Xylaria Polymorpha

... or Dead Man's Fingers Mushroom...this is how they look today. They have lost that beautiful blueness and are now black. The 'finger at the top of the photo has been sliced lengthwise. I finally found the identification on the app for the phone. It was the very last one of over 2,600 photos !! It is not edible and I am glad for that.

  2. What interesting mushrooms. I looked at their photo in the post below, too. Nature is so diverse - thanks for pointing out something else to look for in the woods.
