Very strange if it isn’t known from other hosts in Wisconsin and Michigan..?
In Canada (and here in Scandinavia) it’s a parasite on almost every kind of broadleaved trees. It seems most common on birch here, but the reason is simple – birch is the most common tree. Maple and poplars are easy victims too.
Interesting that in northern Wisconsin and Michigan this species (or at least what we’re calling this species) grows exclusively on yellow birch (Betula alleghaniensis).
