When: 2009-09-29

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

45.797683° -77.1303°

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Conks that resemble Ganoderma applanatum, only the pore shots make the pores look pinkish.

On a pine in D4B, a pine-dominated zone that resembles Zone 19 a lot, ecologically speaking. “That” moss is absent, and with it Cantharellula, but Ampulloclitocybe clavipes, Rhodocollybia butyracea, and other species abundant in Zone 19 were abundant in D4B.

This pine just had tons of them — big ones — right at a convenient height for the tripod.

nice shot, Paul.

polypores may make lousy entrees (Grifola frondosa excepted) but they certainly can make for an aesthetic photo!
