Collection location: Ricketts Glen State Park, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

These are small (under 2 inches wide), not shaped like craters, and without tanish scales. But I think the 2.5 inch rain storm we just experienced may have eroded scales and/or washed out color.

Walt, P. alveolaris…

did not enter my mind when I ran across this. I would not expect alveolaris to be so pale and so smooth on the cap surface. But the recent heavy rainfall clearly had an effect upon the appearance of the mushrooms in this obs. Pores seen here are uniformely ragged diamond shaped, and radially aligned. So alveolaris looks like a better proposal than craterellus. Nice profiles of these two polypores occupy consecutive pages of Roody’s West Virginia guide.

Thanks for the suggestion.
