Fungi of New Orleans Not very many. First 4 days an entoloma was the only gilled fungus I found. As we had wandered into what can only be described as an unsafe area I did not bother getting the camera out and we walked briskly on. I did photograph this a while later.
Ganoderma carnosumAbout 20 of these all apparently associated with wood chips. Location:- City Park New Orleans 5th March 2001
Phallus............?Possibly ...impudicus. Hundreds of these apparently associated with wood chips. Location:- City Park New Orleans 5th March 2001
Gymnopus luxuriansWood chips again. Location:- City Park New Orleans 5th March 2001 I was in New Orleans from 1st-12th March. There were very few fungi and most of these were growing on wood chips in the City Park. Outside of the park I found just 2 entolomas and 1 bracket. I really expected much more in what is after all a sub tropical climate.
