Observation 189130: Ganoderma P. Karst.

When: 2014-11-20

Collection location: Moscow, Idaho, USA [Click for map]

Who: Earl (EGLunceford)

No specimen available

Found 11-10-2014 growing low on a dead grand fir tree in a shady, moist forest. The mushroom was old and partially rotten. The pores were not in good shape. However I was able to remove a alive of the mushroom to take home with me. The insides are a white, foam-like texture. Chunks I cut up for tea floated and the tea was flavorless. (I know of the reputation for Ganodermas medicinal qualities an thought I’d try it out.) I was disappointed. Then again maybe my ID was wrong. Sorry about the poor photography. It was getting dark and started to rain!
