Observation 45319: Fomes fomentarius (L.) Fr.

When: 2010-05-11

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

On a standing dead Betula papyrifera in D9C. There were many of these mostly small, mostly hoof-shaped conks; this one is 2cm across and tall. From the host and pale conk color I initially thought Piptoporus betulinus but it looked more like Fomes fomentarius on closer examination.
