Observation 195900: Trametes Fr.
When: 2015-01-08
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I found this mushroom growing on a dead stump.
Not sure what the tree was that the fugus was growing on.
I know Amalaria mela is growing throughout the yard but this
is a conk so it is not Amalaria.

gibbosum or T. pubescens possible in your area, Chad. (In my area, T. versicolor more likely.) I know this may be difficult to find out, but knowing what kind of tree stump the fungus was growing on could eliminate some things.

BTW, Amalaria mela is probably Armillaria mellea, or “Honey mushroom”. That is often an indication of a recent tree death.
