After an unexpected but fortunate radio contest victory, my wife and I found ourselves relaxing on the beaches of the Mayan Riviera. Staying for a week at The Grand at the Moon Palace was great but we always seem to get the urge to escape and explore the surroundings.
November has made its way around once again and I found myself in Metchosin for another Mycoblitz. With Southern British Columbia experiencing a colder and drier than usual fall, we were unsure of what we would find in the forests around Metchosin. To our surprise and delight, there was still plenty of fungi to be found. Psilocybe pelliculosa (Conifer Psilocybe) and Auriscalpium vulgare (The Earpick Fungus) were some notable collections that made their way into our baskets. Until next year!
