Observation 134868: Neolentinus lepideus (Fr.) Redhead & Ginns
When: 2013-05-29
No herbarium specimen

Notes: No evidence of a ring or partial veil. But these mushrooms fruited well over a week ago on a large stump of a cut tree (unknown type of tree). Over the years I have noticed frutings of this while driving past the spot on my way home from work. Finally stopped to make an observation today.

Cluster of three with stipes strongly adhered to substrate. Largest one 8 inches across with yellow gills. Smallest one with white gills. Stipe context quite tough.

Spore pic shows spores mounted in Congo red. Difficult to see them in KOH. Sub-cylindrical, approximately 8-12 × 3.5-4.5. White print.

Formerly Lentinus lepideus.
