Who: Judi T. (AvidAmateur)

No specimen available

Fruiting at the base of a mature Black Locust tree on residential common ground. I have backed off the confidence level on this a bit because I have not seen such a non-uniform pore surface like this one on sessile before, i.e., sections of uniform round pores and other sections (image # 3708) that have very large irregularly shaped pores. Don’t know if this is a function of the specimen growing so that the pore surface is actually touching the ground or whether it indicates another species. Also — as seen in image # 3752 — a section of the context looks unusually fibrous and has a series of small holes in a distinct line, which I have indicated with a question mark. I have not seen this before in the context of any Ganoderma. Perhaps someone can enlighten me as to what these are. KOH black on context.
