Fungi Friday : Mushroom Pycnoporus Cinnabarinus 🍄
Hallo..good morning friends, today we arrived again on Friday. I hope all of you are in good health always.
I found this mushroom a few days ago when I was about to go home after taking my wife teaching at the Sukma Bangsa School, Lhokseumawe. This fungus grows on the sidelines of the palm tree midrib, and is a bit hidden in its location. If the color of this mushroom is not striking (bright orange) then we can be sure we will not know "it" grows there. The size of this mushroom is relatively small, 1-1.5 cm in diameter and usually grows like a row or in layers. I don't know the name and genus of this mushroom, so I looked it up on Google Lens.
The fungus Pycnoporus Cinnabarinus also known as cinnabar polypore, is a saprophytic white rot decomposer. The fruiting body is a bright orange shelf mushroom. This fungus is common in many areas and is widely distributed throughout the world. It can't be eaten. This fungus produces cinnabarinic acid to protect itself from bacteria.
