Oak Conk

Phellinus gilvus


Another, more spectacular, fruiting of the parasitic oak conk. Many individual fruit-bodies easily exceed a foot in width.


Right across from Comstock Riverside Park


Can't be certain if this tree was killed by the fungi but considering all the other spottings I've had of this fungi, I'm inclined to believe it probably did.
