Observation 216030: Hericium americanum Ginns

When: 2015-09-13

Collection location: Cincinnati, Ohio, USA [Click for map]

Who: Vincent F. Andwan (andwanvf)

No specimen available

This specimen appears to be a recent flush, not having matured to long, characteristic spines. I’m confident this is Hericium americanum b/c I’ve previously found mature specimens in the exact same location.
Last time this spot flushed out a fruiting body was two years ago. When I checked last year, several times, no fruiting bodies had formed.

Dark background is the broken butt-end of a log too degraded to identify. Surrounded primarily by oak, pawpaw, hickory, and some cherry. I’m guessing Oak.
