Hello, we are desperately trying to obtain any kind of information on a 
fungi named Innonotus obliquus which parasites birch (Betula spp).  Any 
lead you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

The reason this fungi is of particular interest is that it is the only 
material we have ever found in the immensity of nature which will hold a 
spark made from the primitive flint & steel technique. We are trying to 
understand this phenomena and find other natural sources with the same 

Thank you very kindly,


Please send a copy of the message to Bourbeau at because we do 
not monitor this newgroup.  Thanks.
Surviving at nature's will...
