Observation 165310: Laetiporus cincinnatus (Morgan) Burdsall, Banik, & Volk
When: 2014-05-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: We are currently experiencing a very cool and wet spring. So, knowing what this can do for Laetiporus species I took yesterday off and spent some time in the woods searching the big red oaks that I have had success on in the past springs and falls. I hit the mother load, but the one that really got me was this one….it was growing about 30 inches up on what otherwise appeared to be a very healthy Red oak tree, layered and stacked, and white pored as can be!
When I first saw it I knew it was L. sulfurous…I was wrong!
It was a great day and I only hope that all of you have one too.

this one was on the tree all by itself.
the rest I found within a mile or so over about 300 acres of very old mature forest.

Interesting observation

Were the rosettes found beneath the same tree the shelf was on?
