Observation 199654: Fungi Bartl.

When: 2015-01-31

Collection location: Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, Laguna Beach, Orange Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Kevin Lentz (Subverted)

No specimen available

At first I just knew this as the neon yellow leaf I collected – maybe spraypaint, maybe a slime mold, who knows… Finally stuck a bit of scraping under the scope…

This turned out to be even more surprising than either of those, its bright yellow spores.

This is a coast live oak leaf and I did find it near a number of dead branches.

The spores look pretty similar to these ones image 313847 on the only I. andersonii observation 129646.

Any suggestions on how to locate a fruitbody to confirm it is that other than looking for the bright yellow spores?

of the spores of Inonotus andersonii, which form bright yellow carpets near the fruitbodies, which grow on dead oak logs

On oak?

I had uploaded a huge resolution photo of the leaf to start anyway so I just replaced both the images. Seems to all be working now.

May have interrupted your upload…

I just rolled out a quick security patch and I need to restart the system, so that may have interrupted your image upload. Apologies for any inconvenience.
