A little abstract fungus something on a warm sunny day in New England.
Ganoderma tsugae, along with G. lucidum, are herbal mushrooms used for a variety of applications. I am not an herbalist or a mycologist so that’s all I have to say on the subject. Since I don’t forage it is of no consequence to me and I never suggest anyone should eat anything based on something I post here.
Here’s the whole fungus…one of several digesting the hemlock that hosts them.
As you can see by the “stump” above the mushroom, some forager is at home possibly relaxing with some reishi tea.
