I was talking to a co-worker this morning and discussed the recent pop up of mushrooms. Not only mushrooms but weird looking ones.

There's no shortage of weird mushrooms in Minnesota this year, as this video attests:

You've got a couple types of waxy caps in there.. the bright yellow ones are a variant of the Amanita muscaria (we also get them in orange)...those little ones that look like joints sticking out of the ground are a type of coral mushroom... the one at 45 sec. that looks like a brown bullseye is a Tiger's Eye... a bunch of indistinguishable LBM (little brown mushrooms), a peziza or two--those are the cup like ones... those orange ones with the white dusting that looks like sugar--that's a lobster (yum!)... the little white coral is a crown-tipped coral...
