Observation 160212: Polyporales sensu lato
When: 2014-02-22
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Sept 12, 1971
Victoria Beach
F P Ralston

An old museum specimen in need of identification. Since M.O. does not allow for anything collected earlier than 1980 I used the date this entry was made online.

A number of species of Poria are listed in Bisby et al 1938 “The Fungi of Manitoba and Saskatchewan” but I have no idea how to distinguish them or if modern taxonomy has rendered those names meaningless.
