Title:Shaggy mane mushroom near Matawai, New Zealand
Author(s):Hustad, Vincent Patrick
Subject(s):Plant Biology
Abstract:My dissertation research project is a systematic study of the fungal class Geoglossomycetes. These fungi are found worldwide and are especially diverse and understudied in New Zealand. In 2013 I received a Dissertation Travel Grant from the Graduate College that allowed me to visit New Zealand to further my research and foster international collaboration. While returning to the field station after a successful day of collecting with New Zealand mycologists near Matawai on the North Island, we noticed an large troop of shaggy mane mushrooms, Coprinus comatus, in a pasture near the road. We brought back over five pounds of younger specimens to add to our dinner that evening. Delicious and beautiful!
