Observation 186691: Laricifomes officinalis (Batsch) Kotl. & Pouzar
When: 2014-10-29
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Still soft and cheesy- NOT HARD like F.pinicola. Note image 3 where my thumb is pushed to the first knuckle into the fresh growing pore structure. At maturity this species becomes less spongy/cheesy and is friable- like a piece of chalk almost.

I estimate this one will continue fruiting for possibly another 20 years or so.

Fruiting on a fallen old growth larch tree.

Elevation: 4500ft.

Temp: low 40’s.
