Observation 216540: Laetiporus gilbertsonii Burds.

When: 2015-09-19

Collection location: Little Skookum, Mason Co., Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Steve (Lokness)

No specimen available

Host tree very large but rather dilapidated old willow tree. Previously this sulfur shelf fruited 10 feet or so high in the tree while this year it is near base. One part of the tree that has broken off years ago also has a fruiting (not shown) – so there are two polypores now. Willow tree is still alive. ………There is a secondary white infection of the L.gilbertsonii that is clearly evident.
