Anyone know these shrooms?? I spotted them in the yard today. I've been here since July, 1996 and have never seen them before. Looked around the area where I saw them and no others Shrug! I have marked the area so I can keep an eye on them for changes.

Could they be "Dead Man's Fingers"? Or possibly "Earth Tongue" or "Adders Tongue"? I never knew there were so many black fungi until I looked in my reference book...

I agree Need to check on them and see what they are like now...I've had some "issues" and haven't kept up with them.

I just went out and looked...they seem to be exactly as they were when I first saw them and we've had temps down to freezing or close there to Shrug! Shrug!

@gingin Hey Ginger. Do you still have those little black fungi ? They don't look flattened like the velvet earth tongues, adder tongues or deadman's fingers that I have run across. This is an unidentified pic from a mushroom collection project. It is growing in sandy soil in FL.

The reason for asking is that Google is picking up your pictures from here and also June's suggestions for ID.

There is no rush at all. That part is curiosity... I just wondered if you might have gotten an ID.

The concerns I have are that the pictures you posted are being picked up by google and listed as Adder tongue, earth tongue and dead man's fingers...rather than being ID for what they are.

And again, probably not a big deal.

I recently saw similar plants in my front yard. Never saw thern before. I'm very interested to know what they are. I live in The Bahamas by the way.

I never did get a proper ID. Checked and found one bent over under leaves...it seems to have two stems, but only one top Shrug!

@cmsutherla welcome to ATP

What you have is, I think, Helvella lacunosa It resembles a small blob of melted rubber

@gingin Perhaps the stem split? Did the cap expand or show gills?


I am still searching for an ID for you and my own curiosity. I love a challenge Rolling my eyes.

to me it looks like two stems rather then a split and no it has not expanded and I can't say that I see gills, but it is kinda messed up from the cold and rain we've had Shrug!
