Observation 5257: Fulvifomes robiniae (Murrill) Murrill

Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: large shelf fungus common on standing dead locusts
ST: none
CAP: up to 200-300mm wide, semi-circ, scalloped to entire, v thick and extremely hard to cut (pocket knife doesn’t hack it), blackened and mossy on top

Being just about the only thing that can stomach locust, this ID is a cinch.

Hey Jason,
Hope you are well, good to see you posting hear.
P. rimosus is a great coal extender…. to keep an ember going, even for days- as long as it is kept dry.
