Observation 111248: Abortiporus biennis (Bull.) Singer

When: 2012-09-24

Collection location: about 20 miles north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: naturegirl

Specimen available

I will dry this and give some to the Western PA mushroom club as we actually have a club herbarium. Found in grass, in an area with oak, maple and other trees. Very possible there is buried wood there. This is quite solid, but was easily cut with a standard mushroom knife. Interesting mushroom!

Recognized by sight: I found an older specimen in the same place last year. it was almost dark and caught it with my foot. This is what it was identified as then. I went back this year and looked and found these better ones. Surprising since it is in open grass in a frisbee golf course. One bit looked as if someone kicked it, but the bigger one was unharmed.
