Lignosus Rhinocerus


Lignosus rhinocerus (Local name : Cendawan susu rimau) is an important medicinal mushroom found in Malaysia. The local community had been using this mushroom as an important medicinal mushroom as back dated even in 1930 as described by a local Malay in Pahang, Tuan Haji Mat Yusop (Corner, E.J.H. 1989, Nova Hedwigia, Beih. 97: 147). Even our former Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s chronic cough has claimed to be cured by this mushroom (The Star, 2002).
