Observation 119126: Hericium erinaceus (Bull.) Pers.
When: 2012-12-06
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Observed growing from a hollow of an oak tree ~6 feet above the ground. Beautiful specimen weighing 1 lb 4 oz; dimensions approx 14 cm diameter x 10 cm tall. Surface not shown in picture (growing against tree) flattened. Spines were measured as 2.5 to 3.5 cm long; no branching evident. Should have photographed in situ, but too excited by my good fortune to think of this…
