Observation 134172: Fomes fomentarius (L.) Fr.

When: 2013-05-20

Collection location: Birkerød, Denmark [Click for map]

55.8333° 12.4333° 12m

Who: Anders (aklt)

Specimen available

Lots of grey mushrooms growing on top of and on the side
of a Birch stump.

Some of these seemed to have their top cut off which may
have been done by a human. However the mushrooms were on
private ground which should be inaccessible to someone
wanting to cut off the top of the mushroom.

Also, a living branch seemed to be held by one of the
mushrooms. This is curious I think.
