Mushroom Hike in Hofoldinger Forst near Munich, Germany

Verein für Pilzkunde München e.V.On Saturday, October 8, 2016, I had the privileged of being a guest photographer for a guided mushroom hike with the Association for Mushroom Research in Munich Germany. The hike in the Hofoldinger Forst was led by Rudi Stollner. The rain held off for most of the day and we were able to document over 30 species of mushrooms as a group.


Below is a list of some of the mushrooms that we found on our hike.

Amanita muscaria – Fly Agaric

Auricularia auricula-judae – Wood Ear

Clavulinopsis corniculata (possible)

Clitocybe Species

Coprinellus Species

Coprinus comatus – Shaggy Mane

Cordyceps Species

Crepidotus Species

Cyathus striatus – Bird’s Nest Fungus

Cystoderma amianthinum var. rugosoreticulatum

Entoloma nitidum

Fomitopsis pinicola

Gloeophyllum odoratum

Hebeloma species

Lactarius deterrimus

After our hike, we went to the Landgasthof Altwirt Faistenhaar for lunch. Rudi recommended that I try a traditional dish, which I believe is called Sülze or Sauerfleisch. It was surprisingly delicious.

It was a great experience! I look forward to visiting them again!
