are common in the macrofungi world. There is a lot of anecdotal information on immune system enhancing fungi. Unfortunately not much good science.

I believe I have found this species in Upstate NY.
Can this be possible. The ones I have found have teeth.
I cannot view the underside of this but the top appears IDENTICAL to what I have found last fall (2013)
if these have any medicinal value would someone be KIND enough to email me please? I have a very good friend whom has Bladder Cancer & we are exploring the possible links to a strong immune system through ingestion of Fungi.
She is already taking Chaga but in capsule formula.
Any responses will be TRULY appreciated.
Thank you. Regena regenadau@gmail.com
