Observation 205755: Cryptoporus volvatus (Peck) Shear
When: 2015-06-03

Notes: Small semi-globular fungi with a margin that completely covers the pores creating a hollow interior. Some photos show the P.V. completely covering the pores while others show the P. V. tearing to reveal the pores. I cut one veil open to expose the mechanics involved in this species. I have been looking for this for three years, and it was pure luck that I found it. My friend and I were walking thru a plantation of Red Pine interspersed with Hemlock And Spruce, and when we stopped to take a break my attention was drawn to the base of a Tree. It was a “yahoo” moment due to the fact that we were simply looking for other mushrooms that were beginning to arise after a few days of rain. Have three in my garage if any interested party would want them. Bottom photo shows Red Pine with mushroom. This photo was taken with my old camera and I couldn’t adjust it correctly.
