Observation 130694: Stereum striatum (Fr.) Fr.

When: 2012-02-14

Collection location: Red Rock, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Phil Yeager (gunchky)

No specimen available

Small, thin, white, parchment like fungus with brownish hymenophore. Cap silky and concentrically groved with radial striations. If I remember correctly this was found on an American Hornbeam. What puzzles me is the fertile surface which is supposed to be smooth is Stereum species, but Phillips states that it can be concentrically zoned. Therefore I shall say S.Striatum Final answer. The final photo was taken under a magnifying lens. Don’t think it will help though. Added two photos. This is the best I can do with this camera. Hope it helps.

I’ll take a few photos under a magnifying lens and add them to this posting. I’ve been looking at them under a lens and I still can’t arrive at a definite conclusion. Perhaps someone with better vision can describe the surface in question.

Phil, it’s difficult to tell…

from zooming in on the photos whether or not the fertile surface has pores or is just uneven/bumpy.
