Observation 191264: Corticiaceae sensu lato

When: 2014-11-24

Collection location: Hickory Hill Park, Iowa City, Iowa, USA [Click for map]

Who: Drew Henderson (Hendre17)

No specimen available

This is the 3rd or 4th time my wife and I have encountered this in the same fashion(all on hardwoods). 2 Times in Missouri near Kansas city and twice here at this location. Although we think it still may be non-fungal, it is interesting to wonder why random folks are painting forests purple on only one tree for hundreds of miles deep within non forested lands… Hopefully one day we will discover what this is- or discover the most obscure and fame resistant “installation artist” of all time.

Temp: 12 degrees, light snow.
