Observation 200391: Laricifomes officinalis (Batsch) Kotl. & Pouzar
When: 2015-03-10

Notes: Found in the duff beneath a massive Larix occidentalis.

Celadonite evident on log and soil surrounding this carved Agarikon(bright green patina behind Agarikon in situ images). This location and grounds have been recorded and possible excavations may be in order for further anthropological and historically significant native history to be revealed. Interesting that Alaskan and far northern coastal tribes traded so far inland across the state of Washington, Idaho, Oregon and even Montana/Colorado, I hypothesize. Note: Haida shaman, chiefs and war leaders all wore tall, cone shaped hats with multiple “shelves” that strikingly resemble Laraicifomes officinalis. It is also notable that nearly all carvings, totems and later native art from regions east of these locations(inland and otherwise) were copies of the original Agarikon headstones from these remote regions. Agarikon were used for a lifetime and were passed on and traded to those worthy of handling it’s reflective energies. Once submitted the shamen who has given over to the mouth of the dead was said to be immortal. I hypothesize that most all native totems and carvings are all inspired by these original(Ojibwe) mushrooms headstones. Laricifomes officinalis takes multiple lifetimes to form in some cases and even now are very hard to curate, much less carve, maintain and pass on to future generations. Wood lasts much longer and can preserve color/stain much longer. I believe that from these original thinkers and spiritual physicians(Haida, Tlingit) all Native American tribes of the PNW were inspired to imitate and hope for that same power from the effigies painted upon them, only using what was available. Wood, bone, cactus, etc. We now know, and as my current government approved patent will prove, that certain Laricifomes officinalis can and will cure every human pathogen on our planet… Given the right synthesis methods. These synthesized strains I possess and am cloning are currently being reviewed by multiple corporations for said synthesis and of the 11 slants inoculated all are surviving and thriving even when introduced to household bread mold, aspergilus niger and penicillium. All are overrun by pure, white Agarikon mycelium currently at room temp in sterile PDA. My 115 page thesis is being finalized to be published later in June 2015.

In Situ, beneath the old growth Larix Occidentalis substrate and a young Pacific Silver Fir(note the small pimple packets on bark, to left). Celadonite used for painting and Haida artwork still visible with buried sporophore.

In situ-note the already crumbling, friable cap. Another 5 seasons and this baby would have been buried forever.

Once carelly removed from its buried state. Approx. 14 inches from white edge to base beneath the soil(114yrs in duff give or take)

Left hand(as always) for scale. Scale objects in any fungal image help more than most people think. There are ways to do it tastefully, blurry(like mine usually turn out), or dramatically. take3everypost.

Mushroom brush was perfect for getting all the rootlets and decomposed bark matter smoothed off. Growth rings revealed 39 years from my count- I can never tell with the top cone(usually can be 1-3yrs. before the actual second band forms). Could be older.

“The fallen from cascade substrate 7” of my 11collected. Other four were harvested West of the mountains and are each set in each heavily trafficked room of our house. Small conk on top right-donated to SCMS of WA 3/11/2015.
