Growing on what appeared to be a small oak

Recommended Posts

Hey All, 

spotted these while driving. Knocked on the door and asked the owner of I could cut a few and he said that I could. Also mentioned his neighbor used to come and take them 

Caps had a sticky feel to them. Pattern almost like a dryad saddle. Hoping these aren’t more scaly caps! Still haven’t found a damn hen!

can anyone make a positive ID?

Thanks Dave, still yet to find a hen. Did well with chickens this year but still have yet to ever find a hen. Found some massive oaks today bit nothing. Getting a bit discouraged I must admit

Here in NE PA last year was a notably productive year for Grifola. Not surprising that there's few to be found at this current point in time --around here as well. Presumably, the Grifola fungus growing on the roots of tree uses a lot of energy/nutrient to produce the large fruit bodies we call "Hen of the Woods" or "Sheep's Head". This may now be a time of reloading for the fungus. Maybe some late ones, though...?
