Observation 25775: Daedaleopsis confragosa (Bolton) J. Schröt.

When: 2009-09-25

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

This interesting but unfamiliar bracket was growing in Zone 05 on a dead Betula allegheniensis above some Fomitopsis cajanderi ( http://www.mushroomobserver.org/25774 ), which in turn were above some Armillaria ( http://www.mushroomobserver.org/25772 ).

The upper surface (second photo) is decrepit, slightly convex, and rough, with brownish tones. The lower surface is significantly complex, with large pores and an irregular surface contour. The pores near the edge are irregular and the bracket will engulf objects as it expands. Lincoff has nothing that resembles it.

D. confragosa usually have less vertical thickness and a more regular, zoned cap top?
