The Mushroom Log

Beaver Creek Fall Foray Report
By Walt Sturgeon
Beautiful weather throughout the weekend made for pleasant collecting conditions and allowed for sorting and identification of the mushrooms to be done outside.  Over 50 members and visitors attended.  The facility hosting us was the Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center which has a remarkable display of mounted North American wildlife.  All collecting was done in Beaver Creek State Park with the exception of  a Corn Smut (Ustilago maydis) collection which Rich Hill brought from Medina County and a couple of other collections brought by Walt Sturgeon from neighboring sites in Columbiana County. 
August and September were dry but a late September rain and a soaking rain the Wednesday prior to the foray made for good collecting of saprobic and parasitic fungi.  The symbiotic species were scarce.  The edible species collected included sheephead (Grifola frondosa), several slippery jack (Suillus spp.),honey mushroom complex (Armillaria solidipes).  A new OMS foray record and Ohio record for me was Boletellus projectellus. One of the most common species was the unpleasant smelling Clitocybe robusta which is large and white.  Another very common one was Lactarius vinaceorufescens. This acrid tasting species occurs under pine.  It has white latex which when exposed to the air turns bright yellow.  Mushrooms with interesting odors included Pholiota alnicola and Cystoderma amianthinum var. rugosoreticulatum which both smell like sweet corn and Amanita citrina which smells like potatoes.   Species with interesting habitats included Baeospora myosura on pine cones and Cordyceps ophioglossoides on the false truffle Elaphomyces granulatus and Mycena luteopallens on walnut, hickory, or butternut shells.  Suillus pictus (Suillus spraguei) was a county record and an uncommon species in Northern Ohio. 
Walt Sturgeon gave a slide program on edible mushrooms and toxic look-alikes on Saturday afternoon.  He gave another program on Sunday morning on Waxcaps which are mostly brightly colored mushrooms in the genera Hygrocybe and Hygrophorus. This was followed by a review of the collections and an informal round table discussion. 
Lunch on Saturday was a delicious variety of potluck dishes.  Twenty attendees had dinner Saturday night at the East Liverpool Motor Lodge.  Everyone seemed to have a good time. 
Thanks to all who helped lead forays and with clean up and a special thank you to Sharon Greenburg who managed to lead 2 forays, help with clean up and made sure morning snacks and coffee were available as well.  Fantastic! 
Next year we hope to have forays in northern and southern Ohio.  Members should mark the dates as soon as they become available.  Attend forays.  They are what the Ohio Mushroom Society is all about.

Grove Woods MiniForay
By Dave Miller & Pauline Munk.
A sizable group of 16 OMS members met on a cool, but dry, sunny, and bug-free Oct. 5 afternoon for a pretty good haul of a variety of mushrooms. Many of us donned brightly colored tops, provided by Pauline Munk, who spared no expense to protect us, because bow hunting season for deer was in progress. Among the fine edibles were Hericium erinaceus, H. coralloides, and Naematoloma sublateritum (Brick Tops). Many of these found their way into Mary Ann Parry’s cooking pot. The “complete” species list follows this brief narrative. I put quotation marks around complete, because the list would have been much longer had we had a more knowledgeable collector among our number. Typically we find a good 20 unidentified specimens at Groves Wood each year we come. The excellent photos were provided by Ian Adams.

Chiles Developed Heat to Beat Fungus, UW Research Finds
By Sandy Doughton
Seattle Times,

Monday August 11, 2008
Why are chilies hot? University of Washington scientists say spice protects the plants from fungus.
The delicious burn that chile lovers savor is the result of an evolutionary duel between the plants and their predators, according to new research from the University of Washington.
Working in South America, ancestral home of all chilies, scientists showed that the chemical that gives peppers their punch also helps ward off a seed-killing fungus, Fusarium semitectum.
"To me, this answers the fundamental question of why chilies are hot in the first place," said OW biologist Joshua Tewksbury, lead author of the study published online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The research adds to evidence that capsaicinoids (cap-say-sin­oids), the spicy compounds in chilies, can be deadly to a wide range of microbes. Many experts believe that germ-fighting power is the reason ancient people began eating peppers. "People prob­ably added chilies to their stews because spicy stews were less likely to kill them," Tewksbury said.
Chiles were first cultivated in the New World 6,000 years ago. Traders and explorers, including Christopher Columbus, brought them to Europe. They quickly spread around the globe, and are now part of the daily menu for a quarter of the planet's population.
Tewksbury and his colleagues studied a Bolivian chili that comes in different versions, from hot as a jalapeno to bland as a bell pep­per. They found the mild peppers were more than twice as likely to be infected with fungus as the spicy versions.
The fungus slips inside chili pods after their protective skins are pierced by insects with beaklike snouts. In areas where those bugs were plentiful, most of the chili plants produced spicy fruit. And in areas where there were few insects and little danger of fungal infection, most of the chilies were mild.
The scientists also tested their hypothesis in the lab, creating a kind of artificial chili soup that contained the same nutrient mix as the real chilies. They added varying amounts of capsaicinoids, then inoculated the cultures with the fungus. In mixtures that contained the spicy chemicals, the fungus grew much more slowly.
Tewksbury's earlier studies in Arizona found that producing spicy fruits also helps protect chili plants from being eaten by packrats, mice, and other mammals, which can't stomach the heat. But birds are oblivious to spice. Chile seeds pass unscathed through their digestive tracts and are dispersed across the landscape.

Fungus Slows Spread of Gypsy Moths
By Rebecca Finneran

The Grand Rapids Press, July 20, 2008
Hundreds of people in West Michigan looking for county-wide spray programs to kill caterpillars of the gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar) soon may be thanking the power of a natural fungus that is doing the job for them. Large-scale spray programs can be difficult to manage and may upset the natural balance of this pest's predators.
Gypsy moth caterpillars, which feed mostly on oak but also will defoliate birch and poplar, have been on the rise around the state this year, according to David Smitley, a Michigan State Univer­sity entomologist. Although their feeding damage and excrement soon will end for 2008, widespread aerial spraying next spring to prevent invasion may be unnecessary, Smitley says.
"Hold on a minute: There is a good fungus among us," he said.
Because of intensely dry springs, gypsy moth populations have been on the increase. "Gypsy moth caterpillars are dramatically more abundant in many parts of the state because of a cycle driven by their natural enemies," Smitley says.

One of the most effective enemies is a fungus called Entomophaga maimaiga, which thrives in a season that has plentiful rainfall. This fungus infects caterpillars, and they die head down on the trunk of the tree. As the days wear on, the insect body will shrivel, dry up, and fall to the ground.

Once the fungus is inside the caterpillar, it not only kills the cat­erpillar but turns its body into a spore-producing "mushroom" in about a week. Just like mold on bread, the fungus will produce thousands of spores that will be the best defense against gypsy moth outbreaks next year. Caterpillars that do turn into moths, mate, and lay eggs will be affected upon hatching next spring. Small caterpillars will die quickly and continue the spore-infec­tion cycle, Smitley says.
I live in oak woods, and for the last four weeks, I have noticed these shriveled, dry gypsy moth caterpillars lying on the sidewalk or under the rim of a planter. With recent rains, I observed hun­dreds, if not thousands, of caterpillars that are soft but dead and are facing down.
Insects, such as gypsy moths, always will be in Michigan, but we can expect to see increases and declines in populations as weather cycles perpetuate natural enemies.
"Fortunately, Entomophaga is very host-specific and only infects the gypsy moth and not any other animals," Smitley says.
This is the time of year to be looking for this phenomenon. If Entomophaga is active in your area, the gypsy moth population will naturally decline. If you choose to spray next spring, you may never give the natural enemies a chance to shine.

July Foray—A Quiz
By Tony Wright

Ed. Note: a different take on the same fungal parasite.

On a July Foray in our area, you have been assigned to record the fungal species found. A participant brings you a piece of bark with a lifeless caterpillar dangling head-down from it, and says “Please add this to the list.”
How do you respond?
-That’s not a fungus, it’s a caterpillar!


-Certainly; how do you spell the name of the fungus?

Any ideas? What is remarkable about this caterpillar?
A check with the field guides will tell you that this is a Gypsy Moth Caterpillar. The gypsy Moth is a native of temperate Asia and Europe, but was introduced to the Boston Area in about 1869, in a failed attempt to set up a silk-worm operation *. The caterpillar of the Gypsy Moth has a voracious appetite for leaves; it prefers leaves of oak, apple and birch, but will accept leaves of over 300 species, including conifer needles. One caterpillar can consume a square metre of foliage in its brief lifetime. Many trees can survive one season of defoliation by this caterpillar, but repeated attacks can weaken or kill them; apparently conifers may be killed by even one season of defoliation.
This threat to North American trees was well understood even in the early days. In Japan, where the Gypsy Moth has been present for ages, a fungus was known to be a very important natural enemy of these caterpillars, and this fungus, Entomophaga maimaiga, was introduced to the U.S. northeast in 1910. Unfortunately, the introduced fungus seemed to disappear, as searchers could not even find any trace of it in the years that followed.
Without many natural enemies here, populations of Gypsy Moth eventually took a real hold, exploded in the U.S. northeast in the 1970s and started to spread rapidly (in 1981 it defoliated 5 million acres of tress in the northeast). Researchers renewed their efforts to find measures to control the damage, but in 1989 observed that many Gypsy Moth caterpillars were dying of what appeared to be a viral disease; closer examination revealed that the cause of death was fungal. Entomophaga maimaiga had suddenly reappeared and was significantly reducing Gypsy Moth populations (Entomophaga means insect-eating, and maimaiga ** is Japanese for Gypsy Moth).
Ontario has not been immune from Gypsy Moth infestations, nor fortunately from the activities of E. maimaiga, which was identified here in 1990. It is a microfungus, not visible to the naked eye, which infects the caterpillars, and causes them to die in a distinctive head-down position on the trunk of the tree. The fungus spreads through short-life conidia dispersed from the cadaver by the wind, and through long-life resting spores which fall with the cadaver to the ground and lie there to infect future generations. We are fortunate in Ontario that blue jays, chickadess and robins eat the caterpillars, but defoliation by the Gypsy Moth would be much, much worse if this fungus were not present here. Our beloved Ontario tress will surely join MST in expressing thanks to our very helpful friend, Entomophaga maimaiga!
* The aim was to breed a hybrid silk-worm that could feed on the leaves of many trees, not just the mulberry. The story of the driving individual and the economic setting of the attempt is one of the stories in “Aliens in the Back Yard,” a book by John Leland (2005), and can be read in an online excerpt.
** Mai in Japanese means dance, and the Japanese name of the moth may well derive from the habit of the young caterpillars to spin fine threads on which they dangle from the leaves of the trees (called ballooning), and allow themselves to be blown up and down by the wind (appearing to be dancing?) and transported to nearby trees.
You may be familiar with Maitake (dance mushroom), which we call Grifola frondosa, but in this case it is presumably the happy collector who is “dancing” on finding this prized edible.

Fungus Foot Baths Could Save Bees

Science Daily (July 28, 2008)

One of the biggest world wide threats to honey bees, the varroa mite, could soon be about to meet its nemesis. Researchers at the University of Warwick are examining naturally occurring fungi that kill the varroa mite. They are also exploring a range of ways to deliver the killer fungus throughout the hives from bee fungal foot baths to powder sprays.
It is well known that bees world wide are suffering serious declines and one of the causes of that decline is the varroa mite, Varroa destructor. Varroa mites feed on the circulatory fluid of honey bee pupae and adult bees, and in so doing they activate and transmit diseases which reduce the life expectancy of the bees and cause the colony to decline. Varroa has had a major impact in all countries where it has become established; for example it has caused losses of 30-50% of honey bee colonies when it first arrived in the UK and is now endemic. The loss of honey bees on this scale is affecting the pollination of commercial crops and wild plants. It originates in Asia, but has extended its range world-wide.
At present, the management of varroa is based on the use of chemical pesticides, but the mites are developing resistance. Biological control technologies (the use of one organism to control another) could offer a way of moving pest management strategies away from a reliance on these synthetic pesticides but no natural insect or other enemies of varroa species have been identified on the varroa or on their bee hosts.
Now Defra-funded studies by researchers at the University of Warwick’s plant research group Warwick HRI, and Rothamsted Research has found some new natural enemies of varroa from other hosts.
University of Warwick researcher Dr. Dave Chandler said: “We examined 50 different types of fungi that afflict other insects (known as entomopathogenic fungi) to see if they would kill varroa. We needed to find fungi that were effective killers of varroa, had a low impact on the bees, and worked in the warm and dry conditions typically found in bee hives. Of the original 50 fungi we are now focusing on four that best match those three requirements.”
The team now hopes to secure additional funding to further examine the effectiveness of these four fungi and to begin to consider the best ways of applying this weapon across the hive. A number of approaches are being considered including having fungal footbaths at the main entrances to hives. However the complex environment within bee hives means that more devious means of application may be needed.
Dr. Chandler will be hosting the Society for Invertebrate Pathology international conference at the University of Warwick, starting 4th August, where a special session is being held on honey bee health. The session will bring together some of the world’s leading experts in bee colony collapse disorder to discuss the full range of its possible underlying causes.

By Cari Scribner, Schenectady, NY, August 15,2008
Clifton Park, NY - Rainy days and cool nights this summer on the East Coast have spawned an unusually large crop of poison­ous mushrooms.
Experts are warning people to be on the lookout for one of the most dangerous, several closely related species of Amanita commonly known as the "Death Cap" or "Destroying Angel."
Although not posing a risk if smelled or touched, the mushroom can be fatal--even in the smallest doses-when eaten by animals or people, according to health officials.
Late summer is the typical start to the growing season for mush­rooms, but this year's crop arrived early and in greater numbers than usual, according to agricultural scientists.
"There are mushroom species out there that haven't been showing up in this area for several years," said Dr. John Haines, a mycology expert and scientist emeritus for the New York State Museum. "The hot, dry conditions the last two summers have kept them largely underground; these poisonous mushrooms have been waiting for the right conditions to pop up, and this year that's happening."
At the end of July, the state Health Department issued a warning to New York residents to avoid eating all wild mushrooms, after two Rensselaer County residents were hospitalized with severe illness last month after eating wild mushrooms.
[The Putnam County, NY, Health Department issued a similar warning following the death of a White Plains woman who ate "Death Angel" mushrooms picked in a wooded area along a high­way rest area in Bedford.]
Mushrooms have also sickened at least three local dogs, one fa­tally. Clinic Manager Toufic Diab at the Capital District Animal Emergency Clinic in Latham, which takes in sick animals requiring 24-hour care, confirmed that a young 8-pound dog from Clifton Park died Tuesday after eating what was believed to be an Ama­nita mushroom in its backyard. Another sickened dog was in the emergency clinic this week, but a third, poisoned two weeks ago, made a full recovery after being treated there.
A newsletter of Cornell Cooperative Extension in Greene County warned people not to self-identify any wild mushrooms they find around their houses or wooded areas. "There are ab­solutely no hard and fast rules or ways to determine if a given species is toxic or not," said the article's writer, Bob Beyfuss. "Some people do play Russian Roulette by eating unknown mushroom species; that's an enormous risk they shouldn't dream of taking."
Ed. Note: Maybe we need to cast a broader net for foray sites! Of course we can all remember at least one OMS Foray when the weather cooperated, yes???

How to Find Where it is Raining
By Jennifer Frazer
I did a little research and found two great websites that might help us determine where to go mushroom hunting based on recent precipitation. Rain is key to finding good mushrooms, so here are some tools to find where it has been raining…
First we have this:
This website shows precipitation at a national level over the last 7, 30, and 90 days. Just use the drop box at the bottom of the map to change the time interval. This gives a good rough idea of rainfall.
Second, and a little bit better, we have this:
You can choose the state of Colorado (Eds. Note: or Ohio, of course!)and a specific time frame to see raw precipitation, whether this precipitation is a departure from normal, and the total percent of normal precipitation. If you click on percent of normal, you can see the areas of the state that are below normal and thus probably not the best hunting grounds.
For mushroom purposes, the last-7-day data may be most useful. Do with this information as you will.

Errata or Confess- -ions from your Hardworking Editor
Joe Christian informs me I misspoke when naming the host the rust, Gymno-sporangium clavipes, was infecting down at Dawes Arboretum last July (see page 2 of the Sept./Oct., 2008 Log). I got the fungus right, but the common names of two of the rose family host plants were confused. Crabapples (and apples) are all members of the genus Malus, while the genus Crataegus, the host tree in the picture, has the common name of hawthorn, NOT crabapple. Mea Culpa!
Terminology of the alternate host of the rust is confusing enough. “Were it not for the fact that the name “cedar-apple rust” has been firmly established by usage, this disease might better be called “juniper-apple rust,” because the name “cedar” which properly refers to members of the genus Cedrus, is here employed to designate members of the genus Juniperus.” Quoted from a dusty old (1972) book off my shelf, namely Fundamentals of Plant Pathology by Daniel Roberts and Carl Boothroyd.
If ever you needed a reason for using scientific names over common ones, here is one in spades!
