Spotted: Spooky black mushrooms in Menlo Park yard

by Linda Hubbard on January 30, 2017

The lumpy black mushrooms that appeared last February are back, right on schedule (or nearly so). Emails Menlo Park homeowner Eric Sabelman: [They’re back] in plentiful quantities, the same species [slate grey saddle or fluted black elfin saddle (Helvella dryophila)], and mostly in the live oak leaf where I first saw them last year.”
