makes this genus very difficult to grasp. It is my opinion that many mistakes have been made when authors on both side of the pond have tried to ID and describe them microscopically (that goes for Hydnellum too). They have only just begun to sort out Sarcodon here in Scandinavia :-)
It was Italian mycologist Pierluigi Angeli who ID’d this mushroom, but I also found a partial description of it under mushrooms similar to Sarcodon cyrneus on the website below. All photos that I find on the web identified as S. underwoodii do come from North America and I suppose strictly speaking this still only means Sarcodon cyrneus is found in Italy so I will ask Pierluigi about it.
are they from Quercus ilex? Could be Sarcodon cyrneus then – if it’s really a separate species..
It’s a shame that so few Sarcodon species have gone through a DNA test.
have you used to ID this as underwoodii (an american species)?
My guess would have been Sarcodon lepidus.
