Let me know how they are.
I will have to try the edges as food. I harvested one and dehydrated it.
that G. tsugae can grow on hardwoods like birch. In the northern part of Maine there are very few oaks and maples but tons of birch. Over the years I’ve found many types of fungi on birch but never G. tsugae.
I have never found them on any other conifer besides Hemlock. Ganoderma curtisii can sometimes grow on pine and Ganoderma meredithae also grows on pine. But I agree this is G.tsugae. G.tsugae will sometimes also grow on hardwoods like Oak, Maple and Birch.
but in Maine I’ve only collected them on dead eastern hemlock (Tsuga candensis). BTW don’t know if you also collect mushrooms for the table but the cream colored margins of new fresh specimens can be harvested easily from the mushroom without harming it. It is delicious.
I am told they don’t grow on pine. Only on hemlock. Sorry if I misidentified the tree.
