Hosts reported for Hericium species
(a rudimentary compilation; updated 17 March 2019)
Hericium species are opportunistic colonizers of injuries so these lists are representative rather than exhaustive.
A number of the reported occurrences for Hericium coralloides in North America were changed to Hericium americanum (this is noted when it occurs).
It is a good idea to use caution when equating the recognized species across continents. The published accounts, especially those attempting phylogeny, clearly suggest that work in this area is not yet complete. There is also great need for more Asian, New Zealand and Australian collections to be included in phylogenetic studies.
Corrections or suggestions are welcomed and encouraged.
Hericium alpestre see as Hericium flagellum
