Notes: Found Fomes fomentarius, Trichaptum biforme ( http://www.mushroomobserver.org/21402 ), and Piptoporus betulinus ( http://www.mushroomobserver.org/21403 ) on a pair of adjacent Betula papyrifera snags in Zone 07, an open pine wood with a scattering of spruce, balsam fir, birch, and maple and a thick undergrowth of Beaked Hazel (Corylus cornuta). One snag had T. biforme and P. betulinus, the other T. biforme and F. fomentarius.
This observation shows the F. fomentarius: a conk, closeup of underside showing pores near where conk abuts wood, and wide-angle view of a conk on the lower part of the snag.
Interestingly, the tubes seem to fork into 2 to 4 tinier tubes a mm or two in; these tiny ones are much less than 1mm wide and about at the limit of my camera’s ability to resolve. Moving the lens closer results in an unavoidably out of focus image.
