Collection location: Northacres Park, Seattle, Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: BlueCanoe

No specimen available

Growing on dead alder (Alnus rubra). For similar observations in the same area taken a year ago, see T. Sage’s observation 56172 and observation 56173.


Fungus is located at the base of the alder snag
This is a separate log from the first three photos. This is located inside a dog off-leash area; apparently raw oyster mushrooms do not appeal to canines!

I hadn’t ever been there and I was in the neighborhood so I checked it out. I also recently visited Shoreview Park for the first time — very nice.

Walk your dog there? I’ll be there today with a black pug in a pink harness….

I am going there today for photography, and won’t pick any of them except for a voucher specimen. I wasn’t a big fan of eating oysters.

Myxomop, I clicked on the “Textile markup system” link, which then told me to use an underscore, lowercase “observation” and the ob number, followed by another underscore.

Tim, these mushrooms are still there!

I almost went there today to look for oysters…..

i’ll delete this comment once the question is answered.

how does one link to an observation in such a way that only the ob. number is shown instead of the entire link?
