Coral Tooth Fungus

There are sixteen species of Hericium, four of which occur in North America, three in Minnesota. Coral Tooth Fungus (Hericium coralloides) is by far the most common of the three. 

It is fairly common in the northeastern United States and in Minnesota. It is found in late summer and fall in deciduous woodlands and forests. 

It obtains its nutrients from dead wood (saprobic). It grows alone or in small groups on fallen logs, branches, and dead stumps of hardwoods.

Coral Tooth Fungus

When young, the fruiting body is knobby and toothless, and it cannot be distinguished from other Hericium species. When mature, it is loose, openly branched, irregularly shaped.

It is white when fresh, becoming creamy-white to buff or yellowish-tan with age. 

The branches are themselves again intricately branched and have rows of evenly-spaced spines, like the teeth of a comb.

The spines are the spore-producing structures of this fungus, corresponding to the gills on many mushrooms (Agaricales). 

Sometimes a small tuft of spines at the tip of a branch may have spines up to 1″ long.

The flesh is white. It is edible when young and soft, but the spines become brittle with age.

The spore print is white.
