INDIANA MUSHROOMS
Pycnoporus cinnabarinus
This gorgeous dried specimen measured 5 cm across.  
These examples of Pycnoporus cinnabarinus were found growing from a
cherry log. Dingy orange upper surface; pore surface saffron red. Largest
shown 3.5 inches (9cm) across. Monroe county, Clear Creek Trail; March.  
These mature examples deteriorated due to continuous wet conditions.  
Dry conditions will sometimes preserve the
brilliant coloration of this
shelf mushroom.
November; Morgan-Monroe State Forest. Note white bloom
on upper surface of these fresh specimens.
