Chanterelle season is well underway here in Southern Michigan. I am finding Cantharellus phasmatis and Cantharellus cinnabarinus so far.

I am happy to report that 181 collections of Cantharellus were donated to my research project this year that were collected from 24 different states. These collections were made by thirty-two different professional mycologists and citizen scientists. I am extremely grateful for this contribution.

Three new species of Cantharellus were discovered in western Wisconsin growing within 20m of one another. The article is published in the March-April volume of Mycologia, the official peer-reviewed journal of the Mycological Society of America (MSA).

Winter mushroom foray in Hell, Michigan. I organized and lead a group of 11 dedicated individuals through Pinckney State Recreation Area to look for fungi. Despite the snow and ice, over a dozen different species were found including one edible specimen of Flammulina velutipes.
