The fungi listed here were collected over almost twenty years from 1981 until now by Robert L. Gilbertson and Meredith Blackwell.  The vast majority of collections were made on the Louisiana gulf coastal plain with other collections made eastward along old US Highways 90 and 98 through places which may have taken the names of the early inhabitants of the region:  Livingston, bloody Tangipahoa, Mandeville, Covington, Pascagoula, Mobile, Apalachicola, De Funiak Springs, Gainesville, and to the Atlantic Coast at Jacksonville.  To the west collections have been made largely among the pines and upland hardwoods of the Felicianas and the bottomland hardwood forests of the Atchafayala Basin; we have collected from trees around government buildings and the LSU campus, and from residential streets in Baton Rouge, along the chenière ridge rising from the marsh in Iberia, Terrebonne, and Vermilion Parishes, in the Big Thicket of Texas, and along Interstate Highway 10 as far as Austin.  A disproportionate number of collections were made on living Juniperus virginiana and Quercus virginiana, but a variety of other living and dead wood substrates were collected as well.  The specimens are accessioned in the University of Arizona Fungal Herbarium, where the records of the entire collection have been computerized.  Over the collecting period it has become clear that some fungi, especially those associated as root rots of living trees do not sporulate every year.  Because many of the trees, especially Quercus virginiana,on the campus of Louisiana State University are old enough to have developed infection corts and become infected, it has been possible to observe individual trees almost every day during this period; early spring rains appear to influence the development of large basidiomata on the living live oaks toward the end of July and in August.

About 200 species have been identified from among over 1,500 collections.  These include at least fifteen new species that have been described from the gulf coast, some of which are extremely common.  For example Hyphoderma baculorubrense and Perenniporia phloiophila are to be found on almost every mature live oak (Quercus virginiana) tree throughout its natural range from Texas across the gulf coast and northwards along the east coast at least as far north as Charleston, North Carolina. Inonotus quercustris, a polypore with a large basidioma, is common on the main stem and lower branches of living water oaks (Quercus nigra) across the gulf coastal plain and Ganoderma meredithiae is a common root-rotting basidiomycete of pines.  Other common fungi that have never or only rarely been reported in the United States or North America include Marasmiellus juniperinus, Ganoderma colossum,and Laetiporus perscinus.

Hyphoderma baculorubrense, the red stick Hyphoderma, is shown growing on a live oak at its type locality on the Louisiana State University campus in Baton Rouge. This obscure corticioid fungus with golden basidiomata decays the outer bark of almost all mature live oaks throughout most of the range of the tree species. The fungus normally will not invade the wood, but if an insect or bird breaks through the vascular cambium invasion and decay of the wood will occur. The fungus survives only a few months in cut logs.

Pseudoinonotus dryadeus  LA: Quercus virginiana, Quercus nigra. Inonotus dryadeus growing on the LSU campus at the base of a living live oak. This species is common throughout the Gulf Coastal Plain and forms basidiocarps in late fall. The golden droplets on the basidiocarp surface have antibiotic properties, primarily against gram positive bacteria. Slugs often are found on the surface at night, as in this photograph shot with a flash.

Inonotus ludovicianus

Inonotus quercustris
AL, FL, LA: Quercus nigra

Inonotus quercustris on a water oak tree that grew on Steele Boulevard near its intersection with Broussard Street.  The tree and the fungus were cut down about 1999 by a Baton Rouge beautification group in order to "beautify" a Baton Rouge residentual area. Live oaks have been planted in place of the heart-rotted water oaks.  This was the first specimen to be discovered, but luckily the species is common in water oaks along the Gulf Coast.  It also has been reported from Argentina.
