That does red lists in Europe. Not sure though. In Austria, Switzerland and Germany it is.

Thanks, Gerhardt

seems to be associated with fir and is very rare. This is my second find, of the first I have no photo, unfortunately. In Europe it is monotypic or 3 species (depends on whom you follow in species concept). It grows in near-to-pristine forests only. It does not even grow outside Eurasia. The genus has been erected by Czech mycologist Pouzar. It is a true polypore. Macroscopically it reminds me much of a cross between Ganoderma, Amauroderma and Polyporus.
Here’s some link (in German, but there is a good picturing with fruitbody and spores):


cool sp.

wasn’t aware of any long-stipitate polypores outside of Polyporus/Royoporus, Ganoderma/Amauroderma/Humphreya, and… the ones I’m forgetting.

What more can you tell us about Podofomes, Gerhardt?
