Collection location: Cartersville, Georgia, USA [Click for map]
Smelled strongly of anise/licorice, blue/green staining where bruised.
I have read that people do not find Gyms that smell like licorice, well the last few collections I have made smelled strongly of anise/licorice. I have noticed that the cold weather (beginning of spring/fall-early winter) collections smell strongly of licorice, but during the warmer months they just smell fungoid.

Growing from buried wood, I think pine because it was on the edge of a conifer forest, maybe oak though there some scattered oaks throughout the area.
The areas I like to search for Gymnopilus species are areas that have been disturbed recently, usually 3-5 years old. I find lots of wood attached to the base of most specimens I find.
log, base of tree, wood chips? do you know what species of wood?
