Observation 12790: Trametes Fr.

When: 2008-10-09

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

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

These polypores had an odd whitish substance on top. (No, it was not snow! That’s still a few weeks away in my area.)

Growing from a tree or tall stump in a pine-dominated area. Most likely Eastern white pine, but can’t rule out spruce or a hardwood completely. Maybe I should have taken more notes?

Third photo shows pore surface. There’s fine whitish hairs at the bracket’s margin, too.
