Observation 68673: Ganoderma tsugae Murrill
When: 2011-06-05
No herbarium specimen

Notes: About a week ago I observed many newly emerging G. tsugae at Rickett’s Glen SP. Went back today and saw not a single mature specimen. They have apparently all been eaten by the beetles seen in the thumbnail photo. Other photo shows white remains of stipe bases on a hemlock where I spocifically know there had been several Ganodermas.

I’m thinking “heros”, based upon the shape of the black part just behind the head.
