When: 2012-09-15

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

45.8079° -77.1393° 130m

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

A ground-dwelling polypore in Zone 19. At first I thought it might be the Hydnellum previously found a few times in Zone 38, but overturning one of the two fruit-bodies revealed pores, not spines.

It has the same general geometry as the Hydnellum — an upside-down cone on a short stipe — and the same property of engulfing objects like pine needles as it grows (something many polypores will also do).
