This was another specimen found during the NAMA 2008 Foray that I’m inclined to call Sarcodon cf rimosus. It hadn’t been identified as far as I could tell and may not have left the presort table. It looks somewhat similar to the Sarcodon 1 that Dimitar posted on Mushroom Talk Sept 9th.

…I’m betting that Dimi brought it home to work it up, so maybe you’ll get a name, someday…
There seem to be an array of Sarcodons out there, and names can get set rather randomly. I’d like to see some of it make better sense at some point, but I’m a dreamer…
I think to help people need to get down the taste (bitter or mild), any staining reactions, reaction to KOH, spore size and ornamentations and presence of clamp connections or not. Like I said, I’m a dreamer…
Certainly one of the toothed fungi. I haven’t seen this species, nor do I remember seeing it described. Nice Find! Sometimes what you can’t identifiy is more interesting that what you can!
