So surprised to find this small, primordial fruiting of Bear’s head so early in the season. Not to mention we have had record setting temps and durations over the last month and a half here. Over 100 at our home in nearby Yakima, WA for over a week at one point.
Collected at 5000ft. elevation.
Fruiting on/in a large fallen spruce.
Temp: low 70’s.
Apparently the lack of rain, extreme heat and bumper season for bugs did not effect this species in the slightest this Summer. Earliest I have collected Hericium here is usually during the first or second week of September.
