    I'm not sure if I'd call this winter "fruiting", but here's what I think is a Ganoderma that appears very colorful in the winter. The image is barely a week old. From the coast down here, but definitely cool temps in the high 30s.

    It's one I posted in the General chat about the redwood forest. It's a fungi common on old hemlock stumps, or the like.

    I'd expect to see it from coastal north California all the way up to coastal Oregon, Washington and B.C., this time of year.

    When we bushwhack or hike, I keep teaching my son to avoid damaging the small ones too, or other folks won't get to see them get big.
