FBO Outing



Églantine and I were out with the Field Botanists of Ontario yesterday in the area of the Halton Hills. One of our finds was Laetiporus sulphureus. It's common, and more colourful, name is "Chicken of the Woods."

I wonder if I saw some of this once in my Missouri woods. It was as big as my boot.

Yes Pablo, I suspect it was. The books say it can be up to 30 cm (1 foot) in diameter and I think I have seen it even larger.
