Observation 113899: Tyromyces P. Karst.
When: 2012-10-19
(19.5164° -97.0592° 2623m)

Notes: I am 85% sure this was on hardwood. There were some pines not too far away though.

The surprising thing about this mushroom is that it is soft. It looks hard like Phellinus, but it isn’t.

The taste and texture of the flesh is chalky.

On the underside of the log it grows more or less resupinate, and also forms shelves.

When it gets old it turns brick red.

Herbarium specimen is in the “El Saucal 2012” bag.

the combination of the features you’ve described sounds somewhat like Tyromyces, though it would have to be pretty soft indeed. The resupinate thing might be a problem, too…
