Observation 29921: Fomitopsis pinicola (Sw.) P. Karst.

When: 2009-09-19

Collection location: Mariposa Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: R.M. Segnitz (rmsegnitz)

No specimen available

A lovely conk, this Red Belt was seen near Yellowstone National Park. Its creamy white spore producing
surface and rusty zonation on the pileus are a dead giveaway of F. pinicola, and its other features key out in Mushrooms Demystified.

Also included is a microscopic section of the tubes showing basidia and long, intertwining cystidia extending within the tube interior.
