Observation 109809: Phaeolus schweinitzii (Fr.) Pat.
When: 2012-09-15
(45.8079° -77.1393° 130m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: 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).
