Alan- a better location would be…

Hi Alan, I prefer to use North San Juan location for stuff around the townsite on hwy 49, and the San Juan Ridge, CA location for the greater geographical area 10-30 miles out of town…but whatever.

degrees of hirstute

Apparently one big “split” is in the level of hirstute-ness. I wish there was a good description of T. hirstua I could nail down. However the thing does fit well under T. suaveolens, thanks Alan, Noah, Darvin. A new one for the Yuba list. It was growing in a Riparian corridor but collected by another so I will need to go back to see on which species it grew.

I have the specimen, looking at the keys, no real differences except hyphal trama, still smells like anice after three weeks, very pale now lost its colors.

the color here

is misleading. i think the flash darkened the upper surface some. it was paler.

edit: the PNWKC contradicts itself with regard to these two spp. by saying:

(34) Gloeophyllum odoratum This is our only brown Trametes-like polypore with an anise odor. Haploporus odorus and Trametes suaveolens smell of anise, but both have a white context…

and

(48) Trametes hirsuta (Hairy Turkey Tail) Basidiocarps are recognized by the thin, applanate, tough, hirsute, zonate pilei. Fresh specimens have a pleasant anise odor.

If that anise odor is lost in older specimens, T. suaveolens is more likely, but the key makes no mention of that.
