Greenleaf Lake State Rec Area
Darwin, MN (Meeker County)

ECOLOGY: Greenleaf and other nearby lakes form the very edge of the Big Woods, a vast remnant of deciduous forest that once covered 3,000 square miles of South Central Minnesota. Like a shield of water, the lakes protect the forest from wildfire from adjacent Minnesota River Prairie. This area was once a portal from the ancient woods into the Great Prairie. Elm, basswood, oak and ash present.

HABITAT: Growing on well decayed fallen log.

HABIT: Singular to small clusters

CAP: 28-40 mm width. Convex/becoming flat. Brown/tan with dark fibrils (reminiscent of Pheasant Back mushroom).

GILLS: Broadly attached. Close. Dark brown.

STEM: White with tan/brown fibrils. 20 mm length. 4 mm width. Basal mycelium white.

SPORE PRINT: Dark brown/purple
