anyone know what this weird pine tree fungus is?
    #1601213 - 06/02/03 01:36 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I've seen this growing on pine trees in the woods a few different times in the past month. I looked through my book, but don't see anything like it. I even read through all the info on puffballs and earthballs, but nothing sounded similar. Thought maybe someone could ID it from these photos:

Here's a faraway shot, showing their pattern of growth:



And here are some close-up shots:









Anyone know what this is??

Those are Cryptoporus volvatus, a farily distinctive polypore.

A nice find and photos!

Happy mushrooming!

EDIT:  My book doesn't even have this species listed in it; I wonder why??  I will have to do a search for it on the net to find out more about it.

EDIT #2:  I just found a  good site on this fungus.  Pretty interesting! :smile:

Namaste.
