Observation 120089: Lentinellus P. Karst.
When: 2012-12-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing on the roots of a blown over Douglas Fir. The roots are completely ripped of the ground. The tree fell over within the last 2 years. This looks like an oyster.


The first image taken with my new microscope. Eyepiece with reticle will arrive next week.

I put a small bit in my mouth and chewed it. Burning, peppery sensation like a strong radish. My mouth is still burning after rinsing many times. Is that acrid? I’m not sure what acrid means.
