I don`t have any particular interest, scientific or other, in mushrooms, but some of them are very photogenic. They come with the rains in May and June in the Tisey reserve. On a short walk throught the woods it is easy to find a half dozen or so varieties on a short walk. Habitat is tropical oak forest at about 1300 meters, between Rancho don Luis and the Mirador. Plant was about 3.5 inches in diameter.
