I was told by the PSMS that it was H. erinaceus, but a rare form with one large clumped branch as opposed to many smaller ones.

Trade should be fine as long as my hunting companion (hopefully) took care of it, I left it in his car in a hurry after the PSMS show.

this doesn’t look anything like the hericium erinaceus or cirrhatum that i find in Ontario. Thats not to say i think you are wrong. Did you take a sample? We clone all the hericium we can find. I’d love to trade.

perhaps it’s coralloides, a rarer species.
