Observation 69632: Hypocrea Fr.

When: 2011-06-19

Collection location: Hamlin Park West woods, Shoreline, Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Tim Sage (NMNR)

Specimen available

Not even positive it is fungal. Insect caused?

I saw no bugs or anything when cut open, and under the scope I didn’t see anything that stood out (my scope skills are quite new though).

Found on Trametes sp. and the wood the Trametes is growing on.

It is not Stereum, but Trametes. Sorry for the mistake!

Thanks for the link as well, Darv!

I cannot find the paper Christian suggested, but then again I don’t have a ton of experience hunting down scientific papers.

Any help?
