    Chaga??

    Okay, found a couple of these

    Chaga??

    Cool. Any advice on the best way to harvest it, so it might continue to grow in the future?

    Chaga??

    Just get a sample, post the picks and send a sample to to Steve Russell. He may contact you or I'll PM his address to send it to.

    Chaga??

    I'm headed to the woods tomorrow, where I found that growth a few years ago. I'm planning to go back and see if it's still there. I'll take pictures of it before I harvest it. If anyone wants a sample for study, let me know.

    Chaga??

    The one I found was in northern Indiana.

    Chaga??

    If this one does come back as Chaga it would only be the second one documented in Indiana, both I think were from northern Indiana. So I think if you have a possible Chaga species, I'm sure Steve Russell would like another, especially if from a more southern location.

    Chaga??

    If this is indeed Chaga, then I'm sure it's the same growth I found on an oak tree. If another specimen is needed from another source, I'd be glad to not only harvest one, but also show where it's at to anyone researching this

    Chaga??

    Seriously? That must be a new discovery. I'm looking forward to seeing something published on that. Can you please update on this thread when that happens?

    Chaga??

    Just as an update it seems it is confirmed as chaga. Sent a sample to Russel the president of indiana mushrooms

    January mushrooms

    Well, here's the spore print: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1YgSEC73dZUZolUO9i6l3Qnv3TUnMTBA8 Kinda buff- or cream-colored, and not very dark at all. Along with the robust stem and notched gill attachment, I'm currently leaning towards a Wood Blewit (Lepista nuda). Could be wishful thinking on my part. Bruce

    I'm certainly willing to do that, but in the past times you've suggested that to me, you never gave me your mailing address. Getting a spore print at the moment. Bruce

    There are a few possibilities that jump to mind, but I am not sure of the species off hand. If you would be interested in drying the speciemns, I would take a closer look at it. - Steve
  21. Remarkably enough, some mushrooms are coming up in January in central Indiana. Here are a couple I found this afternoon growing in blue spruce needle duff. If anyone could ID, I would be grateful. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qLR48UGZWEh6Vu7UhYK1g9KY26SbZraO Bruce

    Chaga??

    Ok got a few more pictures but the lighting this time of year is awful. Also, will post on the Facebook thing just waiting for join request. There was also a small spot coming through on the other side of the tree. Found another one that looked similar though a lot smaller. Both trees had the same toadstool as shown in pic
  23. Ryanoceros

    Chaga??

    Its definitely a fungus of some kind, not a growth of wood. I'm going to go back today and try to grab some better pictures
  24. Hoosierfunguy

    Chaga??

    It's not Chaga. I saw this exact same formation on a wounded oak tree around here. It's a growth. My first thought was Chaga, But like you noted, it wasn't on birch. After having found Chaga in Minnesota, it is not Chaga. The look alike that I found on an oak appears to be some kind of sap build up on a diseased oak, as when I cut it off, there was quite a bit of liquid. The inside doesn't have that golden color to it. It's more rusty.
  25. Chris Christensen

    Chaga??

    It does look like Chaga, but I'm not good with pictures. If you have the geo tag on and you found it in Indiana, Steve Russell may be interested. Only one confirmed in Indiana so far. Or post it in Indiana mushrooms on Facebook. That's a sister group to this one and is more active.
  26. Ryanoceros

    Chaga??

    Yes sorry, was NOT on a birch tree. I'll try the pictures again.
  27. Hoosierfunguy

    Chaga??

    The pictures didn't show up. Did you mean that it wasn't found on a birch tree?
  28. Ryanoceros

    Chaga??

    So I found what I'm pretty sure is chaga...only problem it was on a birch tree! See picures. Any help would be appreciated! As a bonus I also found some late frozen oysters! still had a few good ones! (the glove was for my friend who said I was wasting my time)
