Fungus, Lake Clear ON

Decomposing the deadwood of conifers across North America,
Gloeophyllum sepiarium is fairly easily recognized.

More easily recognized than pronounced or spelled, I’m thinking. If only there were a common name.

Gloeophyllum sepiarium (Rusty gilled polypore)
is a wood decay fungus that causes a brown rot.

Ah ha! The trusty rusty-gilled polypore. Why didn’t they say so?

Yellow, orange, and brown fungus on a conifer stump.

    An artist amongus, too. Your photo is superior in many ways to those accompanying the easily available articles on the Internet. Although, unconscious wordsmith that you are, the common name herewith is Trusty Rusty fungus. (One last fling with the Although-Comma!)

      Laurna – Thanks – I’m glad you liked it. I’ve never heard of the Trusty Rusty, so thanks for that, too. Although.
