NORTHERN TOOTH FUNGUS—INEDIBLE

Hydnaceae (Climacodon septentrionalis (Fr.) Karston)

Origin: Latin clima meaning “climate”; septentrionalis meaning “of the north.”

Identification: This is another tooth fungus that has a large shelflike fruiting body with overlapping fan-shaped caps growing in horizontal clusters 6"–13" high, arising from a solid base that forms an attachment about 1.5" wide where it enters the wood. Cap is 5"–6" across, 1"–2" thick near the base, the mushroom’s cap color out toward the margin is whitish to yellowish or buff, turning brownish-yellow when dry, densely hairy and roughened cap surface. Spines on undersurface ½ inch plus or minus long, narrow, with lacerated tips, crowded, pliable; dull white dries to yellowish. Flesh up to 2.5" thick, fibrous, tough, elastic; white; no odor or a mild one when fresh—it smells like ham when dried. Mild or no taste when fresh; bitter when old. Spore deposit white.
