Leratiomyces ceres aka “Chip Cherries”

Just a sample of the 20 pack of vintage mushroom stickers available on my online shop. Each pack has a unique assortment of different colorful mushroom species. 

Aleuria aurantia “Orange Peel Fungus” from the Santa Cruz Fungus Fair. I’ve never seen this growing in the wild but I do frequently see discarded orange peels

Just a sample of the 20 pack of vintage mushroom stickers available on my online shop.  Each pack has a unique assortment of different colorful mushroom species. 

Found these yesterday. They’re commonly called Chip Cherries because they look like little cherries growing in their usual habitat…wood chips! The scientific name is Leratiomyces ceres

Cortinarius sp. can be identified by their rusty-brown spores and the presence of a cortina (a cob-web-like partial veil; it can can stretch or fall apart as the mushroom matures so you may only see remnants on the stem as in the mushroom pictured above)
