Observation 111431: Desarmillaria tabescens (Scop.) R.A. Koch & Aime

When: 2012-09-27

Collection location: Wharton State Forest, Burlington Co., New Jersey, USA [Click for map]

Who: I. G. Safonov (IGSafonov)

No specimen available

Many clusters scattered on ground around and amongst cut down oak and pine trees. I’ve never seen so many honey mushrooms (other species as well) at this particular location (along Rt. 206 to the north of Hammonton) ever since it was partially logged at the end of last year. The reason for logging is unknown (why cut down trees in the middle of the woods?), but it surely contributed to the establishing many colonies of this vicious fungal parasite — from here it will likely spread like a brush fire onto the neighboring healthy trees…
