Mushroom Worlds #19

Rusty Porecrust Phellinus ferruginosus

This quite an odd fungus. It is called Rusty Porecrust (Phellinus ferruginosus), and is a rusty-brown or gingery coloured, velvety resupinate. It is common and widespread, and found growing in irregular blobs on fallen branches and logs of deciduous trees.

November 2017, found on dead birch, local woods, Staffordshire, England.

  1. I’m going to take your word for it that this is a Rusty Porecrust (Phellinus ferruginosus) but to me it looks like a large pork chop fried to a nice crisp golden brown. πŸ™‚
