Observation 10528: Fomitopsis pinicola (Sw.) P. Karst.

When: 2008-05-16

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

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

This is another perennial polypore common hereabouts. Here we have four growing on a stump. The convex tops make me prefer the Fomitopsis identification to Ganoderma applanatum.

Third photo is four months later. The polypores look much the worse for wear.
