When: 2011-09-08

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

45.802829° -77.139914°

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

These look like Piptoporus betulinus — white with brownish flaky stuff on top, very small pores, a rounded white raised (lowered?) rim around the pore surface, and erupting from birch with a stubby stipe forcing the bark aside.

Except that they’re freaking huge, up to 10cm wide, not the 2-3 more typical in my experience of P. betulinus.

Found on a fallen Betula papyrifera branch in Zone 48.
