Strawberries And Cream

The Hydnellum pekii aka "strawberries and cream" mushroom has some interesting medicinal qualities. The red juice it excretes is a natural anticoagulant. This was found along Panther Creek trail on Mount David, September 21, 2010.

Mushroom ID

I think it was Hydnellum peckii - Red-juice tooth/strawberries and cream.

Re: Mushroom ID

Bravo!! You're absolutely right. The underside of the cap has "teeth" which are visible in one of my other shots. Thanks for identifying and thanks for spotting this shroom near the trail in the first place.
