Fomes fomentarius

Recommended Posts

It may have latent tendencies, but it's still a sporulator last time I looked..


you knew what i meant!


that its ever present in wood, even if not in the habitats, and that it is more likely a recycling fungi as opposed to an aggressive parasite if it is as they say and endo sleeping type

Fascinating, the similarities and differences in successive layers, even in closely situated fruit bodies.

Isn’t it !


I went to a heathland site yesterday where there were literally many hundreds of Fomes brackets, would be a fantastic site to study the combative nature of Fomes fomentarius and Fomitopsis betulinus in close and abundent proximity within the same wood volumes. 

Hope this finds you doing well Gary?
