Alectoria lata
Flowering witch's hair
What screams October more than witch's hair lichens? Pretty much nothing! A. lata is a fruticose lichen that grows in stiff, entangled tufts. The surface is pale green, gray, or yellow, sometimes dying and darkening toward the base. Prominent white pseudocyphellae dot the surface. A. lata has abundant, large apothecia with an incurving black disc. It grows on pine bark, soil, and rock at high altitudes in North America and eastern Asia. Beautiful, creepy, symbiotic, with flowers in her hair. She can do it all, darling.

Graphis furcata
This script lichen has a smooth, glossy, crustose thallus of pale gray, green-gray, cream, or fawn. It has lirellate apothecia, meaning that the apotheicia grow in long, linear often-branched lines resembling writing. The apothecia are long, sparsely branched, and stick out against the thallus due to their raised, carbon-black rim.

Amanita crocea, the saffron ringless amanita.  It occurs between July and October and prefers hardwood trees, particularly birch and beech in clearings. Its odour is sweet-smelling and it has a mildly nutty sweet taste. The cap is yellow-orange in colour with an apricot tinge at the centre. It expands to become flat or sometimes convex at the umbo, a small raised central area. The gills are cream, sometimes with a slight salmon or pinkish reflection. The stem or stipe is decorated with paler fibrils in a "flame" pattern, with the decoration later becoming orange or brown-orange, with a membranous sack-like volva at the base. It is edible, but since there are many poisonous amanitas, including Death Caps and Destroying Angels, it’s not advised to pluck Amanita crocea for eating, as it can be confused with other amanitas.
