Observation 201342: Laricifomes officinalis (Batsch) Kotl. & Pouzar
When: 2015-03-20
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Multiple small(spire shaped Agarikon) on old growth Douglas fir.

I’ve been noticing the higher elevation conks are narrower and longer(less width to circular formation of mycelium and pore surface). Also, low oxygen environments seem to effect the shape of Reishi that I’ve monitored. Less oxygen= longer, skinnier fruiting body. With reishi you can get the beautiful long stemmed, almost lobster tail shaped summer fruiters from the base of many mountain hemlock.

Elevation: 4200ft.

Temp: low 50’s.

Bottom images show distant view of substrate.
