RD: Sent you a message in regards to the member.
This one looks like agarikon...the one that Stamets is always talking about. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laricifomes_officinalis
Sweet pics as always!
I keep starring at that pic, BYC; waiting for a paper wasp to emerge from it
you, good sir, might be correct. On mushroomobserver I have been outvoted by Darv, who also believes it's Fomitopsis officinalis , the updated version of your suggestion. His explanations and your vote changed my vote, so thank you.
Oh wow; you really DO live in God's country!
I have a relative that lives near Vida
I'm blessed for sure to live in this valley and be surrounded by mountains and rivers and the ocean an hour away. The only place I'd go from here would be New Zealand
This is exactly what I had thought when I saw that.
It looks like the one he is holding up next to his head in that picture of him you always see with agaricon.
That pic does look a hell of a lot like the pic of g. Applanatum in figure 261 on page 229 of mycelium running.
That's a tough one, lol.
Great pics as always RD, I've never been on a mushroom hunt, your pics are inspiring me to try to get out and see what's around.
And the debate continues
There are some absolutely priceless discussions on MushroomObserver, it is an invaluable tool to add to your arsenal if you are serious about identification.
I'm going back to Momma Bear's hood in the morning. I hope I can find this again so the evidence can stand for itself.
Bring your bear spray and your 44mag revolver
And a spare pair of panties
quality, when hunting mushrooms in bear country always remember to bring a fresh pair of panties
Small update, I tried to find this one again but failed. I'll just keep returning until I stumble upon it or I go insane with failure.
This second picture was fruiting less than a foot away from the above shot.
Here are the new collection, a fair assumption in my opinion based on similarities in overall appearance and habit. These are fruiting in the same general area as the other day's, from Pseudotsuga menziesii (Douglas fir).
ID'd as Ganoderma annularis. I'm waiting on some donated reading materials to further study this one. Rare, not well documented......RARE!
I've changed my vote on the first find to Ganoderma annularis as well and I hope I can find it again.
Anywho, thanks for looking
Sounds like propagation of it may be in order
Separate names with a comma.
