I forgot, I believe I have only been to Devels Hopyard once. Prehaps I am wrong but if I was there a second time it was at a different spot. It was the day before the COMA foray and Kim and I were camping nearby, The only thing I got out of the car to…… was a chaga that was growing about 40 feet up in the air I had to stand on the edge of the bridge there and almost fell over the side. It was funny. It was the bridge about a mile or so past the falls. I also just checked with my mother she has a picture of it also and she has not been to the Hopyard. I think Gene and Dorthy also got pictures.

No this was collected at Pipestem, WV. I borrowed it from Tod who collected it to get the picture. He should have the voucher. 5 of us photographed it there. Its cool if the same species was found in CT. The range must be large but I cant find anything looks like it.
