Collection location: Juneau, Alaska, USA [Click for map]
Who: Matt Goff (gwark)
I found this mushroom growing on what appeared to be a standing dead Cottonwood tree (Populus balsamifera). It was about 10 inches across the cap. The best fit I’ve seen seems to be Polyporus squamosus, but from what I’ve seen, its distribution in North America is east of the Rockies. Also, the pores seem different to me than in any other pictures I’ve found, though perhaps it’s within normal variation?
