Observation 6235: Phlebia coccineofulva Schwein.
When: 2008-01-30
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This beautiful crust fungus can be easily identified by its bright orange spore bearing surface borne on a yellow subiculum (the “flesh”). It common here in the driftless (unglaciated) area of Wisconsin, but I know of nowhere else it is as common. It is also known from Europe in rather small fruitings. One of the pictures shows an entire log in the forest largely covered with the fruiting body of this crust fungus.
