fungi mushroom found on Bear Springs Blossom Nature Preserve Texas Hill Country
It is a separate kingdom from the plant kingdom because fungi don't contain chlorophyll like green plants, fungi don't use photosynthesis.
Some fungi have to produce their food by breaking down organic matter, some take it directly from plants.

If fungi take down dead organic matter, they are called decomposers or saprophytes.
If fungi take from living plants, they are called parasites.
If fungi, especially in the edible and poisonous group, form a beneficial relationship with another plant, we call them mycorrhizal.
mushrooms can look pretty, other mushrooms are edible

What we see is the fruiting body, mostly called mushroom.
There is a wide variety of fruiting bodies, some with cap and gills, boletes with cap and pores, other look like sea corals, or like a sponge, or a brain.
With enough rainfall many different mushrooms can be found in the Texas Hill Country.
Mushrooms can grow almost any time of the year, but enough rainfall is important.

Before you go out there and collect mushrooms, learn the identity of deadly species.
Members of the following genera contain the most highly toxic fungi:
Amanita, Galerina, Gyromitra, Clitocybe, Omphalotus, and Inocybe.
The genus Amanita includes the death cup = botanical name Amanita phalloides and the fly agaric = botanical name Amanita muscaria
Be aware of the false morel botanical name Gyromitra esculenta.

Members of the genus Galerina are responsible for the highest numbers of mushroom fatalities.
The chance of death from ingestion of members of the genera Amanita and Galerina is up to 90 %.
Even members of the genus Cortinarius are normally edible, there are reported cases of kidney failure.

So, be really careful - only collect mushrooms when you are absolutely sure you know the species!
