Violet-toothed Polypore - Trichaptum biforme Semi-circular fruiting bodies with whitish, brown, and green zones of color.<br />

I think this could be Trichaptum biforme - and that it turned green from algae? Any input would be appreciated!<br />

Habitat: Growing on rotting wood in a mixed forest<br />

  1. So pretty! I agree with Trichaptum! I know the algal growth is common with. T. abietinum. Not sure about T. biforme.
    Edit: seems common in both species

  2. Growing on conifer or hardwood? Posted 4 years ago
