Observation 210287: Laricifomes officinalis (Batsch) Kotl. & Pouzar
When: 2015-07-14
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found 20 feet up on a large old growth Douglas fir.

Multiple old and young sporophores on all portions of this old snag.

Harvested specimen was bone white, had no spore bearing structure(as they usually add a fresh growth layer this time of year), and was found on the ground nearby. A large piece of the tree top had fallen years ago it appears and still had the mycelial matt capable of starting another small Agarikon once on the forest canopy floor. This small specimen(in final images is available for curation or further laboratory analysis to this interested). NO GROWING SPOROPHORES WERE HARVESTED. We left 6 and harvested one past its prime for ceremonial purposes.

Elevation: 3400ft.

Temp: low 70’s.
