were no larger than a quarter.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)
Disclaimer: The Corralitas Red Car Property Blog prefers to quote reliable sources, such as CalFlora and California Poison Control, on the issue of toxicity. MykoWeb is the resource everyone seems to refer to for mushrooms. The Los Angeles Mycological Society has a recommended reading list.
We often get email suggesting some plants are edible. If you are eating your way through the Red Car Property, we DO NOT recommend you eat any plant you find in the Red Car Property neighborhood without first doing your own research.
