Observation 3812: Bondarzewia berkeleyi (Fr.) Bondartsev & Singer

When: 2007-07-26

Collection location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Kerry Britton (kbman)

No specimen available

Notes:
This is a classic specimen of a well developed Berkley’s polypore of good size.
The strong anise-like aroma, cream colored caps and white pore surface are distinguishing features as well as the overall size and aspect of the fungus.
I have seen enormous specimens in excess of 100 lbs. or more on some of the old oaks right in my neighborhood in the city.
Some have even pushed up 6-8 foot section of the sidewalk!
