Recognized by sight: Recognized by sight: “13 Lentinus crinitus (Linn.:Fr.)Fr. (inedible)
The pale yellowish-brown to reddish-brown pileus often with a purplish tint is 1.0-4.0cm in diameter, and covered with loose brown fascicles of brown hairs with free ends. The lammellae are deeply decurrent, slightly fusing or appearing almost poroid near the stipe, and with dentate edges. The stipe is 1.0-4.0 × 0.2-0.6 cm, scurfy, and slightly lighter in color than the pileus. […]This species can be recognized from others by its pale stipe, crowded lamellae, and cap margins that are only slightly enrolled. This species is very common on decaying logs throughout Florida" (Kimbrough, pg. 20-21).
