Abies alba

occurs in plantations here and there, and is spreading spontaneously in the southern part of Sweden. They are often used as ornamental trees.

But I found the fungus on spruce.

Do you have fir trees up in the north?

Here it almost exclusively grows on firs. Seldom it can be found on spruce or douglas fir if you trust literature but I never have seen it on any other conifers than Abies alba.

Nice find

Another one that I have only found once and haven’t seen for 20 years..
