Observation 8090: Meruliaceae sensu lato
When: 2008-05-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This is another example of what I have till now called tree fungi. There are many different types and I have only photographed a small number from a large group. I have enlarged one image to help ID I have added three additional examples of what I believe are the same fungi. (Thanks Douglas.)

The last (3) pictures are not the same as the first ones. Maybe Fomitopsis or Ganoderma or something like that, but not Serpula.

This is dry rot

This is the fruiting body of the fungus that causes dry rot in homes. Try not to take home too many spores from this one…

In the wild when conditions are right it creates these fruiting bodies, but usually not when it infects people homes.
