I had never been to the state of Hidalgo before, however I am working on a book on the bosque mesofilo (cloud forests) of Mexico and decided to visit all of them so I would have some idea what I am talking about. Alonso and I decided to head to Zacualtipan because it is the type location of Psilocybe fagicola. After driving all day we got out of the car in a nice looking oak forest and started looking for mushrooms. I sat down to photograph some Lactarius indigo, and Alonso heard the shutter and walked over to see what I had found. Just 5 feet from where I was sitting, he saw a little brown mushroom - A topotype collection of Psilocybe fagicola, just ten minutes after we arrived. Just a meter away was Psilocybe neoxalapensis. It started to rain so we found a place to camp out. The next morning we found a lot of cool stuff: Scleroderma citrinum I played around with setting the microscope aperture really small and doing a 30 second exposure on the camera, and it turned out pretty well. Shows the reticulation on the spores better when the aperture is tiny. Amanita solaniolens group Entoloma sp. The spores have a cool square shape, like grains of salt. Amanita arocheae - The Latin American version of the death cap Chlorociboria I need to measure the spores on this one to see which one it is. Calostoma cinnabarinum Panellus stipticus With flash With natural light Panellus pusillus Elaphocordyceps ophioglossoides Hymenophore cross section 40x Camarophyllopsis This isn't a genus I see every day, or even every year. The last time I saw it was 2009. Cantharellus Tom Volk said that this was an undescribed species. It's unusually orange. I saved enough for a type collection. Mycena Growing on both pine needles and oak leaves. This is the brightest bioluminescent species I have seen – The caps could clearly be seen glowing even with the lights on. They are almost as bright as glow sticks. I found these by walking slowly down a dark, cold, rainy and muddy road that was full of puddles at midnight with no flashlight.
