Observation 98632: Ganoderma oregonense group

When: 2011-08-27

Collection location: Madera Canyon, Santa Rita Mountains, Pima Co., Arizona, USA [Click for map]


Who: Ivan Rodriguez (Ivan Rodriguez)

No specimen available

Found this collection of bracket fungus on a fallen tree away from a popular hiking trail. I could not get clear shots due to my camera’s fear of shady environments. The fungi were firmly attached to the fallen tree, and they do not seem to resemble Ganoderma tsugae which I initially suspected, but that’s up to discussion.
