Fomitopsis pinicola

Algonquin Provincial Park, Bat Lake
25 June, 2006

I believe that these are three different examples of the same species. All growing on dead stumps and commonly called the Red-belted Polypore. Roger Phillips (Mushrooms and Other Fungi of North America) says that this is the most commonly collected Polypore in North America.

very nice fungi. with the browned surface and white rim, they kind of look like pancakes right off the griddle.

Hi, I wonder if you could identify the species on this foto on my blog:
I've been having trouble. I think they are 'fomitopsis pinicola'.
Love your blog BTW!
