the damaged pores on the obs. I already noted here on MO, do not show “laquered tissue of red skeletal hyphae” where damaged. I’m not saying it may not happen. I am saying many obs. here do not show it.
is not staining. It is lacquered tissue of red skeletal hyphae where insects have bored through it. I found three species of beetle and one millipede feeding on these specimens.
Almost all polypores show the ability to form cap and hymenial tissue where they don’t normally form, especially in response to growth obstacles (sticks, leaves, grass, etc) and damage.
Here are some other obs. on MO with no staining:
I rarely find insect damage on G. tsugae. I noticed in trying to go thru G. tsugae on MO that many observers do not include photos of the pores, making a thorough comparison difficult.
after insect damage on the pores.
Did you notice the red on the pore surface? Very unusual for Ganoderma. Looks like it might be self-healing after damage, maybe? Still, have never seen red on the pore surface of Ganoderma before.
