This is my fourth "mix" of Romanian mushrooms.
This time I present you some of the Tricholomataceae species. This is a very large and well represented family in Romanian fungi flora. Moreover, recent taxonomy researches added here new genera belonging in the past to other fungi families. For example, genus Hygrocybe, that was part of Hygrophoraceae family is now aligned within Tricholomathaceae family.
Obviously, from so many species, some will be edible, very good, other deadly poisonous.
Here are the names of the ones you see in the photo, starting with upper left corner and finishing with lower right corner:

1. Mycena epipterygia - grows on wood. Small and tasteless.
2. Hygrocybe miniata - nice looking but also small and tasteless.
3. Armillaria mellea - well known, edible, very good.
4. Collybia fusipes - also edible, but not the chef's choice.
5. Hygrocybe quieta - edible, quite good
6. Mycena niveipes - not edible, having a strong nitric acid odour.
7. Clitocybe infundibuliformis - edible, quite good
8. Laccaria amethystina - showy and also edible, especially pickled in combination with other mushrooms.
9. Megacollybia platyphylla - edible, but don't throw away other mushrooms just because you found many of this specie.

I'll probably have to make another Tricholomataceae mix with other species, because this family is indeed very large.

Hope you enjoy

This fungi collage is colourful and attractive with each species clearly shown and arranged.
You should have credit not only for that but for the informative note.

Hello Petru,
Very nice collage showing a selection of fungi. It is hard to believe they all belong to the same family as they're so different. Individual photos sharp and nicely composed.
I think it would be good to include size of mushrooms, something I have neglected myself.
TFS, Ulla

Salut Petru
Excelenta aceasta "compilatie" de poze frumoase cu tot felul de ciuperci misto de pe meleagurile mioritice ;)
Misto idee...am tot vazut alti membrii de prin alte tari cu post-uri similare despre diferite plante sau animale si chiar ma gandeam ca poate n-ar fi rau sa apara una si cu "destinatia" Romania :) Uite ca se pare ca te-ai gandid si tu cam la fel :)
Oricum, toate pozele in parte sunt excellent, iar subiectii foarte aratosi...in special nr. 1 si 8 :)
Faina treaba.

Bravo si TFS

Una bonita e instructiva compilación de imágenes de esta familia con ejemplares tan pintorescos Petru.
Me gusta la composición general, con apropiada presentación y encuadre, buenas imágenes en cuanto a foco, agudeza, color e iluminación, que sin mostrar en detalle alguna de ellas, nos brinda un panorama de la diversidad de la naturaleza.
Muy buen trabajo.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Beautiful and instructive compilation of images of this family with so picturesque specimens Petru.
I like the general composition, with appropriate presentation and framing, good images as for focus, sharpness, color and illumination that without showing in detail some of them, it offers us a panorama of the diversity of the nature.
Very good job.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Hi Petru,
Looks like we have the whole 9 yards here...;-)
And a very nice whole 9 yards it is!
Beautiful collage well put together!
Thanks & TFS,

Again a lovely max-mix of the mushrooms in your area. I appreciate the work you put into this, not only in the photos, but in the notes.
I would like to see the great group of Mycena epipterygia in bigger format, I always find them here in very small groups, not like the great cluster you posted. Lovely composition, colours maybe a bit exagerated in some cases for my personal taste. Well done, and thanks for posting, Felipe.

sal Petru
excelent material pt un poster...

numai bine

Hi Petru.
Thank you for your nice collection and kind words. You are quite right: New Year then Christmas (at 6th to 7th).

You have shared a great work of art. Excellent collage with extremely nice colours. At every shot the mushrooms are perfect sharpened and detailed. I also like the illumination: the combination of lights and shadows are wonderful. Very nice note too. My best wishes and TFS.

Hi Petru,

A real nice work not just for the well combined images but also for the didactic note.

Well Done & TFS.

Hi Petru, this is a fabulous collection of mushrooms. With this collection we get 9 for the price of 1. All of the shots are taken very well with excellent composition, colour and detail, but then the collage itself is extremely well designed and presented by yourself.

Thanks, John

Hi Petru,
Very nice collage showing all of these different kinds of mushrooms. I liked your presentation a lot. TFS.

Excellent collage Petru.
I like most the vivid colors, and great use of flash in every frame :)
Excellent notes.

Hello Petru!
Amazing, and very colurful composition! I like a lot not only great colours and sharpness, but also a diversity of these mushrooms! And moreover, all species are determided! Very useful presentation, full of interesting data.
Many thanks for showing these pictures and have a nice week!

Igual que tu otra fotografía, felicidades por este buen trabajo. Buena calidad de las tomas. En mi zona (Catalunya) es muy popular Tricholoma terreum, muy abundante al final del Otoño y excelente comestible, algo fibroso pero acompaña muy bien la carne jejeje.
Saludos Petru.

Bonjour Petru,
Your "mix" of mushroom is a another pleasure for my eyes and so instructive. These Tricholomes are superb. Nice colors and sharpness. The end of June in my Alps the mushrooms start to grow in advance...
Congratulations and thanks for sharing your talent.
