Observation 23252: Ganoderma tsugae Murrill

When: 2009-06-09

Collection location: Lebanon, New Hampshire, USA [Click for map]

Who: John Carl Jacobs (JCJacobs)

No specimen available

After initially discovering this group of polypores, I was certain they were Ganoderma lucidem, but after rechecking, I found that all four polypores are growing on a fallen Eastern Hemlock , so they must be G. tsugae. All of the pictures that are posted show the fungus while it is wet. When it’s dry, the entire fungus, and everything around it is covered in a rust colored powder.
