Who: A. Klein (kakaos)

No specimen available

Found growing on a poplar tree.

I found an infected poplar tree along the same path over the winter. I didn’t check the rest of the poplars on the path so I can’t say whether this is a new infection or if it’s spread or not. The fungus might not also have been showing itself yet.

This tree is also infected with some type of mistletoe, as are many of the others around it.
