Observation 67586: Laetiporus cincinnatus (Morgan) Burdsall, Banik, & Volk

When: 2011-05-14

Collection location: Chesapeake Arboretum, Norfolk, Virginia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Brenda White (CuriousMe)

No specimen available

I figured it was in the Bracket Family, but had to research to get additional information. I found it at the base of a large tree, the “chicken mushroom”-laetiporus sulphureus was about 1ft. in diameter. I decided not to clear off the debris’(leaves, twigs, etc), because I would have had to damage surrounding brush to reach the mushroom.
