I cannot produce GOOD micro photos. I can make them with a normal camera through the tubus only without any advices.
Just look at my obs Otidea grandis and you know why.

contains six species, of which one is L. tigrinus, or at least there were six at the time of Pegler’s 1984 monograph. L. tigrinus is by far the most widespread (or perhaps just the most extensively collected/studied) of the section, and is listed as primarily temperate in distribution. Those occasions in which it is confused with similar spp. are restricted to “paleotrpoical and Australasian regions,” according to Pegler, implying that confusion with other temperate Lentinus is unlikely.

Just out of curiosity, what’s keeping you from posting micrographs of your specimens?

there are more than one L. tigrinus?
For about one hundred years now this fungus fruits along the alluvial forests of the river Danube and has been collected a hundred times by different mycologists as well as “eaters” and it has been herbarized and all that stuff and always has been tigrinus. Why shouldn’t it be now?
But no problem I have a specimen saved should there be more to it.
Is there any recent publication of more than one species of tigrinus? I have to say I haven’t heard of yet.
Don’t get me wrong I am thankful for your advice if there is more behind the “mask”.
It’s not that easy anymore to be “DNA technically” up to date and I openly admit not all that is published is to my full consent too.

can you offer?

i am constantly hassling posters of Lentinus with calls for care and consideration in using L. crinitis to describe 95% of the genus. The same could perhaps rightly be applied to L. tigrinus.

I haven’t Pegler’s monograph right in front of me at the moment (all books packed for moving day), but there is at least one of amadej’s always outstanding observations to refer to:


How does yours match up against his?

it is not the true tigrinus?
I assure you it is …
