On White Fir

as for the scales on the stipe, (lucky i have a few specimen in front of me) the scales start off very pale, as they go down the stipe they get a bit thicker and slightly darker, although I wasn’t able to get all the way down to the base without ripping the side off the fir snag

Cool

Find. The in-rolled, Appendiculate margin and scales seem to fit P. abietis rather well. Smith considered P. abietis to be near identical to the now defunct taxa squarrosa-adiposa. In his Monograph, Smith separates the species morphologically on the basis that P. abietis has pale brown lamellae when immature and paler scales on the stipe than squarrosa-adiposa.

Was this on Fir? We’re there pale scales growing thicker toward the stipe base?
