Observation 182066: Bjerkandera P. Karst.
When: 2014-08-31
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: This fungus was found growing around a tree stump in front of an urban school. It has a shelf-like growth habit, with multiple levels stacked on top of one another. It didn’t have a distinctive smell, the texture was smooth and soft. I am pretty sure it would have been growing on an elm tree stump, but that’s just because most urban trees in Winnipeg are elms.

Hi Jacob,

I can’t see the spines here. Also, the flesh is described as soft not tough as in Hydnellum. And the implication here is that it is growing on wood, not terrestrial. It seems more like a fleshy polypore to me. What am I missing?

Thanks,

Terri
